Research & Development

GERMI has established two research wings- Petroleum and Renewable Energy. The Petroleum Wing has two major groups.

Petroleum Laboratories whose capabilities are in Petrographic studies, Rock Physics and Geochemical Studies and the Data Interpretation Centre with Capabilities on G&G data analysis, Seismic Data enhancement & characterization. The Renewable Research Wing supports fundamental and applied research ranging from solar cell material and device designs to plant performance analysis. As well in the environmental research focusing to help industries in important areas related to science, technology and management pertaining to Pollution, Energy Efficiency, Bio-Energy & Waste to Energy and enable the integration of innovative need-based technologies.

The objective of this wing is to serve as a centre for excellence in research and development of increasingly efficient and well adopted technologies to extract, upgrade, manage and commercialize the oil and gas resources. The R & D involves geophysical and geological data interpretation. The center provides a unique environment that incubates multidisciplinary collaborations among GERMI scientists for developing and exploring new technologies for understanding of hydrocarbon plays.
