Digitize the World Tour:
Powered by Katalyst
Welcome to Katalyst’s Digitize the World Tour page. For months, we’ve discussed the value of digital transformation for E&P companies. Now, we’re bringing this message on a global tour. We’re presenting and exhibiting at the industries’ biggest trade shows and conferences. At each event, we’ll show how companies transition from the start of digital transformation to the end value. If you miss the conference, check this page for show summaries and takeaways.

The energy industry can no longer afford to delay cloud adoption. Oil and Gas technology has seen tremendous advancement over the past 20 years, which has resulted in accelerating increases in production and operational efficiency. But when it comes to digital technologies, the industry lags behind. Why? The capital-intensive operations found in the upstream sector don’t lend well to the trial-and-error approach typically used with new digital technologies. With an unpredictable oil price, operators are […]
Seismic data quality means having the solid foundation of a complete reliable dataset in your subsurface database, an ongoing quest for oil and gas companies. How can you stand behind your projects and investments if you’re not certain that they’re built upon quality seismic and well data? Oil and gas companies with assets in multiple countries around the world manage many petabytes of seismic and well data. If there are data quality issues, it can […]
The volume of new subsurface data that is being acquired and made available is rapidly increasing. Meanwhile large digital transformation projects are also unlocking legacy data.
