GEOPIC was established in 1987 at Dehradun with a specific mandate of providing solutions to complex E&P problems by integrating seismic with other geoscientific data. The center has a state-of-the-art infrastructure backed by specialists in the field of seismic data processing, geoscientific data interpretation, and software development, along with a strong team of hardware engineers. It is the largest computing facility of ONGC and one of the few centers worldwide for integrated processing and interpretation of geoscientific data, from seismic to petrophysical, geological, and reservoir engineering. Starting from a processing and interpretation center, the Institute has evolved and been recognized as In-house R&D Institute by DSIR, GoI since 2011. Since its inception, GEOPIC transformed itself into a Centre for Excellence and today is one of the premier institutes of ONGC.
