Uzbekistan to Make Well Log Data Available Online

Uzbekgeofizika of Uzbekistan has entered into a new agreement with TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company ASA to convert the Country's domestic hardcopy well log data assets into digital form. TGS-NOPEC's well log subsidiary, A2D Technologies, will undertake the project. The objective of the project is to create a high quality commercial well log dataset that will ultimately be accessible worldwide via the Internet, which in turn will encourage investments in the development of exploration activities in Uzbekistan.

Under the five-year agreement, a joint A2D and Uzbekgeofizika project team, based in Tashkent, will index and scan the country's hardcopy log assets. Once the indexing and scanning portion of the projects are complete, the logs will be available via LOG-LINE Plus!, A2D's well data search and access portal. A2D's online database also contains well log data from Russia, West Africa, Madagascar, Offshore Northwest Europe, the United States and Canada.
