Sinopec Inaugurates Key Geophysical Laboratory

The inauguration ceremony for Sinopec’s Key Geophysical Laboratory was held at the Sinopec Geophysical Research Institute on November 26. The laboratory marks a new stage of development in Sinopec’s basic research in geophysics.

The laboratory will carry out in-depth research and development in high-precision imaging and detailed reservoir description in complex surfaces, structures and reservoirs in key areas for oil and gas exploration in China, based on seismic wave propagation, petroleum geology and multidisciplinary study. It will also seek to achieve breakthroughs in key technologies such as seismic acquisition, seismic imaging, reservoir prediction and stratified fluid identification under complicated conditions, so as to provide strong technical support for Sinopec's upstream development strategy.
