Preserving Legacy Seismic & Well Data: A Key to Future Exploration Success

This material was presented by Adam Pring at the PPDM Data Management Symposium in Perth, Australia

Golden key and green cloud keyholeAs we have progressed from the early days of seismic data utilization, there has been an exponential explosion in the number of channels/receivers used in seismic surveys.  There has also been a similar explosion in the quantum of data recorded in these surveys, from multiple gigabytes to terabytes to petabytes.  The conundrum is how will this ever-increasing volume of data be managed in context by professionals who understand the data, so that its’ quality is not compromised and the value that it continues to add to exploration continue to grow and be everlasting.
