The Energy industry has a footprint of legacy data – with records that are decades old, in dated formats, and stored in multiple locations. It is challenging to produce what you need in a useable and timely manner, especially if these records are not yet stored in your electronic repositories.
The exploration for oil and gas remains a high priority for the Energy industry. Whether you are assessing opportunities to re-explore existing field assets or developing new ones, the information contained in your core samples, well logs, and seismic data will be instrumental in your efforts to discover new sources.
You deal with new and changing regulations from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the US DOT Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); these organizations all drive pipeline integrity compliance submissions at multiple government levels. Much of your data is poorly indexed – and remains in paper or on old, deteriorating tapes – and isn’t adequately protected.
