Accelerated processing thanks to new cloud-based computing
HOUSTON, TEXAS 31 July 2018 —Fairfield Geotechnologies proudly announces that it has been awarded two significant processing projects in core areas. The first project, scheduled for November, 2018 delivery, is 67 OCS blocks of reverse time migration in the Gulf of Mexico. The second is a 552-square-mile pre-stack depth migration in the Delaware Basin that includes the merging of existing data with new acquisition, slated for final completion in March, 2019.
Since the company has moved to cloud-based computing, it anticipates a significant reduction in project turnaround time. Tom Scoulios, SVP of Geosciences and Chief Technology Officer of Fairfield Geotechnologies expects computational speeds five times faster than what could be achieved with on-premises computing, “Our initial move to cloud computing was very encouraging,” he said. “And we have yet to approach the limits of cloud scalability for these complex imaging projects.”
“The transition to cloud computing represents our commitment to delivering the most cost-effective and reduced time-to-market data processing solutions to our clients,” said Charles (Chuck) Davison, President and CEO of Fairfield Geotechnologies."
Privately held Fairfield Geotechnologies, a pioneer and global leader in ocean bottom seismic nodal technology, designs and manufactures a complete range of revolutionary, true cable-free ZLand®and ZMarine®systems and offers expert marine acquisition and data processing services.
