Jakarta – CGG GeoSoftware has donated its entire geoscience software suite to the Geophysical Engineering Department of Universitas Pertamina (UP). The leading global geoscience company donates its software to selected leading universities as part of its global University Donation Program (UDP) to support education and research development in the oil and gas industry.
CGG GeoSoftware’s advanced technology improves E&P project performance and profitability by reducing risk and uncertainty. It helps decision-makers in the oil and gas sector to develop a better understanding of the subsurface, manage exploration and development risks, and maximize the potential of reserves.
UP has received a total of 35 licences for CGG GeoSoftware’s HampsonRussell software and 5 licenses for each of its Jason, InsightEarth, PowerLog, and VelPro solutions. The donation ceremony took place at UP on November 28th, 2018. During the ceremony, Mr. Jimmy Ting, Far East Region Manager, CGG GeoSoftware, delivered a comprehensive lecture on the topic of “Integrated Geoscience Solutions from Exploration to Production” to over 150 UP students.
Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Awali Priyono, Dean of the Faculty of Exploration and Production Technology at UP, said: “This generous software donation will be used for both academic and research purposes. It will be used by our lecturers to support lecture courses, particularly those requiring lab work, as well as by students and lecturers to conduct research projects and publish case study papers. Ultimately, having access to this industry-leading software will help us to prepare our students for the significant contributions they will be called upon to make in the world of business.”
Muhammad Husni Mubarak Lubis, M.S., Head of Geophysical Engineering Department at Universitas Pertamina, said: “The donated CGG software will empower both our students and lecturers to conduct cutting-edge research in the field of reservoir characterization. More specifically, it will help our department to improve its teaching in areas such as machine and deep learning in the geosciences, especially as we are currently building capacity in python programming to support seismic processing and reservoir characterization.”
Kamal Al-Yahya, SVP, GeoSoftware, CGG, said: “We are proud to play our part in geoscience education in Indonesia through this donation. We have been supporting the impressive educational efforts of the Indonesia Brain Gain professional community for some years and are delighted to take this next step and welcome Pertamina University to our global University Donation Program (UDP).”
