Tullow to Use Landmark Software, Solutions and Support

Landmark Graphics Corporation reports that Tullow Oil has chosen to adopt Landmark's suite of geological and geophysical software products and support services. As a result of the contract, Tullow will be using Landmark's geological, geophysical, reservoir simulation and drilling applications for all of its operations. Approximately 10 international projects will be converted initially from a legacy system to Landmark's OpenWorks platform. Landmark will provide technical support, training and consulting services.

"Through this contract, Landmark will be able to support Tullow's objectives of data interpretation and integration, workflow management and ultimately technical risk reduction," said Andy Lane, president and CEO of Landmark. "This shift to Landmark will provide industry-leading services for Tullow's operations while adding value through technology innovation and a thorough understanding of their corporate objectives and commitment to excellence."

Under the terms of the contract, Landmark will provide a complete suite of integrated software tools and services based on a network-centric infrastructure for Tullow. This contract is intended to enable their staff to utilize state-of-the-art integrated applications for rapid response and quick, accurate decision making. This highly flexible agreement supports Tullow's UKCS projects in London as well as international operations based in Dublin, Ireland. Landmark's GeoGraphix products are included in the software solution as well as Landmark's traditional Unix-based applications enabling Tullow to support Microsoft Windows ™ users and mobile computing environments.

"Tullow is pleased to make this change, which represents a significant step forward in implementing its objectives of deploying state-of-the-art technology as an integral part of upstream operations," said Gerry Sheehan, exploration manager.
