Searcher Seismic has entered into a partnership agreement with the Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) on the use of GeoClerk, its underground geographic imagery search engine. GeoClerk enables geoscientists and engineers to discover geological information from a rich mosaic of data libraries and technical archives. In line with the growing list of collaborations already in place, the IPA offers a single database for GeoClerk users.
The IPA was founded 50 years ago and holds an annual convention to meet the needs and market the development of the upstream oil and gas industry in Indonesia. As the oldest event for the upstream oil and gas industry in Indonesia, IPA Convex is recognized by the industry as the official and best channel to support Indonesian exploration activities.
Proceedings of the IPA convention, technical symposia and other special publications across Indonesia and its basins, dating back to 1972, will now be accessible via GeoClerk. The extensive IPA Document Archive represents a significant technical library comprising over 4,700 documents and will be accessible to all GeoClerk users.
“Searcher is very pleased to expand its partnerships with GeoClerk and continually expand its geoscience database. We look forward to working with the IPA and providing our GeoClerk users with a unique exploration search engine to discover subsurface information in our growing library of data sources. This saves GeoClerk users significant search time and ensures that they find information relevant to their search criteria,” said Alan Hopping, vice president of operations for Searcher.
“API is keen to make its publications available to a wider global audience and sees this partnership as a way to achieve that goal. These publications provide an invaluable resource on the geology of Indonesia and oil and gas exploration and production in the country,” the IPA added.
The Petroleum and Mining editions of GeoClerk are available by subscription, with both versions offering database modules relevant to industry and government.
