Taking Data to New Heights: Literally Offshore Acquisition Directly to Cloud

Guy Holmes (Tape Ark)

Description of Presentation: Last year at PPDM Houston, Tape Ark Founder & CEO Guy Holmes presented a live demo of onshore seismic acquisition in the field being recorded & ingested direct to the cloud. During question time and in subsequent discussions, the same comment was made by many – “Let me know when you can do that from a boat”. Well, that time is now upon us. To follow-up the highly successful 2018 presentation, Guy will provide an update on seismic ingest to the cloud including data from offshore seismic vessels using both conventional and very unconventional means. Since April 2018, numerous innovations have occurred that have advanced cloud based DM and processing to new extremes and new heights - literally. These changes, in conjunction with advancements in telecommunications, machine learning, data storage and artificial intelligence have created an environment where just about anything seems possible. To all you naysayers out there – this is your chance to get your questions answered.

Short Biography: Guy C. Holmes has spent 20-years of his Oil and Gas career designing and delivering seismic data management software and services. For the past three years, Guy's been a maverick for change; challenging the status quo to migrate legacy data to the cloud so that cloud-enabled technologies can be applied to foster actionable innovation and drive commercial breakthroughs. Guy has a degree in Physics, an MBA in Technology Management and maintains memberships with PPDM, ASEG, PESA, SEG, and EAGE
