Seequent, the developer of dedicated 3D modelling solution Leapfrog Geothermal, has been appointed as the exclusive global re-seller of iPoint for geothermal, a tried and tested set of tools tailored specifically for the geothermal industry to address the long-time challenges of data storage, management and security. Graham Grant, COO of Seequent, said, “Our partnership with Perigon is a great way to help our geothermal customers take control over the way their data is managed and used, to better manage risk and make important exploration and operational investment decisions that add to the top and bottom-line.”
iPoint enables direct access to clean, standardized data for geothermal assets in a single environment. Users can store and visualize the complete range of geothermal data, including geochemical, geological, production and geophysical, in ‘one home’ for all subsurface data. This allows users to quickly find the ‘best set’ of information available to them.
First developed for the oil and gas industry, iPoint’s ability to store disparate data types along with images and documents, combined with strong well correlation capabilities made the solution the undisputed leader of complete wellbore data management. iPoint for geothermal was developed in collaboration with key industry leaders and has already been tested with some major geothermal companies in New Zealand and Iceland including, Mercury Energy, Contact Energy and ISOR.
Ian Richardson, Mercury’s Geothermal Projects and Research Manager, said, “We have been trialling iPoint to help solve the key challenge with our geoscience data, which is having a centralized, version-controlled database that can be accessed and used by anyone on a particular project. iPoint has enabled us to do this successfully in a trial, and we look forward to continuing to work with Seequent and Perigon.”
Jeremy O’Brien, Seequent’s Business Manager for Geothermal Energy, concluded, “This partnership highlights Seequent's commitment to bringing a suite of products to the market to help geothermal companies in understanding and managing the subsurface.”
