Chairman and MD Bikash Chandra Bora inaugurated the ONGC’s new processing center at Dehradun, Northern India this month.
The center, built under contract by Paradigm Geophysical at a cost of $ 10 million deploys Paradigm’s software running on hardware components from Silicon Graphics and IBM. Bora said “We are privileged to have witnessed a milestone in the history of ONGC.
The installation of the SGI Origin 2000, with processing, interpretation, and reservoir characterization software from Paradigm Geophysical marks a new chapter in the continuing saga of seismic data analysis.”
ONGC scientists have already identified a new prospect in one of its existing fields using the new installation. A first target for the new software will be improving the sub-surface imagery of problem data in the hilly terrain of Asam and Tripura.
