Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in Oil and Gas

Do the math. How many pieces of paper do you think would fit into ten terabytes? In a typical oil and gas digital transformation project, ten terabytes holds the equivalent of 35,000,000 pieces of paper full of text and images. That’s roughly 16,000 boxes of paper. Add another terabyte of subsurface maps and seismic sections, and that’s an additional 15,000 images and 350 boxes of paper. Just the storage for all of those boxes could […]


Simplifying Data Capture and Data Recovery

There’s hope for “lost” data when you have a data recovery plan. Data recovery services can often restore even the most damaged media. Exploration companies rely on these services, because old, legacy media that stores geophysical data is prone to fail. Whether stiction or skew errors affects tape media, geophysical data is plagued with potential corruption. This problem is compounded as exploration companies continue to generate and collect more seismic data than ever. Without a […]

Big Data Challenges Facing Seismic Data and Exploration Geophysics

Seismic data and exploration geophysics face plenty of big data challenges. In WSJ’s CIO Journal in December 2017 Deloitte analysts wrote that, with many companies doubling their data every two years, short-term, narrowly focused strategies for data storage can quickly become obsolete. New content management architectures and strategies will be needed to accommodate the Big Data explosion. The Holy Grail for today’s companies, Deloitte added, is an enterprise-wide content management strategy to handle increasing volumes […]


Seismic Data Digital Transformation Begins with Tape Transcription

Evaluating legacy media inventory opens a pathway to digitalization of seismic data One of the biggest digital transformation challenges facing the oil and gas exploration and production industry today is the vast amount of different tape media technologies used by E&P and geophysical companies throughout the history of seismic exploration. Seismic data is extremely valuable and rarely ever destroyed. To make this data usable in today’s environment, oil and gas companies often require tape transcription […]
