New Delhi: Global hydrocarbons major Shell is scaling up its research center in Bangalore to bring it on par with its two other centers of excellence in the US and Netherlands, a company officials said.

"We will grow to 500 people by this year end and will be covering all technical aspects. The Shell Technology Institute will be a virtual reality center," Bob Frith, president of Shell Technologies, said here.

The center, which opened in September, currently has 200 employees.

"We also intend to develop it into a global research center. We will grow to 1,000 full time employees in three years," Firth told reporters on the margins of the Petrotech 2007 exposition.

"This center is to be staffed by 90 percent Indians and the state-of-the-art research center will be a virtual reality center which will undertake modeling of reservoirs for exploration."

The Shell official said that its India center would undertake international assignments and that the first project was on its way.
