Abstrakt

The Vietnam Petroleum Institute (VPI) and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) have developed co-operation within geo-scientific research and institutional capacity building since 1995. Two projects have focused on the hydrocarbon potential of the Cenozoic Song Hong basin. The co-operation is continuing within the frame of a new, long-term project, started in 2001, with the aim of enhancement of research capacity (ENRECA) within basin analysis and modelling in Vietnam. The first phase of the project is directed towards the Phu Khanh
basin off shore central Vietnam. The second phase is focused on the Malay - Tho Chu and Phu Quoc basins in the Southwestern continental shelf of Vietnam. The third phase, directed to the Northern part of Song Hong basin and onshore Hanoi trough, is at the preparation stage. Many fruitful results of the co-operation are proving beneficial to our twinning institutions in terms of scientific research, technology transfer, advanced training and post-graduate
education.

The origin and the petroleum potential of the Song Hong, Phu Khanh, Malay - Tho Chu and the Phu Quoc basins have been assessed by the group of Vietnamese and Danish geoscientists and new models are proposed. A technology transfer, project integrated with the geo-scientifi c projects, has provided VPI with modern facilities for interactive interpretation of geophysical and geological data. Extensive training of Vietnamese geo-scientists in system management, seismic and logging data interpretation, geochemical modelling, basin modelling and paleontological
interpretation has been carried out via in-house training at VPI and “On-the-job-training” programs at GEUS. The facilities and their great potential for advanced and eff ective interpretation have been demonstrated to a broad audience through a number of workshops. Co-operation between VPI and GEUS has signifi cantly enhanced the human resources of VPI; four VPI project members have received their master certifi cation and four VPI geoscientists achieved their doctoral certifi cation during implementation of cooperative research projects.
