The independent, cloud-based ecosystem will offer a single search point clients, allowing them to interactively locate, visualize, and download their subsurface assets and entitlements in one place.
Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO of CGG, said: “The industry historically lacked an ecosystem that provided a vendor neutral single point of access to the industry’s commercial data.
“This new ecosystem is platform agnostic, which will enable clients to access multi-client seismic and geologic data, when and where they need it.”
A beta version is due to be release during 1Q 2021, which will allow clients that own data to review the technology and provide feedback.
Other commercial data suppliers will also be given the opportunity to potentially join the collaborative approach.
A full launch of the ecosystem should follow in the second half of next year.
The three companies plan to expand the scope in future to include additional features, vendors, and data types.
