Exprodat, the Getech Group company and Esri Gold Partner, is supporting the Illinois State Geological Survey by providing access to its Data Assistant software for integrating geoscience interpretation systems with ArcGIS.
The agreement will help ensure that researchers at the Illinois State Geological Survey will have access to software that is widely used and relied upon within the oil and gas exploration industry.
The latest version of Data Assistant enables the Illinois State Geological Survey to quickly and easily import data into ArcGIS from popular subsurface interpretation systems such as Petrel, KINGDOM, CPS3 and Landmark for use in geoscience research projects.
Chris Jepps, Chief Operating Officer at Exprodat and the Getech Group, explains why the company decided to support the University; “We continue to work closely with universities and geological surveys across the world as we like to give something back to the scientific and academic communities. Through this relationship we aim to help the team at the Illinois State Geological Survey achieve their research goals by better integrating their subsurface interpretation system data for spatial analysis within ArcGIS.”
Nathan Webb, Associate Research Scientist at the Illinois State Geological Survey, added “The Exprodat Data Assistant software streamlines my reservoir characterization research in the Illinois Basin. I can quickly and easily take my subsurface correlation work and bring it into ArcGIS for finish mapping for presentations and publications. Also, our workflow hinges on collaboration between geologists, modelers, and reservoir engineers and their respective software and the Data Assistant is a great help in the collaboration process. We appreciate Exprodat’s support of our research.”
