Smart Data Solutions, part of CGG’s Geoscience division, has opened a new state-of-the-art reservoir fluids and gas sample storage facility in Schulenburg, just west of Houston, Texas. To ensure the integrity of stored sample assets, the purpose-built 60 000 ft3 facility is securely enclosed and video-monitored. It also offers the latest in automated fire protection security and spill containment, all delivered in a cost-effective, state of the art storage solution.

Combined with the existing 23 storage buildings and laboratory, CGG offers oil and gas companies over 4 million ft3 of storage capacity and associated services for long-term, high-volume oil and gas asset sample storage, all under one roof. The facility design prioritises lower storage costs and optimised storage allocation in a variety of controlled conditions (frozen, chilled, A/C and ambient environments), making these facilities an excellent location for E&P companies to locate their entire sample inventories.

Instant data access, online searching, reporting and ordering of samples is enabled by CGG’s PleXus system, an integrated system of record with associated chain of custody tracking.

Kamal Al-Yahya, SVP, Geoscience Software & Smart Data Solutions, CGG, said: “With over forty years of experience in sample management and analysis, CGG understands the true business value of these assets for our clients and their highly specialised needs. Our new world-class Schulenburg storage facility offers clients a complete, cost-effective and convenient solution for all critical true source asset storage.”
