Lynx - subsurface database system for national oil companies
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Lynx Information Systems Ltd of the UK has released a subsurface database management system for national oil companies.
It can provide seismic, well and block data, background geology information, documentation on licensing conditions, petroleum laws and contracts.
Lynx originally developed the system for the UK government.
Lynx has operated the UK Onshore Geophysical Library, designed to make petroleum exploration data available on the internet, since 1994.
"The Library is widely acclaimed as instrumental in reviving UK Onshore Exploration," Lynx claims.
Geologists can use the UK library to view seismic data and geological data, and choose which sections of SEG-Y seismic data they want to purchase.
The technology is based on Oracle and ArcGIS Server software.
The system could be used by national oil companies launching exploration licensing rounds, so they can provide exploration data to interested companies.
The data can either be installed on the national oil company servers or on Lynx servers.
