ProjectDataStor Interpretation Project Capture | Katalyst Data Management

Unleash Your Data's Potential℠

Historical Interpretation Project Capture with ProjectDataStor

Whether your company is divesting or acquiring assets, or your team is undergoing a software transition, the ability to have G&G data at your finger-tips is critical. Interpretation project archives,  seismic and well data can now be managed and accessed in a single map view using the iGlass data management solution. The PPDM Gold Compliant database now supports the unique requirements for managing both geophysical and geological data contained within technical project archives with the new interpretation module ProjectDataStor.


ProjectDataStor provides user-created context and metadata to technical interpretation project backups.

Through ProjectDataStor, users can store and manage their interpreted subsurface analysis within their technical projects, in the same map view as their field and original processed seismic volumes.  A tremendous amount of value can be generated from having this data exposed simultaneously.

User-Created Context for Technical Interpretation Project Back-Ups

The purpose of developing ProjectDataStor within iGlass was to create a solution that provides user-created context and metadata to geological and geophysical interpretation project backups.  This content can be managed and scheduled at user-defined intervals or milestones and retained based on the technical teams’ retention requirements as opposed to IT backup policies.

    • Neutral formats
    • Application formats
  • Well interpretation
  • Well formation tops
  • Petrophysical log evaluation
  • Interpreted maps
    • XYZ grids
    • Horizons

    • Faults
    • Isopach
    • Isochron
    • TOC
  • Volumetric calculations
  • Well and seismic project documents (PPT, DOC, XLS, PDF, TIFF, etc)

Retain Critical Knowledge About Your Technical Projects

As geoscientists manage their interpretation files within ProjectDataStor, they can capture all of the information and context for their technical project data.  Once properly loaded and indexed, users can easily access their interpretation project archives via iGlass’s map interface and have the benefits of disaster recovery support in a hosted environment.

Geoscientists can search the iGlass map for data that meets their criteria as needed in their daily operations and decision-making. The accessibility to view and download all data types within one web-based map portal and GIS interface assists in effective evaluations, asset divestitures and enables geoscientists to:

  • Securely capture complete area datasets
  • Know what key decisions were taken and why
  • Access prior interpretation in original application format
  • Secure disaster recovery for critical active projects
  • Expose old inactive projects without cluttering up the technical environment
  • Bundle project documents (PPT, DOC, XLS, etc.) along with technical project
  • Ability to view “working interpretation” files and retain final work with their projects
