BLUWARE TELEPORT

Seismic Data Transfer Technology

What if you could receive your seismic survey data every 24 hours, continuously, instead of waiting months or arranging for expensive transportation?

‚Äč

Process seismic survey data earlier and reduce overall exploration time.

In order to reduce exploration time and enable rapid decision making, seismic companies are increasingly required to deliver processed and imaged data to clients quicker. Any error in the data acquisition step can result in a significant impact to the overall cost and duration of the survey with a potential impact of millions of dollars. Network limitation and the sheer size of seismic surveys mean that seismic data is transferred using physical media, resulting in long delays and costly logistics.

Bluware TELEPORT™ provides the ability to transfer seismic data while preserving signal quality, particularly seismic amplitude, and packages compressed files for cost-effective and speedy transmission via satellite.

DELIVER SEISMIC DATA

TO CUSTOMERS EARLIER

Bluware TELEPORT significantly reduces non-productive time by eliminating physical transportation, simplifying logistics. 

IMPROVE CONTROL

OF SURVEY ACQUISITION

Bluware TELEPORT provides quicker access to processed data giving seismic acquisition companies the confidence in the accuracy of the data being acquired and the ability to adjust the acquisition process much earlier.

REALIZE COST SAVINGS COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL

ACQUISITION PROCESSES

Transmitting compressed data using Bluware VDS via satellite mitigates the costs associated with physically shipping the data, particularly when the data needs to be expedited to make critical business decisions.

SUCCESS STORIES

PRESERVATION

OF THE SEISMIC DATA SIGNAL

Conventional compression methods cause degradation in data quality, which makes it unusable in imaging and processing workflows. Oil and gas companies spend millions to acquire high-resolution seismic data so they can preserve the intricate subsurface details. Bluware’s proprietary compression technology which has been developed by industry experts for more than 18 years, preserves signal quality while compressing the data. The compressed data is small enough to be transferred via low bandwidth connections yet remains usable within processing workflows. 

If you are currently waiting on seismic data to load and it takes longer than one minute, you’re losing efficiency.

Many companies have tried to solve this problem by increasing their hardware capacity. However, additional hardware means you need more physical space to support the servers and it requires regular maintenance, licenses, and support personnel. Unfortunately, you only receive marginal uplift in bandwidth.

We enable unrestricted access to seismic data that will ultimately improve speed. 

If you are uploading or downloading data to or from a repository or the cloud, speed is a roadblock on account of the file construct of a SEG-Y dataset and the architecture of the applications reading the data. The technology used in Bluware TELEPORT compresses and converts a SEG-Y file into Bluware Virtual Data Storage (VDS) that can be transferred and loaded quickly.

TRANSFER SEISMIC DATA

TO CLOUD REPOSITORIES

If you’ve begun transferring your geophysical data sets to the cloud, you’ve probably encountered the biggest roadblock. Although the cloud offers tremendous flexibility and significant computational gains, the cost of storing seismic data quickly outweighs the advantages. With Bluware you can move your seismic data to the cloud cost effectively. 

Mike Mellen, Executive Vice President at Spectrum

"Bluware TELEPORT enabled us to transmit raw seismic data from a vessel in the South Atlantic to our data center in Houston daily via satellite. We were able to fast track process the data overnight and have pre-stack time migrated images in hand weeks earlier. This provided us with the information necessary to adjust the program during acquisition. It also reduced the waiting period for our customers who are trying to make investment decisions based on the newly acquired data."
