With technological advancements such as horizontal drilling in shale plays increasing the demand for seismic data, Katalyst is pleased to announce the launch of a revolutionary new model for licensing seismic data. SeismicZone is a transaction-based e-commerce website that gives exploration stakeholders access to current seismic data available across North America, stored digitally in secure infrastructure.
Transactions at the speed of innovation
As opposed to the traditional model for licensing seismic data, SeismicZone expedites the process by allowing geoscientists to view available seismic data 24/7 and select areas of quality-checked data to license, all with the simplicity of a map interface. As a result, both downtime and delays are eliminated as users enjoy volumes of quality-controlled data with corresponding metadata in a convenient, open online environment.
A Win-Win Situation for Buyers and Sellers
As the premier e-commerce site, SeismicZone brings a host of benefits to buyers and sellers alike. As Steve Darnell, President of Katalyst, explains, “The E&P industry is experiencing tremendous growth, necessitating new and more effective ways of accessing available seismic data. We’re excited to offer this new convenient method of licensing data for industry geoscientists while providing our data management clients the opportunity to create more value from their existing seismic assets. SeismicZone is a dynamic site with new data added on a continuous basis, which can make each visit a new experience."
