TGS Announces New Extensive Regional 2D-cubed Reprocessing Project in Indonesia

TGS | January 10, 2022

TGS, a global provider of energy data and intelligence, announced a project designed to help drive exploration across the South Makassar and North East Java regions. Processing has begun on the East Java Sea 2D-cubed project. This project will utilize 2D-cubed technology to integrate all existing seismic data across a 270,000 square kilometer area to create a one-stop tool for regional evaluation.

The dataset will combine over 120,000 kilometers of 2D seismic data from over 80 legacy surveys into a single exploration tool and create a well data package comprising 88 wells. The final multi-client product, supported by Ditjen Migas, Pusdatin ESDM, SKK Migas and Pertamina, will be unrivaled in its coverage. A single conformable seismic volume will allow customers to develop structural and geological models in their pre-study evaluation process.

This project covers significant acreage in the 2nd 2021 Indonesian License round, including the Agung-I and Agung-II blocks. Early project deliverables are expected from Q2 2022.

2D-cubed is a unique technology from TGS that generates a 3D seismic volume from a set of 2D lines. It uses an advanced structurally conformable interpolation algorithm to maximize the potential of existing 2D multi-vintage and 3D data. The resultant volume can be used for both regional interpretation and the optimization of subsequent 3D and 2D survey designs. TGS has undertaken similar large-scale projects in other Asia Pacific basins in places such as Timor-Leste and Australia to industry acclaim. This technology has also been applied offshore Sakhalin, Russia, and throughout the Norwegian and UK North Seas.

 "TGS is committed to developing multi-client seismic projects that help drive exploration in Indonesia. This regional product will enable exploration companies to efficiently assess hydrocarbon prospectivity and initiate studies on vast volumes of data in unprecedented timeframes."

Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS

This project is supported by industry funding.

Compass UOL and Furious Technologies announce partnership to provide data-driven pricing solutions

Compass UOL | December 24, 2021

Compass UOL, a global digital transformation company, and Furious Technologies, a North American revenue management and pricing optimization solutions provider, announced a strategic collaboration to provide online sellers in Latin America and USA with an integrated digital commerce solution. The partnership will combine advanced cloud-based data science and Compass UOL's digital next-generation platforms services portfolio with Furious Technologies' artificial intelligence models for data-driven pricing. It will enable organizations to innovate, make better data-driven decisions, solve business challenges, and increase business value. The objective is to seize insights and use data generated by customer digital interactions to help sellers optimize price and increase average value per customer by dynamically recommending relevant products and purchase incentives. Data-driven pricing, revenue management and higher margins While typical IT departments deal with an overload of demands and daily problems, which makes it difficult to meet business's innovation and expansion goals, Compass UOL and Furious Technologies believe that end-to-end customer journeys must be created in the cloud and optimized to ensure continuous growth. According to Alexis Rockenbach, CEO at Compass UOL, many companies are burdened by the need to increasingly use data to drive business decisions, solve supply chain issues and deal with the increasing material costs. As a result, they lack time and attention to customer touchpoints, or to sales and marketing overall.

Combining diverse US-based business teams, companies will be able to drive significant business development acceleration, having the potential to serve hundreds of B2B and B2C sellers in Latin America and the United States in the short term, and expand to other regions in the future.

CORRECTING and REPLACING Cequence and Tetrate Partner to Embed Security into Cloud Native Applications

Cequence Security | January 28, 2022

Cequence Security, the industry leader in API security, announced a partnership with Tetrate, an enterprise service mesh company and Gartner 2021 Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing, to bake API discovery and security into modern cloud-native microservices applications. This new integration will extend the single pane of glass offered by Tetrate to include the discovery of APIs, detection of security risks and threats, and native inline protection against threats using the Cequence API Security Platform. This will give API development and SecOps teams centralized discovery, management and continuous monitoring of their multi-cluster, multi-cloud microservices deployments. "End-to-end API security is very critical for customers. Envoy as the policy enforcement point enables decentralized enforcement of security policies in a consistent way for both external and internal application traffic. The integration between Tetrate and Cequence brings together for customers API discovery, risk analysis and bot detection with strong authentication and authorization of traffic." Varun Talwar, CEO and Co-Founder of Tetrate Service mesh plays a critical role in incorporating zero-trust design and DevSecOps principles by adding security and reliability to connect microservices across infrastructures without any additional code. Discovering all the API endpoints exposed by microservices and securing them is difficult due to the rapid pace of development and inherently distributed nature of these applications. This can lead to applications being published for external usage without sufficient discovery, security or monitoring for security and operations teams. Tetrate and Cequence Security’s integration reduces the time and complexity in adding discovery, security and monitoring to cloud-native applications and enables security that can scale with the application using the same underlying orchestration layer. “Service mesh architecture is getting very popular with enterprise customers. We’re excited to partner with many of the founding engineers for the Istio service mesh because they best understand the security challenges in these environments,” said Larry Link, President and CEO of Cequence Security. “Cequence has a long history of meeting the application security needs of organizations by using leading edge technologies like containers and service meshes, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Tetrate to take that commitment to the next level.” About Cequence Security Organizations trust Cequence Security to protect their APIs and web applications with the most effective and adaptive defense against online fraud, business logic attacks, exploits and unintended data leakage; which enables them to remain resilient in today’s ever-changing business and threat landscape. Cequence is the only API Security Platform offering that unifies API discovery, inventory tracking, risk analysis and remediation with proven, real-time threat protection against ever evolving online attacks. About Tetrate Started by Istio founders to reimagine application networking, Tetrate is an enterprise service mesh company managing the complexity of modern, hybrid cloud application infrastructure. Its flagship product, Tetrate Service Bridge, provides an edge-to-workload application connectivity platform to deliver business continuity, agility, and security for enterprises on the journey from traditional monoliths to the cloud. Customers get consistent, baked-in observability, runtime security and traffic management in any environment. Tetrate remains a top contributor to the open-source projects Istio and Envoy Proxy.
