Halliburton has acquired TGS-Nopec unit A2D Technologies’ SmartSection software. SmartSection pioneered the use of depth-calibrated well log images for high volume well log correlation. The acquisition was made by Halliburton’s Digital and Consulting Solutions (DCS) unit. DCS VP Jon Lewis said, ‘SmartSection will expand GeoGraphix’ correlation and subsurface interpretation capabilities. Customers analyzing large data volumes will be able to quickly identify unconformities and other structural relationships.’
A2D president Dave Kotowych added, ‘By transferring our SmartSection software business to Halliburton, A2D extends access to its data without the concern that we are developing competing interpretive products. The software will also benefit from Halliburton’s development environment and market reach.’ Smart Section is used by some 50 major and large independent oil and gas companies worldwide. Last year, Landmark linked its software with A2D’s SilverWire log delivery system. (OITJ Vol 9 N°3).
