BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
Local research and consultancy firm Dimension Strata wants to develop more research on Brunei’s geological features to help oil and gas expeditors extract their raw materials better.
Managing Director Mohd Reduan Hj Mohd Yusof said such research could help these companies understand the complex geological structures and utilise them to increase their extraction capacities.
“But such field has yet to be fully explored as of now, and building it up here in Brunei requires us to understand the hi-tech mechanisms involved in it,” he said.
Dimension Strata recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an Italian training firm Serintel to further improve its technical knowledge and professional capabilities for this purpose.
The partnership allows the firm a chance to learn the proper procedures in conducting geological research – and to promote them to the public.
“We are looking to demonstrate hands-on knowledge in this discipline, hoping that it could attract more researches to study this field,” he said.
“We also want to promote this as a new professional discipline in the oil and gas industry, whose job market is currently limited only to certain fields,”
“At the same time, we want to build the pool of researchers from which we can pull from to develop this new discipline,” he added.
Dimension Strata is a training and consultancy firm formed in 2017. It provides technical and professional training for oil and gas companies.
It services also includes consultations and research, particularly on interpreting seismic data and remodeling the structure of oil and gas reservoirs.
