China Geoscience Training and Recruitment Center

Baker Hughes has a strong reputation for data accuracy in its core business of wireline well-logging services. Baker Hughes partnered with China's oldest petroleum university, Yangtze University in Jingzhou, to address the worldwide shortage of qualified log analysts. In 2006, we implemented the Baker Atlas China Geoscience Training and Recruiting Center (CGTRC), a log interpretation training facility operated by Yangtze University. Baker Hughes contributes the interpretation software used in CGTRC's eXpress computer laboratory, as well as supports a Yangtze faculty member to teach the course. As a result of overwhelming enrollment in its first years, we increased the number of licenses for software use to accommodate increased student demand.
