ONGC Pavilion grabs limelight at GEOIndia 2022

Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) had installed its pavilion during the 3-days event of GEOIndia 2022 in the premise of JECC, Jaipur. The pavilion was installed to showcase the functioning of ONGC and highlight its initiatives taken to boost the energy sector while minimizing the carbon footprints.

The pavilion was inaugurated by Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Hardeep Singh Puri. Among the other petroleum companies, who had set their camps at the event, ONGC’s pavilion grabbed the limelight for its futuristic design, interactive panels and other creative ideas executed at the setup.  Many of the eminent delegates like Prof. Dronamraju Sharma from University of Houston praised the ONGC pavilion for its creativity.

‘Oil and Gas Hunt’, a prototype game, launched by ONGC at its exhibition became the highlight of the event. The philosophy behind designing the game was to make people understand about the fragility, unpredictability and risk involved in an upstream company. The intention was to make people understand the importance of oil and gas so that they may use it wisely. The game has been a very good example of infotainment by an oil and gas industry that not only informs people about the industry but also entertains them by providing an amusing experience.

Another highlight of the exhibition were the virtual reality shows experienced by the visitors at ONGC’s pavilion.  VR sets were installed at the pavilion to let people experience the thrill of deep water where ONGC’s operations are being carried out. Videos of onshore explorations were also played to give a glimpse about the kind of work done by ONGCians to extract of hydrocarbons.

New and Emerging Technologies used in exploration were also at the panel. Exploration is a time and energy consuming task. Through this panel, an idea about the technologies like AI, Remote Sensing and others was highlighted. It helped in familiarizing users about the technologies and innovation used by ONGC to explore new fields of hydrocarbon in less time with maximum gains.

ONGC corporate films were continuously shown on a large digital screen installed at the pavilion of ONGC. There were few more digital screens at the setup showcasing the works related to Corporate Social Responsibility executed by ONGC. Many other initiatives related to CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage) and technological innovations undertaken by ONGC were also displayed in those digital screens.
