Paris, France – September 4, 2019
CGG has donated a comprehensive geoscience software and supportive training package to Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM), the oldest and largest university in Mozambique. Its Geology Department was the first in Mozambique to benefit from such a collaboration initiative as part of CGG’s global University Donation Program (UDP) to further improve opportunities for local students to pursue successful careers in petroleum geosciences.
The focus of the donation was to enhance teaching and research in the specific areas of reservoir characterization and petrophysics within UEM’s Petroleum Geology and Petroleum Engineering courses. Not only did CGG donate hardware pre-installed with GeoSoftware’s advanced PowerLog and HampsonRussell geoscience software suites, its experts held mentoring workshops for students, research staff and lecturers to learn more about the theory behind specific techniques, such as AVO, inversion and petrophysics, and test their knowledge with practical exercises before running case studies on the software.
Kamal al-Yahya, Senior Vice President, Software & Smart Data Solutions, CGG, said: “This exciting collaboration with UEM is similar to other initiatives CGG has already conducted in the region with Agostinho Neto University in Angola and the University of Wits in South Africa. It demonstrates our commitment to supporting leading places of learning in training world-class geoscience professionals.”
