Can’t-miss Houston energy event: UH-DGH Center for Hydrocarbon Exploration Symposium
The University of Houston is hosting a morning full of thought leadership and networking in partnership with the Directorate General Hydrocarbon (DGH), the technical arm of the Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, to showcase the new UH Seismic Data Center.
When: Friday, July 7, from 9 am to noon.

The UH Seismic Data Center, which was announced earlier this year, was established via a five-year agreement between UH and DGH. The center aims to generate reliable information on the energy industry — including seismic, well, reservoir and production data.
“This MoU is essentially an agreement to spur collaboration and combine the strengths of the involved parties for greater good,” Ramanan Krishnamoorti, vice president of energy and innovation at UH, said in a February news release announcing the partnership. “UH is in Houston, the Energy Capital of the World and the DGH has this wonderful wealth of information in its National Data Repository.
"By working together, we will maximize the potential of this important data and it will serve as an excellent research foundation,” he continued.
