SpectrumData-AccessIM JV wins Woodside data contract

A joint venture between Western Australian companies SpectrumData and Access Information Management has won a three-year multi-million dollar contract to manage and store Woodside Energy's petroleum exploration data assets.
The contract involves AccessIM consolidating data from more than 180,000 tapes and a large volume of paper records, which will then be catalogued and fully indexed by SpectrumData to a seismic data catalogue. Woodside can then gain online access to the data 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
SpectrumData CEO Guy Holmes, who was named as a WA Business News 40under40 Awards winner last week, said he believed the skills of SpectrumData and AccessIM enabled the two companies to win the contract over larger data storage competitors.
"It was apparent early in the tender process that Woodside was looking to employ a specialist in seismic data management rather than just a storage contractor," Mr Holmes said.
"SpectrumData's experience and skills in seismic data management was a huge advantage as we were able to offer value-added processes that our competitors would not have even considered.
"Winning the Woodside contract with AccessIM is a huge achievement for SpectrumData as it is a cornerstone project for our future growth in Australia and overseas."

Following an extensive verification, auditing and backup process, the media will be stored in two purpose built data storage vaults constructed by SpectrumData.

The state-of-the-art vaults will incorporate the latest in data storage technology including VESDA smoke detection, gas flooding
fire extinguishing system and thermal motion detector.
Fibre links from the storage vaults to SpectrumData and AccessIM will potentially provide rapid electronic data transfer to Woodside upon request.
The Woodside contract also involves a large scale data migration project, where large volumes of seismic data will be catalogued, transcribed and converted to industry standard formats such as SEGY.

This data will then be prepared for long-term storage on high density media for future exploration projects or government submissions.
