On-demand Global Seismic Data

As machine learning becomes commonplace in the oil and gas industry the need for organised data with known provenance and usage rights has never been greater. The majority of currently available seismic data is fraught with challenges, from legacy file formats and inconsistent metadata to dynamic range problems. To address this issue, Searcher Seismic have recently launched Saismic™, a cloud-based service that provides global seismic data on-demand with native support for deep learning and advanced analytics. This transformative product offers the E&P industry an innovative and smarter way to interact with seismic data on the premise that it should be adaptive, flexible and compatible with today’s big-data tools.

Saismic initially started out as a project to improve Searcher’s internal data management and to streamline the delivery of seismic data, but seeing the potential, it developed rapidly to a platform that holds millions of kilometres of 2D and hundreds of thousands of square kilometres of 3D seismic. This global library of data has been deconstructed from the rigid flat file format traditionally associated with seismic and transformed into a distributed, scalable, big data store, allowing for rapid access, complex queries and efficient use of compute power.
