Home > Press > A*STAR's IIME collaborates with petroleum Geo-Services on MEMS sensor for oil and gas applications

Abstract:
A*STAR's Institute of Microelectronics has signed an agreement to collaborate with Petroleum Geo-Services (OSE:PGS), a focused geophysical company headquartered in Oslo, Norway, to develop a high performance Micro-Electromechanical Systems (MEMS) based sensor for deep sea seismic oil and gas exploration. The MEMS sensor is targeted for incorporation into a PGS commercial streamer system to acquire more precise seismic data during seismic survey to locate and estimate the size of offshore oil and gas reserves.

A*STAR's IIME collaborates with petroleum Geo-Services on MEMS sensor for oil and gas applications

Singapore | Posted on February 3rd, 2013

The collaboration leverages IME's rich experience in designing high performance MEMS sensor, MEMS process platform and in-house packaging capability, and PGS's expertise in seismic exploration. The project will demonstrate a MEMS sensor and provide guidelines for the packaging and integration with ASIC in the next phase.

"Collaborating with an industry leader provides an opportunity for us to further our research in sensing technology for oil and gas applications," said Prof. Dim-Lee Kwong, Executive Director, IME. "IME's integrated capabilities and deep understanding of different sensing technologies in MEMS will enhance our partner's technology development capabilities and shorten the product development time."

"Our earlier partnership in developing sensing technologies has given me the confidence that our partnership will be yet another success. With IME's core competencies and our core technologies, we believe our collaboration will enable us to speed up the development and commercialisation of our product," said Rune Tenghamn, Vice President, Innovation and Business Development, Data Processing Technology, PGS.
