On 5th May 2015, the Group leader chaired the Seminar on “Understanding the challenges to Vietnam in Exploring, Drilling and Producing Oil in basement rocks and lessons learned from Bach Ho field” presented by PVEP, PVD and VSP. At the seminar, PetroVietnam shared the experience to detect oil structure in granite basement rocks in Bach Ho and other oil fields of Vietnam with the technical experts from many countries around the world. This science and technology achievement has not only changed the traditional oil and gas perspective but also had decisive significance to the oil and gas exploration and production on the continental shelf of Vietnam. It has provided scientific and practical contribution to the world’s petroleum science as well as promoted the international cooperation between PetroVietnam and foreign companies for the oil and gas exploration in basement rocks in some other countries.

During the time in Houston, PetroVietnam working group came to meet and work with such major partners of the United States as ExxonMobil, Murphy Oil, Halliburton, GE, Schlumberger… to promote the cooperation projects between the parties and give orientation for strengthening the future cooperation.
