Fuse, Western Refining, ConocoPhillips on Teradata

Fuse demos seismic on Teradata SRDS. Teradata user conference to highlight oil and gas use cases.

At ECIM, Fuse was showing its XSeis/Streamline seismic data server on a Teradata server providing access to a full trace database. ‘Regular’ SQL provides random access to inline and cross line and (real soon now) horizon slices. This flavor of Streamline leverages Teradata’s spatio-temporal registered data structure SRDS, the subject of a technical presentation at last year’s American Geophysical Union fall meet(www.oilit.com/links/1109_30). The system can also perform trace-based processing and attribute analysis. All of which ‘could be done in Oracle but would lack Teradata’s scalability’ as demonstrated in flagship client eBay’s 40 petabyte system. Fuse have also developed a Petrel plug in for XSeis to stream data from any data source.

Teradata got a vicarious plug in Lars Olav Grovik’s keynote. Grovik bemoaned the current state of play in upstream data and implied that things were ‘better at eBay,’ a large Teradata shop. Other oil and gas Teradata references were unveiled in the agenda (www.oilit.com/links/1109_31) to the Teradata user conference to be held next month in San Diego. Presenters include Western Refining CIO Blake Larsen, Paul Kissell, VP IT at ConocoPhillips’ Eagle Ford/Integrated Operations of the Future unit. Kissel is to discuss the ConocoPhillips and Teradata ‘journey’ to turn data into information that can be used throughout the organization to impact real-time operational decisions.
