iStore announces PetroTrek on Microsoft SharePoint Server

The Information Store has ported its upstream asset management solution to .NET and Visual Earth.

The Information Store (iStore) has announced availability of its PetroTrek asset management solution on Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007. A Microsoft Virtual Earth GIS front end is also available. Launched in 1997, PetroTrek is used by BP, Chevron, PEMEX and Shell.


Steve Fortune, IM director, for BP’s Gulf of Mexico unit said, ‘Products like PetroTrek are important to our operations and integral to our Field of the Future Program. SharePoint Server allows our teams to collaborate more effectively on managing our production assets. There are also potential cost savings from leveraging our existing information technology investments and infrastructure.’

Web services

PetroTrek lets users access, visualize and control data, enabling more effective use of information. The web services infrastructure lets asset teams combine information from multiple data sources into customizable web pages. The .NET-based solution can accesses data anywhere on the network, embedding role-based data security. PetroTrek presents information in familiar form as well logs, production charts, directional surveys and maps.


iStore president and CEO Barry Irani added, ‘Our goal is to help users deploy leading-edge technology to achieve higher levels of efficiency. By migrating PetroTrek to SharePoint Server and Virtual Earth, our customers can derive even more value throughout the enterprise.’
