Representatives of three South Korean companies, namely OCEANUS, KITECH and KOGAS, met officials of the Research Institute of Petroleum Industry and expressed optimism to start research and technological cooperation with the institute.

A KITECH’s representative told Shana that the companies are focused on technology development and solving technological problems. He stressed that the South Korean delegation has come to Iran to become familiar with RIPI’s achievements and implement a joint project with the Iranian scientific center.

“The institute’s workforce abilities and facilities are remarkable and I hope we can establish bilateral cooperation in future,” he said. Moreover, sales director of a French geoscience cervices company CGG also visited the institute and said, “CGG is determined to increase technological collaboration with RIPI.”

Daniel Vanhulle noted that the company intends to invest in Iran’s oil and gas industry and the removal of sanctions has paved the way for more cooperation. He stressed that the company’s officials attended specialized sessions held by the institute.  

CGG is a French-based geophysical services company founded in 1931. It is a fully integrated geoscience company providing leading geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities to its broad base of customers primarily from the global oil and gas industry.
