Gulf Canada and Kelman rewarded (October 1999)

Gulf Canada’s seven terabyte seismic data store has won it, and supplier Kelman the IT Excellence Award

Gulf Canada and Kelman received the prestigious Canadian IT Excellence (ITX) award in Toronto last month. The award was made for Gulf Canada’s 7 terabyte seismic library - which is replicated at Gulf Canada and Kelman’s offices. Prior to the new on-line archive, Gulf Canada’s seismic data was indexed in seven different databases and spread across a wide range of legacy media in five warehouses. Now, robotic servers and fiber optics allow Gulf Canada personnel round-the-clock access to clean and reliable data. The pervasiveness of IT, and the demonstrable gain in productivity were key factors in the award.
