CGG : CGG Completes Delivery of Norway's Diskos Data Management Solution

PARIS, Aug. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CGG announced today that its E&P data management solution for the seismic, well and production modules in the Diskos database, Norway's National Data Repository, is now in production and accessible to all members of the Diskos group.

The Diskos implementation of CGG's AkonTM data management solution for national data repositories offers users new features and tools for an easier, faster and more intuitive data management experience for exploring the more than one petabyte of rich and high-quality data assets shared in their mature Norwegian shelf database.

The Diskos Akon solution is a more integrated and cost-effective answer to securely storing and distributing a larger volume of data than was possible with the previous system. Based on an open database model (PPDM), the solution is hosted in the environmentally friendly and secure Green Mountain data center operated by Evry and its user interface for data submission, browsing, selection and request is based on the WhereoilTM software platform designed by Kadme.

After being awarded the Diskos data management contract in December 2013, CGG's Data Management Services (DMS) team spent 2014 implementing its Akon solution in Norway and migrating all the data from the three different modules from a proprietary to a PPDM public, integrated and open logical data model. The project was conducted under the guidance and control of the Diskos committee representatives and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD).

A new CGG DMS team is now established in Norway to operate the Diskos Akon solution and support the Diskos group's E&P data management activities.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: "The challenges and opportunities associated with data management continue to grow in parallel with the data volumes themselves, and Akon is attracting strong recognition as an effective solution to address industry needs. We look forward to continuing to advance our data management capabilities well into the future to best support Diskos, and the larger global oil and gas community."
