KAPPA was created in September 1987 by two former increasingly grumpy Flopetrol-Johnston Schlumberger engineers who specialized in well test interpretation and production logging: Dominique Bourdet (1951-2003), who left the company in 1991, and Olivier Houzé, who, since then, has been the KAPPA Managing Director.
