Bluware and Interactive Network Technologies, Inc. (INT) Secure Strategic Partnership

INT and Bluware Partner to Offer Volume Data Store (VDS) Seismic Data Format as part of Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU) Release 2

Bluware Corp., the digital innovation platform for seismic data, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Interactive Network Technologies, Inc. (INT), a leader in multi-domain visualization in exploration and production (E&P).

Bluware and INT are early members in the Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU), a forum focused on developing a standard that creates a common data platform for all exploration, development, and well data. The standard will transform the way subsurface data is captured, analyzed, and operated.

INT and Bluware are collaborating to integrate Volume Data Store (VDS), a data format with adaptive streaming technology for seismic data storage, into IVAAP, an upstream data visualization platform.

Bluware has more than 20 years of experience enabling customers to store, access, and utilize large signal datasets. At the core of Bluware’s technology portfolio is VDS, which can intelligently manage all types of seismic data, including pre-stack, post-stack, WAZ, and more as demanded by an organization’s business needs, workflows, and infrastructure requirements. It can also transfer legacy formats such as SEG-Y or SEP using advanced on-the-fly transcoding on-premise or in the cloud.

INT has 30 years of experience in subsurface data visualization. IVAAP is an HTML5 data visualization platform for E&P workflows in the cloud that empowers product owners, developers, and architects to accelerate the delivery of subsurface digital solutions for oil and gas. Rather than develop complex G&G and petrophysical visual workflows from scratch, companies can leverage the IVAAP platform and customize it in a fraction of the time. Deployable in any cloud environment (Azure®, GCP®, AWS®), IVAAP can scale to meet the needs of tens to thousands of users.

“We are excited about this partnership. IVAAP multi-domain data visualization will benefit from the adoption of VDS optimized seismic format. Together, the technologies will significantly increase the velocity at which G&G business decisions can be made,” says Dr. Olivier Lhemann, President and Founder of INT.

This partnership will result in the integration of VDS for current IVAAP customers at the end of October 2019. Later this year, INT will offer IVAAP for OSDU Release 2, which will include full support for OpenVDS, the open source version of VDS.


“We are excited to welcome INT to the Bluware platform. The IVAAP solution is one of the first cloud-native visualization solutions in E&P. INT’s extensive industry experience brings further validation to the Bluware platform. Our partnership expedites digital transformation initiatives for our customers looking for early success in their journey to the cloud,” says Dan Piette, CEO at Bluware.

Bluware enables oil and gas companies to solve the most challenging objectives in the petrotechnical world. E&P companies use Bluware to achieve previously unthinkable workflows using cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and interactive machine learning for seismic data applications and workflows.
