Oil and gas companies moving towards big data analytics are missing a critical dataset in their analytic data pool by keeping information locked up inside paper logs and well files. Katalyst Data Management has the capacity to scan volumes of well logs and associated files that are created during the life cycle of a well into an accessible PPDM database.
Scanning well files from “paper to digits” is the first step in Katalyst Data Management’s initiative to create a complete electronic well file to enable analysis of the data. The electronic well file contains data that is already in digital format, such as LAS, DLIS and other well logs, XLS spreadsheets and other digital data, along with the “paper to digits” data that has been scanned.
Digital and paper data are packaged into an electronic well file and stored in Katalyst’s cloud-based storage solution iGlass, a PPDM 3.8 database for subsurface data. Once the well file is in iGlass, clients can view and download their well data files and metadata alongside their seismic data volumes from a single GIS map portal. The data management software includes tools that are specific to the life cycle of seismic, well and interpretation data types.
