ABERDEEN, UK -- Halliburton has signed a strategic partnership agreement with the University of Aberdeen.

Under the memorandum of understanding, the organizations will collaborate on research and to provide students with skills to meet the oil and gas sector’s future demands.

Coincidentally, Halliburton has agreed to donate equipment valued at $312,000 for creation of a new 3D visualization suite at the university. The company has also promised nearly $47,000 over three years in support of scholarships.

The visualization suite, to be named The Halliburton Room, will be in the university’s Meston Building on its King’s College Campus, and will open later this year. It will be designed to enhance research by enabling geoscientists to examine and map the internal structure of the earth’s crust, to improve their understanding of its evolution, and to study techniques for oil and gas exploration.
