TGS and WhiteStar™ announced today a partnership to jointly provide a robust solution combining TGS well data and WhiteStar land grid GIS data, coupled with field and pool data.

WhiteStar provides expert land grid GIS data and software land mapping solutions for the oil and gas industry, forestry, government, and others. This partnership allows for TGS to add WhiteStar products to its data offerings for clients who need access to land grid and cultural data. These insights will be fully integrated into TGS’ mapping applications, R360™ and LONGBOW™, for fast, easy access. Furthermore, WhiteStar will offer TGS’ Validated Well Header and Field & Pool GIS Data through its sales channels for customers who need additional location data to fully utilize the value of WhiteStar products.

Robert White, CEO of WhiteStar Corporation, said, “Customers will greatly benefit from a best-in-breed integration of our highly curated land data and the well-respected TGS field, pool, and validated well header data.”

Katja Akentieva, EVP Onshore and Well Data at TGS, said, “We are excited about our partnership with WhiteStar and believe it will allow our customers greater access to solutions-based land and well data – all in one place. Clients can now expect higher quality, cost-effective data solutions, with access to seamless grid coverage and accurate well locations.”

R360, a unique geoscience data portal, integrates TGS data libraries with existing technologies and applications. It allows customers to readily access the industry’s largest volume of high-integrity global geoscience data, including detailed well statistics and well performance information. In December, a significant user-guided upgrade to the R360 portal will be rolled out, with features including enhanced text and map search functions.
