DUG onboard processing contract with Polarcus extended to include DUG McCloud.

We are pleased to announce the signing of a three-year contract with Polarcus to utilise hardware and software for data processing and seismic acquisition quality control (QC) onboard Polarcus’ fleet of seismic vessels.

We will provide workstations, storage, processing nodes, and software onboard Polarcus vessels. This marks the sixth year of Polarcus’ commitment to our technology for the provision of data processing and QC services. Further, Polarcus also signed a three-year agreement to leverage our DUG McCloud platform to significantly enhance their Priority Processing and imaging offering to E&P clients.

DUG McCloud is our customer-focussed and collaborative cloud solution that encapsulates our high-performance computing (HPC) environment. The innovative platform allows clients to combine HPC as a service (HPCaaS), professional services, and software to suit their needs. The deal includes compute, disk storage, online archive, and our processing and imaging software, DUG Insight.

Polarcus will utilise the DUG McCloud platform at their office locations in Houston, London, Singapore, and Dubai. Our Managing Director Matt Lamont stated, “We’re thrilled to continue and extend our relationship with Polarcus. Adopting DUG McCloud will enable Polarcus to reduce turnaround times and increase efficiencies.”

Polarcus CEO Duncan Eley commented, “The ongoing collaboration between DUG and Polarcus capitalises on the aligned strengths of both organisations: strong cultures of innovation and delivery of excellence. The DUG McCloud platform is an important component of our CIRRUS™ offering which enables Polarcus to deliver clients near real-time access to high-fidelity seismic data being acquired and allows informed exploration decisions to be made faster
