OceanGeo Receives Ocean Bottom Seismic Contract Award

HOUSTON and RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OceanGeo B.V., a geophysical company specializing in multicomponent ocean bottom seismic acquisition, today announced that it has been awarded a contract for a 510 square kilometer ocean bottom 3D seismic survey in the Gulf of Paria offshore Trinidad for Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (Petrotrin).  Acquisition of the survey began in late December 2013 and is expected to be complete in April or May 2014.

Jamaludin Khan, Petrotrin's Vice President Exploration and Production, commented, "The Gulf of Paria has produced in excess of 1.5 billion barrels of oil since 1955 and still has significant hydrocarbon producing potential. Meeting Petrotrin's five-year strategic challenge of reserves replacement and increased production requires a new and superior quality seismic data set in the Gulf of Paria.  A best-in-class ocean bottom seismic 3D survey provided by OceanGeo will provide the wide azimuth data we need to identify deeper Cretaceous plays and bypassed opportunities adjacent to existing reservoirs."

Colin Hulme, OceanGeo's Chief Executive Officer, added, "We are extremely pleased to announce this award.  While we have a new name and ownership, we have a proven track record of successfully acquiring ocean bottom seismic data, safely and efficiently, with over five years of operation offshore Brazil, delivering superior reservoir understanding for our E&P clients.  We are now pleased to put that expertise to work for Petrotrin.  Ocean bottom seismic continues to rapidly grow and gain market share from towed streamer by meeting oil and gas companies' requirements for higher quality seismic data to better develop and manage their reservoirs.  With the full support of our parent companies ION and Georadar, we are well positioned to compete and thrive in the growing ocean bottom seismic market, and we are truly excited about the future of OceanGeo."

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
