Katalyst Data Management Partners with IHS Markit to Add AccuMap Data

Katalyst Data management announced that they have entered into a commercial agreement with IHS Markit to display seismic data from AccuMap on Katalyst’s SeismicZone.com website.

This partnership will bring over 60 years’ worth of seismic data available for license to the public website. SeismicZone.com visitors have access to over 4.7 million linear kilometres of 2D and 440,000 square kilometres of 3D data, together with important parameter information to help select the reight data for purchase.

Registered users of SeismicZone.com will see the newly exposed 2D and 3D data that will be available for instant quality inspection. Rather than having to wait for an individual to provide the information, the e-brokerage website provides a more timely method for potential purchasers and licensees of seismic data to view and quality inspect data online.

The quality inspection tools that is available on SeismicZone.com will enable AccuMap users to have access of the SeismicZone e-brokerage directly within the AccuMap platform and will have automatic access. The two globally recognised service providers for subsurface data feel their solutions complement each other to more cost effectively and efficiently bring seismic data to the resale marketplace.

Katalyst President and CEO Steve Darnell said “We could not be more excited about this opportunity to partner with a globally recognized service provider like IHS Markit. The AccuMap seismic data has tremendous potential in today’s market when historical data is being utilized more frequently. As a data management company seeking more timely and cost-effective ways to make proprietary seismic data available for license, this partnership is win-win.”
