A better way to handle data

Oil and Gas Icon

Subsurface and seismic data management is the key to smarter decision-making in the oil & gas industry.

A huge volume of O&G seismic reflection information collected during the past 100 years is contained in old media and unusable formats. Fortunately, Ovation can make it readable, accessible, and usable. We will liberate the data in old tapes, and transcribe and migrate it into the latest SEG-Y format for analysis. We can vectorize your seismic data for use in new exploration software, and we can reformat well data to read trends. We can digitize your x-ray images to feed AI models, migrate your media files to take advantage of the newest remastering techniques, and more. We can also provide systems and processes for easy and secure access, enabling you to extract greater data value for increased revenue.

How we help

Ovation experts help energy companies maximize the value of enormous data sets generated by hydrocarbon exploration. We convert valuable data assets from locked media into a ready-to-run resource.

Our partners

Ovation Data partners with carefully selected solutions providers, software companies and consultants to enhance the Ovation Data customer experience. Data management, risk management, data curation and data protection have many highly specialized aspects and we work with selected partners to help enable an ever increasing array of solutions for our customers.

The amount of data in the world is exponentially increasing due to the introduction of high-definition 4K / 8K video, advancement in IoT / ICT, and the proliferation of Big Data analysis. As the world's top manufacturer of magnetic tapes for data storage, Fujifilm continues to develop top quality and high performance tape media.


Ovation Data has been working with David Morrison and his team at Talus for many years. Their Exploration Archives software product allows exploration and production companies to have a robust and simple method for managing their seismic data.


The integration of NthDS revolutionary platform, Nspect, with Ovation’s network delivers the first end-to-end management of well log data that includes AI transcription. It is the first commercially available service that uses artificial intelligence to digitize well logs six times more quickly than with legacy software.


GeoComputing and its RiVA platform form an integral part of Ovation’s offering. RiVA is a high-performance computing platform that has embedded storage with a shared parallel file system. Workstation performance is dramatically improved compared with standard systems.

Ovation Data is delighted to partner with SpectraLogic to help the British Film Institute preserve the UK’s audio-visual treasures for future generations to enjoy. This project reflects the technology and expertise behind digital transformation within many industries today.
