PGS started the process of imaging seismic data in the Cloud in 2019 and ran its first commercial processing job in 2020. Cloud compute offers access to almost unlimited virtual-CPU capacity and the latest technology. With a platform that fully utilizes these benefits, PGS will have flexible and cost-efficient compute capacity to image advanced seismic measurements, with reduced capital expenditures and without capacity bottlenecks. During 2021, PGS has run several imaging jobs in the Cloud with great success.
Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence
Analysis of subsurface information and metadata using machine learning and artificial intelligence is about accelerating turnaround for PGS and its clients through automation of mundane tasks. The PGS Imaging team has carried out a proof-of-concept to identify patterns in historical processing flows that can minimize testing and accelerate data delivery. Going forward, PGS will increasingly focus on the digital transformation processes to execute on the Company’s strategy.
