On 2nd July 2021, a delegation of our chapter had the chance to visit the OMV Innovation & Technology Center in Gänserndorf, Lower Austria.
Taking up the invitation from our SPE mother section, Vienna Basin Section, the day started after a kind welcoming with the annual meeting, gaining an outlook for the upcoming 2021/22 term.
Up next was a guided tour in the newly opened Innovation & Technology Center. Since August 2020, the ITC has been illustrating the state of art in the upstream sector by modern audio-visual systems. Various exhibits and models are demonstrating reservoir exploration, drilling scenarios, sucker rod pump functionality and innovative production concepts. The highlight of the tour was the 7-metre high cylindric 360 degrees screen presenting a mesmerizing cinematic film about OMV’s operations in Austria and all over the world.
