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.

Surface geochemical prospecting for hydrocarbon exploration in parts of Cambay basin

The project aims to establish surface geochemical prospects as a guide for exploring the part of Cambay basin. This will help in identifying the hydrocarbon wealth of the basin.

Project involves quantification of adsorbed light gaseous hydrocarbons in the soil samples. Determination of source of hydrocarbons based upon stable carbon isotopic studies. Microbial techniques to confirm the hydrocarbon seeps. Establishing surface geochemical prospects as guides to hydrocarbon wealth
