University of Namibia
On 29 November 2011, Schlumberger launched a collaboration initiative with the Geology Department of the University of Namibia, the National Petroleum Corporation of Namibia (NAMCOR), and the Ministry of Mines and Energy. The first phase of the collaboration, which is focused on supporting the accelerated development of Namibian E&P skills, included the donation of Petrel and PetroMod software, lecturer training and software support. This will be implemented over the next three months, and then NAMCOR will augment the initiative through the provision of petroleum data, potential postgraduate projects, student guidance and supervision. Attendees at a launch event included the Dean of the Faculty of Science and representatives from Arcadia Petroleum and Chariot Oil and Gas.
