Spectrum Quadruples Seismic Processing Capacity in Egypt

June 11, 2009 at 1:23 am Leave a comment

Spectrum’s Egyptian joint venture, Spectrum-Geopex, has completed the first phase of a significant computer systems upgrade at its seismic data processing center in Nasr City, Cairo, that will quadruple its seismic processing capacity.

The recently completed first phase of its expansion program built upon previous upgrades in 2007 to increase the CPU count at its networked computer center by a further 50%. A second, more significant upgrade scheduled for the second quarter 2009 will increase the computing power at Spectrum-Geopex to a total of 500 CPUs.

Ramy Dia Mahmoud of Spectrum-Geopex commented: “We feel that this is an important step for Spectrum-Geopex. With this upgrade we can both support Spectrum’s worldwide seismic data processing program and offer local fast-turnaround services for oil exploration customers in the Middle East.”

Spectrum-Geopex is also the latest location to upgrade to Globe Claritas software as part of Spectrum Group’s worldwide adoption program. Claritas improves the range of processing techniques offered to the Group’s growing portfolio of international clients, as well as improving efficiency and turnaround.

This software upgrade provides Spectrum-Geopex geophysicists with enhanced seismic processing tools and the latest processing algorithms. Seismic data can be more easily analyzed by the in-house geotechnical team as well as customer geoscientists using highly interactive visualization. The powerful platform and specially developed software features also improve the Quality Control (QC) that can be offered to seismic data processing customers.

Completion of the current upgrade program will enable Spectrum-Geopex to provide the same extensive range of 3D seismic data processing and seismic imaging services as the other centers in the Spectrum Group.
