KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 3 2018 : Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, a unit of Petronas, has established a new Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) as part of its exploration organisation in collaboration with CGG, a fully integrated global geoscience company.
The CAI, located at the Petronas Twin Towers, is a collaborative venture aimed at supporting Petronas’ growth strategy in expanding its resource base through exploration.
“It is supported with a high-performance computing facility and CGG’s cutting-edge subsurface imaging technologies as part of the venture,” the national oil company said in a statement today.
CAI is unique in that it focuses on collaboration in three key areas , namely seismic processing, reservoir characterisation and multi-physics imaging.
This provides it 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,” Petronas said. – Bernama
