In 2004, we established GERMI. We set up GERMI initially to help develop the talent pool for the oil and gas sector and to conduct research and training for petroleum engineers. GERMI now also assists in devising techno-economically feasible solutions for various problems we encounter in our exploration, drilling, production and transportation operations. GERMI is organised as a registered society and trust with the Principal Secretary–Energy & Petrochemicals Department, Government of Gujarat and our managing director being the ex-officio trustees. We have provided approximately 89.6% of its funding as on date, although equipment, services and pledges of future financial donations have been provided by other oil and gas companies.
