Exprodat Increases Oil & Gas Workflow Integration with Updated Data Assistant

Exprodat, the oil and gas ArcGIS platform specialist, Esri Gold Partner and Getech group company, has released the latest version of its popular Data Assistant software, which simplfies and speeds up the process of importing and exporting common exploration data, to and from Esri’s ArcGIS platform.

Data Assistant v222 is now compatible with ArcGIS Desktop 10.4 and 10.4.1 which means those people working with the latest Esri software versions will be able to benefit from easily importing crucial information from Petrel, IHS Kingdom, SeisWorks, OpenWorks and a host of other exploration and production software.

Specific new data formats that are supported in Data Assistant v222 include un-gridded interpretation XYZ points from SeisWorks, KINGDOM, IESX and Charisma. These points will be gridded on import and hence can then be closely interrogated using the powerful Spatial Analyst tools.

Focal mechanisms, which are nicknamed “beach-balls” due to the round, patterned symbols used to display them, can be used to describe what kind of an earthquake has taken place in an area of interest.

The pattern the ‘beach-ball’ and its orientation shows that either a strike-slip, thrust or normal event has occurred. Data Assistant v222 now supports the display of these extremely helpful symbols and so creating maps that show a huge amount of tectonic information about an area is now simple and quick to do.

Exprodat’s Technical Director Chris Jepps explains more about how the latest version of the Data Assistant software can bring real benefits to exploration workflows; “With the latest release of Data Assistant we’ve added support for a number of new data types including importing data from SEG-Y, SPS seismic navigation and a host of interpretation line formats. We’ve also provided the ability to view focal mechanism beach-ball symbols within ArcMap. These additional features make Data Assistant even more useful in helping petroleum organisations view and analyse common E&P interpretation system data using Esri’s ArcGIS platform.”
