US multinational corporation in educational tie-up to support drive for future oil and gas professionals in the Sultanate.
Halliburton has announced a multi-million dollar software grant to the Colleges of Science and Engineering at Sultan Qaboos University in Oman. The grant provides access to industry software in geoscience, drilling and reservoir management so that students can gain practical experience to prepare for careers in the oil and gas industry.
The software includes a number of programs related to earth science and petroleum engineering disciplines that provide an opportunity for students to apply scientific and theoretical principles learned in the classroom to real-world scenarios. By incorporating these technologies in their curriculum, students will gain access to programs that help engineers locate, extract and produce oil and gas.
“Halliburton recognises the importance for engineering students to have access to the latest tools to prepare them for successful careers. These software programs are used by companies in Oman and across the world and will give students first-hand knowledge of their use,” said Zeinoun Klink, vice president of Halliburton’s Eastern Gulf Region.
