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.

R&D Project with ONGC on Pore Pressure Prediction using Seismic Velocities & Reverse Time Migration

The project was collaboratively carried out by GERMI and ONGC for developing SIES-P3. It’s first of its kind software developed for predicting pore pressure , using seismic velocity.

The aim of developing the software is to help ONGC in saving foreign expense of purchasing and renewal of software which provide similar technology.
