KUALA LUMPUR – PETRONAS, through its subsidiary, PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PETRONAS Carigali) has established a new Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI), located at the PETRONAS Twin Towers, as part of its exploration organisation in collaboration with CGG, a fully integrated global geoscience company.
The CAI is a collaborative venture aimed at supporting PETRONAS’ growth strategy in expanding its resource base through exploration.
The CAI is supported with a high-performance computing facility and CGG’s cutting-edge subsurface imaging technologies as part of the venture.
A ceremony to commemorate the venture was held at the PETRONAS Twin Towers on 27 August 2018.
PETRONAS Vice President of Exploration, Emeliana Rice-Oxley, the CEO of CGG, Sophie Zurquiyah, and key personnel from both companies were present at the event.
Speaking at the event, Emeliana said, “Having access to CGG’s latest technology and expertise in high-end seismic and multi-physics imaging, and reservoir characterisation, is in line with PETRONAS’ corporate themes of collaboration, digital, pace and competency; augmenting PETRONAS’ global exploration efforts to expand our resource base through exploration.”
CAI is unique in that it focuses on collaboration in three key areas which are seismic processing, reservoir characterisation and multi-physics imaging.
This provides CAI with the capability to undertake in-house seismic data processing, quantitative seismic interpretation and multi-physics processing at the pace and priority as needed.
Seismic and multi-physics imaging and interpretation capabilities are fundamental to successful exploration strategy and efforts, managing exploration and development risks and maximising the potential of reserves. – Bernama
