Abstract

Nowadays, the exploration and production (E&P) of hydrocarbons are becoming more challenging than ever before. This is due to the difficulties involved in the locations and evaluation of offshore oil and gas fields. The development ushered in different innovations in terms of the equipment and software packages that are use for the data acquisition, processing, analysis and retrieval of marine geospatial information. The overall effect of this trend is the massive increase in the volumes of E&P data. The proliferation of data volumes has caused many geologists, geophysicists and drilling engineers to ask themselves two basic questions pertaining to the operations, be it seismic activities, wells (drilling and logging) and others project data: “What do I have?” and “Where is it located?” The tools and technology of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) find its relevance in handling these kinds of “spatial” problems, and it has been particularly important in E&P activities for data collection, organization, synchronization and distribution of all E&P data such as seismic and well-logs data and maps production.
