Nov 17, 2020

It's official, the 2020 Geosteering World Cup is in the books! Coming out of the semi-finals it was apparent that Anton Zyabkin was a name to watch as he paced the field with an average success score a full 3 points above his closest rival.

By the time the dust settled on the sand-rich final wellbores of the competition, we found that Anton’s consistency across all wells in the competition left him hoisting the 2020 Geosteering World Cup with a total score of 141.8. South America’s own Andrea Infante’s remarkable run in the second round of the final boosted her all the way to a global #2 ranking and a Latin American Regional Championship with a score of 126.1. Houston’s Pat Tobin took home the North American Championship and a global #3 ranking based on his total score of 118.2. And Australia’s Robin Viljoen rounded out our group of regional champions with a score of 115.2.
