The software will be used to teach quantitative seismic interpretation within the Exploration Geophysics module of the Department’s Master of Petroleum Geoscience programme. It will also be used by undergraduates for final-year projects as well as MSc and PhD postgraduate students and lecturers for conducting and publishing high-quality research focusing on reservoir characterisation and quantitative interpretation for exploration and exploitation of reserves.
UM’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research & Innovation), Professor Dr. Noorsaadah Abd. Rahman, said: “The donation will be of great benefit to students, particularly those doing their postgraduate research (PhD & MSc) and students in the Master of Petroleum Geoscience Program. Undergraduate students in Geology doing their final-year project will also benefit from this software. We would like to thank CGG GeoSoftware for this contribution to our University and hope that the relationship between CGG and UM will continue to grow and strengthen with time.”
Kamal al-Yahya, Senior Vice President, Software & Smart Data Solutions, CGG, said: “UM’s Department of Geology is an excellent fit with our University Donation Program (UDP) which supports dynamic centres of geoscience excellence around the world. It not only houses the Geological Society of Malaysia and the Institute Geology Malaysia, it is also extremely well connected to the region’s petroleum, mining and engineering industries and other leading universities. As a hub for sharing geological knowledge it is an ideal base for CGG to support the development of the next generation of Malaysia’s geoscience community.”
University of Malaya staff, students and alumni joined representatives from CGG GeoSoftware at the recent software donation ceremony held in CGG’s Kuala Lumpur office (image courtesy of CGG GeoSoftware).
