Greg Stephens - Landmark ESSA Region Commercialisation Manager - Landmark Software and Services (Halliburton)

Effectively manage the explosion in data that is happening within your company

Talk Description.
Co-presented with Alessandra Lattarulo, Technical Sales Consultant, Landmark

The need to effectively manage the increasing volume and type of data and efficiently deliver it to the end user is a continuing challenge for data managers.

At the heart of Landmark’s DecisionSpace solution and the foundation for efficient decision making is the industry’s most trusted project data management technology, OpenWorks.

OpenWorks provides true multi-user data management thereby enabling your teams to work collaboratively - not in isolation.

The next generation R5000 version of OpenWorks is a technology leap forward, ensuring the most accurate data has been used for interpretations and analysis. Sharing data across a team reduces the total cost of ownership and eliminates the data management burden on the individual interpreter
Greg Stephens has 33 years industry experience beginning with seismic acquisition and processing before focusing on sales, marketing and business development spanning the E&P spectrum since 1989. Greg has been with Landmark for seventeen years and currently manages the Landmark technical pre-sales team covering the Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa region.

By contrast Alessandra has just two months within Landmark and joins the team as a geoscience pre-sales technical consultant. Prior to joining Landmark Alessandra has worked with oil operators providing geoscience onsite support while at another E&P software provider

Tony Klapcia - Business Development Manager, International - Perigon

Implementing intelligent data management

Talk Description.
With E&P activity still running at high levels and data volumes hitting ever larger numbers, the need to improve decision making is more critical than ever.

Eurotech has responded to demands within Upstream oil & gas by working to see if there is a solution that allows the creation of a coherent data management platform which provides:

• Intelligent and Active Archive for seismic data
• Totally transparent access to data
• Flexible Work Flow for G&G
• Protected and Secure data
• Compliance
• Instant retrieval of any project or data set

We believe these requirements can be met and, furthermore, the solution is simple and flexible to deploy with options for implementing as a solution or as a service. In addition, we realise that it can take time to consider a strategic data management platform so there is an option to provide a simple “ready to go” solution that offers basic and cost effective Active Archive but which can be integrated into the advanced strategic solution at a later stage.

Tony has worked in the IT industry for over 30 years in a variety of technical, business and management roles for some of the World’s leading technology innovators and Global services organisations.
At Eurotech he is tasked with looking at how advances in IT technology can be exploited and developed to help companies working in the Digital Oilfield arena get more benefits from new technology but retaining strict cost control.
Our objective is to use technology to allow better use and management of seismic data and to create solutions that allow not just faster processing of data but how to integrate it into a formal cross-boundary information structure to improve business decision making processes.
