Katalyst Opens Its Third Global iGlass Datacenter and Hires New Management

HOUSTON - Wednesday, October 22nd 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Katalyst, the industry’s leading E&P subsurface data management firm, announced today that it has opened its first iGlass datacenter in Europe. Located near London, the UK datacenter marks the company’s third location offering a complete end-to-end solution for subsurface data management. Katalyst also operates iGlass datacenters in Houston, Texas and Calgary, Alberta.

“Adding our comprehensive data management solution in the UK was the goal from day one,” notes President and CEO, Steve Darnell. “From the beginning the strategy was to expand our iGlass and SeismicZone solutions to the European market. Our UK office now has a true end-to-end capacity, being able to handle every step in the data management process, from data capture and conversion to digital storage and management.” In addition to the new datacenter, Katalyst is excited to welcome Angus Craig to its management team as Vice President, EAME, as leader of Katalyst’s UK operations.

Katalyst’s iGlass solution provides a complete set of subsurface data management tools that encompass the full life cycle of E&P companies’ data assets. The solution is built on PPDM 3.8 public data model, incorporating a web-based ESRI GIS map interface for direct access to digital subsurface data. Learn more at
