On April 2017, Emerson Automation Solutions has donated the licenses of Roxar RMS and Roxar Tempest to two Indian Prominent Universities. Roxar RMS and Roxar Tempest are basically the company's two engineering software and the Industry's leading Reservoir characterization. In return, the two Universities will have to produce a certain number of technical and academic papers on the two technologies.
Two Prominent Universities get access to engineering Softwares of Emerson Automation Solutions
The two Universities are the Graphic Era University (GEU) which is located in Dehradun and the second university is the Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) which is located in Pune. “It's enormously important to us and the industry that the vital disciplines of geology, geophysics, and reservoir engineering are well embedded with future generations and that they have the latest tools at their disposal,” said Eirik Gudmundsen, Regional Director Asia Pacific at Emerson Automation Solutions.
He continues: Our Emerson Innovation Centre in Pune, where many of our petroleum engineers, geologists, and geophysicists are based, has already recruited a number of outstanding students from these and other Indian universities. This partnership can only help raise performance and innovation throughout the reservoir characterization process. The result will be increased production and a more sustainable and long-term future.”
The Donations are worth Millions of US Dollars!
The donations which were made by Emerson Automation Solutions, have a commercial value of millions of US dollars. The engineering Softwares are a part of Emerson's longstanding commitment to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. The software will particularly help in supporting the next generation of geoscientists throughout India and will be rolled-out to petroleum and reservoir engineer students at both the universities. The announcement follows on from Emerson's recent donation of reservoir management software to Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) in Malaysia.
A partnership can only help in enhancing quality and many other factors such as it will be able to raise performance and innovation throughout the reservoir characterization process. The result will be spectacular as it is going to help in increased production and a more sustainable and long-term future.”
The software donation will enable petroleum engineer students at GEU and MIT to access the latest software modules relating to the seismic interpretation, well log interpretation and correlation, mapping and geomodeling, and grinding, as well as the full range of reservoir engineering and simulation tools within Roxar RMS and Tempest. In addition, Emerson will provide introductory training on the software and is also in the process of putting in place a program where students from each university will take on internships within Emerson.
Headings towards the Bright Future
Graphic Era University (GEU) was established in 1993 and offers up to 40 undergraduate and postgraduate courses in petroleum engineering a key discipline. The Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) was established in 1983 and is today amongst the top engineering colleges in India.
Professor A. K. Awasthi, Advisor at GEU continued: “We want to give our students the very latest reservoir characterization tools to ensure that they can hit the ground running in the commercial marketplace. It is through partnerships, such as with Emerson, that we are achieving this.”
“It's vital to us that our petroleum engineering department replicates as closely as possible the commercial world and current industry standards,” said Dr. Pradeep B. Jadhav, Professor, and Head of Department of Petroleum Engineering at MIT. “We are very grateful to Emerson for enabling this to happen.”
Both RMS and Tempest facilitate the implementation of the Big Loop™ solution that provides the most comprehensive uncertainty assessment and the best-quantified risk management throughout the value chain.
