Dolphin Acquires Seismic Processing Software Company - 23/04/2012

Dolphin Group’s subsidiary Dolphin Geophysical Inc. (US) has purchased the entire stock of Open Geophysical Inc. (OGI). OGI develops and sells seismic processing software and has an existing client base including both major oil companies and seismic contractors. It provides users with an efficient, cost-effective and easy-to-use seismic processing platform.

The newly developed software is already being used on the Polar Duchess for real-time quality control of acquired data with impressive performance and in Dolphin's new processing centre established in London, UK.

All Dolphin vessels will be upgraded to the OGI software over the coming months. It will be used for on-board fast track, proprietary processing on the Duchess in the near future and to produce a high-end, fast track product on all future multi-client projects.

R. Gareth Williams, chief geophysicist of Dolphin said, "This a major step towards developing our processing and multi-client services and hence capturing the full value chain in those businesses. All the available software platforms have been reviewed and this is a rare opportunity to work with a system designed completely in the 21st century. In addition, the company sees significant opportunities to support and grow the existing software sales business of OGI and is fully committed to supporting its current customers."
