Lynx Information Systems Ltd (www.lynxinfo.co.uk) announces the commercial release of its web-portal and database management system, the Lynx Resource Portal (LRP). This commercial offer is based on the online UK Onshore Geophysical Library interface (www.ukogl.org.uk), which Lynx has designed, built and delivered, in conjunction with operating the Library since 1994. The Library is widely acclaimed as instrumental in reviving UK Onshore Exploration and making petroleum exploration data visible across the internet in real time. It allows geologists to visualise seismic data (and the contextual cultural and geological data), and to make a rapid selection of digital (SEG-Y) sections to purchase from the Library.
The robust technology – which has been developed over a period of 10 years – is based on Oracle and ArcGIS Server software, which are in general use in the industry. The performance of the web portal – using any common web-browser – is exceptional.
Lynx believes that this solution is ideal for National Oil Companies wishing to launch exploration licensing rounds. The system can either be installed in-country on the NOC servers or on secure web-servers operated from Lynx’s offices in London and Houston. All the appropriate data – seismic, well and block data – plus background geology, documentation on licensing conditions, Petroleum Laws and Contracts – can be hosted and served to validated users in real time.
Lynx’s long experience in managing digital and hard-copy data is also available to assist NOCs in attracting new companies to explore.
