HOUSTONION Geophysical Corp. has expanded its seismic data processing network through the opening of a new GX Technology (GXT) center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and has also upgraded the company's Houston computing hub with its move to a new facility that increases throughput capacity by 50%.

The Oklahoma City team is trained to use GXT's land processing technologies, including 3D anisotropic time and depth processing, well-based processing, and the application of multi-component seismic techniques, to more accurately characterize fractures and lithology variations in unconventional reservoirs.

In Houston, ION says the opening of GXT's new internal-Cloud computing hub, which services the company's processing centers worldwide, increases the company's capacity by more than 50%, including total peak performance, CPUs, and storage.
