London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) July 26, 2010
Exprodat today announced that Premier Oil (http://www.premier-oil.com) recently purchased Exprodat’s Team-GIS KBridge and Team-GIS Directory extensions to ESRI’s ArcGIS Desktop. Team-GIS KBridge allows users to transfer their KINGDOM well, seismic and interpretation data to ArcMap (and vice versa) while Team-GIS Directory combines an easy-to-use data catalogue with powerful search, preview and metadata visualization tools. Premier Oil has deployed the tools at its London offices and is aiming to make them available globally to geoscientists and geotechnical support staff in support of the company’s oil and gas exploration efforts.
Team-GIS KBridge (http://www.exprodat.com/Software/TGK) allows users to transfer their KINGDOM well, seismic and interpretation data to ArcMap, and vice versa. It is designed to provide a low cost alternative to heavyweight data integration technologies, enabling end-users to take control of data connectivity rather than rely on enterprise level connections. With this streamlined data integration workflow users are able to deploy the powerful spatial analysis capabilities provided by ArcGIS on their KINGDOM project data.
Team-GIS Directory (http://www.exprodat.com/software/TGD) is an ArcMap extension combining an easy-to-use data catalogue with powerful search, preview and metadata visualization tools. It enables spatial data administrators to provide users with consistent, structured and intuitive access to spatial data, while providing users with powerful functionality that makes ArcMap much easier to use by ensuring that users can quickly locate data of interest to them and easily add it to their ArcMap project.
Premier Oil’s Group IS Manager, Dave Edwards, said, “Using Exprodat’s Team-GIS tools makes ArcGIS Desktop easier for our users to use, which means that they can spend more time extracting value from the data by analyzing it within GIS. Team-GIS KBridge provides us with a simple way of integrating SMT KINGDOM data into the ArcGIS environment, while Team-GIS Directory enables our users to quickly and easily find the data they need, minimizing non-productive time.”
Exprodat’s Technical Director, Chris Jepps, said, “We’re delighted that Premier Oil has decided to roll-out Team-GIS KBridge and Team-GIS Directory. When oil and gas companies provide their geotechnical staff with these kind of usability tools it really helps them get the most out of ArcGIS Desktop, which in turn can leverage the often much greater investment they have made purchasing third party datasets.”
Exprodat’s Team-GIS product suite is made up of a number of extensions to ESRI’s ArcGIS Desktop that provide ‘out-of-the-box’ functionality designed specifically for the needs of the petroleum sector. Team-GIS software is data independent and allows E&P companies to integrate vendor data with in-house datasets for use in GIS-based spatial analysis.
ArcGIS is a scalable family of software products comprising a complete geographic information system (GIS) built on industry standards. ArcGIS is used for the creation, management, integration, analysis, display, and dissemination of spatial data. Visualization, editing, and analysis, along with advanced data management, distinguish the ArcGIS software family as the leading GIS software. Much more than a specialized offering for a small niche of specialists, ArcGIS is designed as a scalable system that can be deployed in every organization, from an individual desktop to a globally distributed network of people.
