DataReSource Begins Assembling PNG focussed Data Sets 6 Oct 2014

DataReSource has recently added over 200 Papua New Guinea seismic surveys including support and navigation data to its data asset list. The ever increasing oil and gas data library created by DataReSource now has over 500,000 data sets including this new PNG data. The addition of these PNG data sets is the beginning of a renewed focus in the PNG area for DataReSource who sees activity increasing in the region.

“For the last three to six months our DataReSource team has been very focussed on accumulating knowledge and data from Papua New Guinea,” stated Zane Prickett, Managing Director of DataReSource.

“It is an area that is very active for exploration, and has a widely dispersed collection of data in dire need of consolidation. The DataReSource collection is not always hard data, but in some cases is simply a link to known owners of the data, resellers, government bodies, other operators etc. The game plan was always to consolidate as much data as possible, and where getting the hard data was not possible, to create a network of data sources to assist in locating data for clients. PNG data is a perfect fit for that model as the data is widely dispersed among operators and ex-operators.”

In the past two months DataReSource has located numerous data sets in PNG that previously clients thought were lost. The data sets that have been of most interest have been far and away seismic data and their respective navigation, although well logs and other materials are also in demand.

DataReSource is also working on the reprocessing of a very old offshore seismic survey in PNG and results of that work are expected to be available within the next few months. In addition, work in the Philippines and Myanmar continue to be high on the priority list.
