New option for geoscience data owners seeking data management support
CALGARY (November 8, 2017) – Katalyst Data Management announced today the launch of their seismic and well data management consulting service to support the oil and gas industry in Calgary.
Katalyst has identified a need arising from the current market environment for reliable, professional and vetted data management services to improve a client’s data access, speed and accuracy, ensure compliance and minimize corporate risk. The company now has the capability to deploy onsite consultants to help E&P companies manage their volumes of subsurface data acquired for oil and gas exploration.
“We have noticed a trend over the past two years that actual technical abilities in the industry have declined due to rapid job reductions in the geoscience community,” stated Neil Baker, Vice President of North America for Katalyst. “With this in mind, we now offer these services to help fill the knowledge gap.”
To meet the demand for onsite consulting services, the company recently hired data management expert Sue Carr, previously with Galaxy Data and Information Management Solutions (Galaxy DAIMS), to bring their geoscience data services to oil and gas companies in Calgary.
Katalyst’s consulting services will include project management and data loading, navigational support, metadata management, ownership, corporate governance, assistance with the divestiture process and data management best practices. The data management consultants provided by Katalyst have experience in geoscience applications and working with PPDM, seismic and well data formats.

For over 40 years, Katalyst has been providing complete data management solutions assisting oil and gas companies with the difficult challenge of managing the vast amount of subsurface data and information acquired for exploration and production. Katalyst’s end-to-end solution includes every step in the process, from data capture and verification, to data storage and organization, to marketing seismic data online. Katalyst’s signature offerings include the private cloud iGlass PPDM database for subsurface data management and the ecommerce site SeismicZone.com for online data marketing.
