Estate Sale of World-Renowned Geologist/Scientist Dr. George V. Chilingar

Dr. Chilingar traveled the world finding petroleum (oil) for different countries. He has a home full of gifts received from every country leader and many awards from universities as well as international and national institutions.

Please read the plaque below to show you a little of his genius and character.

Dr. George V. Chilingar - Strong Petro-Scholar

Kings, presidents, prime ministers and some of the developing world's more colorful rulers have paid homage to USC petroleum engineer George V. Chilingar. Arab princes and the late Shah of Iran have lavished him with gifts of ceremonial swords, 300-year-old Russian iconography and museum-quality tapestries. In Iran, there's an oil field named for him. The common element in Chilingar's celebrity is light sweet crude and an ingenious method of identifying the rock formations wherein it lies. The Russian-born engineer grew up in Iran, son of the Shah's personal physician. Educated in America (he earned bachelor's, master's and Ph.D. degrees all from USC), Chilingar came up with a way to find oil-rich rock by analyzing the ratio of calcium to magnesium in core samples; it led to the discovery of one of Iran's largest oil fields. In Thailand, where land drilling efforts came up dry, Chilingar spotted natural gas bubbles in the Gulf of Siam and redirected exploratory efforts offshore, boosting that nascent oil industry. Next up for the geo-sleuth: earthquake prediction based on the migration of subterranean gases.
