Testimonial from Premier Oil:

Amazon Web Services and PreStack Pro

As an international oil and gas operator, having global access to data is critical to our business. However, having data access without the tools and knowledge to take advantage of that data renders it of little value.


By using PreStack Pro software on Amazon Web Service’s SaaS platform, we can transfer knowledge to our regional offices, through training and workshops. Sharp’s AWS solution provides access to High Performance Computing capabilities to process and interpret huge seismic datasets anywhere in the world. As seasoned users of PreStack Pro, we see this cloud-based solution as a key driver for the future success of Premier Oil.

For me, the big benefit of PreStack Pro in the cloud is that we don’t have to maintain an on-premise high performance compute solution, which as a smaller operator is out of the comfort zone of our IT department. This allows our interpreters around the world to have instant access to their full pre-stack datasets on their desktops at the click of a buttonno more calls to the helpdesk. We don’t use PreStack Pro every day, so the reduction in infrastructure overhead and the pay-as-you-go cloud business model gives us a better bang-for-the-buck, with both cost savings and increased performance.
