OpenSpirit adds generic PPDM server

The new 2.8 release of E&P middleware extends data footprint and adds data store connectors.

E&P middleware provider OpenSpirit has released a new version of its application and data integration solution. OpenSpirit V2.8 adds support for non-seismic grids and 2D seismic interpretation, more robust data moving and synchronization functionality via the CopySync utility, and enhanced GIS integration through the Scan utility and ArcGIS extension. New, user-requested data store connections are also included.


OpenSpirit president Dan Piette said, ‘Version 2.8 adds support for two new data types and four new data stores. We have more applications that we are supporting and more companies are using our product. OpenSpirit is the only platform-independent, standards-based and vendor-neutral integration solution for upstream data on the market.’

End users

End users can now read, write, update and delete non-seismic mapping grids in OpenSpirit-enabled applications and associated viewers. Enhanced GIS integration automates the creation of a spatial catalog of sub-surface data, including non-seismic horizon grids, which can then be viewed in GIS applications. Non-seismic grids and 2D interpretation are also accessible through the OpenSpirit Developer’s Kit, allowing upstream application developers to access these data types and speed the development of their applications.


Five new data store connectors are currently under test for a generic PPDM database, GeoPlus Petra, ESRI SDE culture data, SMT’s Kingdom and Recall. In 2004, OpenSpirit reported over 120 oil company users and 1,000 licenses.
