SMT Enhances Geoscience Applications with Strategic Alliance

Seismic-Micro Technology (SMT) and OpenSpirit® announced today that the two companies will provide clients the ability to more easily share data between geoscience applications. SMT will leverage the full power of the OpenSpirit v3.x interoperability framework in an upcoming release of its KINGDOM software. The next-generation SMT KINGDOM™ Application Adapter will allow interpreters to work in the user-friendly Windows® environment while sharing data with any OpenSpirit-enabled application or data repository.

Commenting on the announcement, Randy Harvey, Vice President of Development, SMT, said, "Large organizations face the reality of supporting multiple geoscience applications that don't always play well together. By working with OpenSpirit, SMT will help customers integrate their geoscience applications, data stores, and GIS systems. This means geophysical and geological professionals can work in their application of choice and have it remain accessible by the entire asset team."

This new relationship will improve the capabilities in both software products, making geoscience collaboration easier. Customers will be able to move data easily between KINGDOM, the leader in Windows-based interpretation, and other OpenSpirit-enabled geoscience applications, regardless of their operating system. Supported applications include Halliburton's (HAL) Landmark OpenWorks® software and Schlumberger's (SLB) GeoFrame® and Petrel® software.

"Over the years, SMT has made good use of OpenSpirit as a complement to KINGDOM software," said Dan Piette, President & CEO of OpenSpirit. "We are excited about the growth of this strategic relationship, their support of our new technologies, and the enterprise decision to leverage OpenSpirit as part of their data management and interoperability strategy."

Looking to the future, SMT and OpenSpirit will continue working together to improve data connectivity, scalability and performance for customers.

Seismic Micro-Technology, the market leader for Windows-based geoscientific interpretation, helps organizations find oil and gas faster. The company's KINGDOM software allows geoscientists to focus on the analysis, not on managing the tools. SMT software enables intuitive interpretation, modeling, analysis and data management, in one integrated executable.
