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. About TGS TGS provides scientific data and intelligence to companies active in the energy sector. In addition to a global, extensive and diverse energy data library, TGS offers specialized services such as advanced processing and analytics alongside cloud-based data applications and solutions.

Locix and LAPIS Technology Co. to Jointly Develop Wireless LSI-Enabled Cloud Services to Target Key Challenges Faced by Logistics Industry

Locix | December 20, 2021

Locix, a leading Warehouse Spatial Intelligence solution provider, today announced a strategic joint agreement with LAPIS Technology Co., Ltd., a ROHM Semiconductor Group subsidiary, to develop and commercialize wireless LSI-enabled cloud services aimed to address critical challenges in the supply chain and logistics industry. The industry is facing unprecedented levels of demand amid labor shortages, limited logistics real estate, strained transportation systems, and market constraints. According to a survey by Korn Ferry, nearly 100% of respondents from the retail industry said they are having challenges hiring distribution center employees with 40% having “significant challenges” and 57% having “moderate trouble.” Further, a recent report released by Prologis, a global leader in logistics real estate, stated that warehouse space availability has reached 3.9%, an all-time low. To help alleviate these challenges, Locix and LAPIS will collaborate to provide unique WSI solutions, which will improve the overall productivity, efficiency, space, and dock utilization in warehouses. The joint WSI solutions will initially integrate LAPIS’s Low Power Wide Area and ultra-high frequency radio frequency identification LSI with the Locix Cloud. The LPWA-enabled solution will provide a low-cost, reliable, and durable way to send the precise location of trucks en route to warehouses to the Locix Cloud. The truck’s outdoor location data will be integrated with Locix’s indoor positioning system and HD vision system to improve loading dock visibility, efficiency, and utilization while enabling new operational analytics. “We are confident that the combination of our LSI products and Locix’s cloud-based Warehouse Spatial Intelligence solutions will prove to be a simple and cost-effective solution for the modern challenges faced by the industry," Hiroyuki Fukuyama, Director, LAPIS Technology To address urgent market needs that were prompted by the pandemic, LAPIS’s LPWA LSI combined with UHF RFID and LPS system will leverage temperature and location sensor fusion to dial up the efficacy of cold chain monitoring outdoors and indoors, at a lower cost. The solution will improve safety, reduce food waste and lessen pharmaceutical product spoilage – improving overall supply chain resilience. “Locix has led the industry in the commercialization of spatial intelligence solutions,” said Vik Pavate, CEO of Locix. “We are excited to partner with LAPIS Technology, an experienced wireless industry company, in order to expand Warehouse Spatial Intelligence to include new sensor data. These enhancements to spatial intelligence technology will further improve the productivity and efficiency for our customers."
