A2D's US Collection Passes 3.5M Mark

A2D Technologies has surpassed 3.5 million logs in the US inventory for Log-Line, the company's online database of more than 4.7 million well logs worldwide. The milestone was reached just weeks after the tenth anniversary of Log-Line's industry-first sale of a well log over the Internet.

The 3.5 millionth log to go online is from the OCS-G-22987 Well No.2 S/T-3 located in the Gulf of Mexico Green Canyon Block 680. It was logged on January 2nd, 2005 by Baker Hughes for Kerr McGee Oil and Gas Corporation to a depth of 14,678 feet. As the MMS' official release agent, A2D was able to place this log online immediately once the 26-month release period ended. As with all Gulf of Mexico wells on Log-Line, it is released both as a raw LAS file and in an edited, standardized and corrected Workstation Ready format.

The first log sold over the internet, on December 7th, 1997, was a digital LAS file for Well OCS-G 02051 #3 in East Cameron Block 286. From an initial customer list of less than a dozen, Log-Line has grown over the past decade to surpass over 1,300 current users.

"We are thrilled," commented Russ Whisonant, Director of Sales - US, A2D Technologies. "Though in recent years there have been exciting developments as we have added North Sea, Russian and Nigerian and other West African data to our collection, we haven't lost our focus on having the most comprehensive collection of U.S. well log data available anywhere."

Log-Line Plus!, the most recent iteration of the Log-Line system, is accessed from A2D's website. Using a standard web-browser, users are able to search for specific logs, directional and velocity surveys and other borehole data types using both text and map-based search tools. Data is acquired under a number of flexible models, ranging from unlimited open access plans to individual licensing.
