LAGOS, Nigeria -- TGS-NOPEC Geophysical (TGS) and West African Geophysical Seisdata (WAGSCO) have opened a secure dedicated facility for data storage, tape copying, and seismic processing.

Located in Lagos' Lekki Peninsula area, the operation will serve the needs of nearby state and private sectors in oil and gas exploration, the companies say.

In addition to standard storage and tape copying tasks, the facility offers data recovery from older media formats, data viewing workstations, and high-speed communication facilities for online data inquiry and retrieval.

The data center is networked to TGS Imaging's processing nodes in Houston, USA and Bedford, England, and is able to perform duplication and integrity checks, data transcription, sub-volume extraction, data split/merges, and pre-stack work.
