Guillaume Cambois and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG)
If the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) does not enforce a standard of conduct congruent to its published Code of Ethics, then the SEG simply becomes a club of the corrupt formed by lies and stolen money for their own self aggrandisement.
Guillaume Cambois was part of the Petroleum Geo-Services Executive Management Team and participated in the harassment, defrauding, discrimination, defamation, and blacklisting of an Active Member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). These same claims were documented within the workplace grievance submitted to PGS September 20, 2013 which have been suppressed.
Guillaume Cambois remained silent as the upstream oil and gas professional community was lied to and deceived repeatedly. Cambois participated in corrupt PGS business practices which included defrauding the LinkedIn professional community, as well as government data protection and immigration agencies. Cambois also participated in the conspiracy breaking US Federal wire and mail fraud laws. SDK has evidence and this is why PGS uses social media censorship and search engine manipulation instead of the court system.
PGS has bribed its own personnel (this includes Cambois himself) through promotion and other gratuity to remain silent and allow this fraud and harassment of a whistleblower to continue.
PGS has also bribed legal firms Watson Farley & Williams and Landau Law / LZW Law to participate in the confidence fraud through forming illegal non-disclosure agreements to protect corrupt Board of Directors and Management and keep these claims out of the UK courts which governed SDK – PGS contracts.
The entire point of Non-disclosure agreements or contractual Confidentiality terms and conditions is to protect the value and reputation of a Company through prohibiting the publication by former employee’s of content that is disparaging. However, such prohibitions are not allowed for legally protected public disclosure, or whistleblowing.
It is obvious to anyone aware that there is a problem with the four (4) agreements between PGS-SDK. PGS breached the initial agreement and then illegally proffered a termination settlement contract to silence a victim of crimes and whistleblower. These first two (2) agreements are governed by the laws of England. PGS then blackmailed / extorted SDK using threats of criminal prosecution under Thai law where they possessed no legal jurisdiction. PGS misrepresented their legal authority to SDK multiple times.
Following PGS – SDK signing a termination settlement contract 5 December 2013, SDK returned to his US address in Houston, Texas. The termination settlement contract was signed following assurances that PGS would only process true and accurate personal data.
SDK began a job search upon his return to Houston. SDK also attended several Houston Geophysical Society events. During this time and different interviews, SDK sensed something was not right. However, SDK did not take action immediately because as a condition of the agreement, PGS would reimburse for household moving expenses from England to the US. The final reimbursements were paid in June 2014.
The termination settlement contract was not fully executed until all payments due were paid to SDK. In October 2014, SDK made a subject access request for all personal data that PGS processed for SDK. This included the PGS professional personnel file. Late 2014, SDK learned that PGS was processing false and defamatory personal data.
December 22, 2014, PGS threatened legal action against SDK if he did not cease making queries to PGS and the UK Information Commissioner’s Office who oversee Data Protection Act compliance.
On July 3, 2015, SDK published his first legally protected public disclosure on the LinkedIn Pulse platform. On August 24, 2016, SDK filed his first report to UK ActionFraud (police).
PGS Compliance Hotline, which included then PGS General Counsel Rune Olav Pedersen, would not respond to numerous queries. SDK began to publish comments on the PGS LinkedIn comment space. PGS would delete these comments and not process legally protected public disclosure according to policy and law.
PGS never took action on a breach of the contractual Confidentiality terms and conditions because the termination settlement contract was fraudulent / unenforceable. SDK was restricted by LinkedIn because PGS continued to breach their fiduciary duty and not take action on the contract.
Cambois was part of the PGS Executive Management Team through all of this defrauding of the upstream oil and gas industry. Cambois’ silence contributed to the violent abuse of SDK and his family members.
Cambois lacks the character and integrity to be a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, much less be on the SEG Board of Directors. If this publication is disparaging to Cambois or the SEG, then he is contractually obligated to take legal action.
The reason that Cambois does not is because such action would implicate him in a criminal conspiracy. But, that’s SDKs belief/opinion. (SDK has published the same claims since 2015.) Cambois needs to state his side of the story to all SEG members, as SDK has.
