The US Minerals Management Service has awarded A2D Technologies an exclusive multi-year digital well log data processing contract. A2D, a subsidiary of TGS-Nopec Geophysical Co. will act as MMS' official contractor for several aspects of well log data management, including processing and hosting of proprietary and public well log data assets. A2D will work directly with companies operating in the US Outer Continental Shelf to collect and distribute complete, defect-free processed well log data to the public.
Under terms of the contract, A2D will process digital vector log data to MMS standard well-bore data specifications. The MMS will also have access to A2D's workstation ready well log data for internal resource evaluation purposes.
According to Dave Kotowych, A2D President, "The MMS contract is a strategic win as it will generate revenues for our services business as well as reduce the acquisition costs for adding OCS logs to the company's online well log data collection. The solution designed for the MMS will be attractive to other corporate and governmental organizations worldwide."
