Standards in Seismic Data – What’s the Point
Jill Lewis, CEO; Troika International, UK

The SEG has made an enormous effort over recent years to provide the industry with updated formats. SEG-D_3.1 and SEG-Y_2 have been created to cope with modern technologies and ensure that all the necessary meta-data can be recorded with the data. As an industry we struggle with the difficulty in automatically reading, using, and indexing our data, yet all the hard work has been done. All the industry needs to do is implement these formats. This presentation will address the issue of what more can be done to stop oil companies and major contractors from using ancient formats that were created for nine track tape in the early 1970’s.
