Houston Warehouse

Vicky Artell is our Operations Manager in the US. We asked her to about the site and services they offer in Houston, this is what she had to say.

CGG’s storage site, located in Houston has been in operation for almost 10 years. During 2014 the site was subject to significant investment in a new Data Remediation Centre.

Our on-site Data Remediation team offers not just a world-class tape transcription service but also a QC process that makes sure the data is of the best quality possible. Our activities include tape transcription services (specializing in, but not limited to, legacy tape and cartridge media) which convert the original data into standardized modern formats. The team includes experts in dealing with damaged tapes and old formats: if it can be read, they will read it.

Data is then either transferred directly to the client via secure file transfer and/or output to other media, as determined by client requirements. We also have the capability to store the data online, giving clients a low-cost storage solution coupled with instant access to the data when they require it.

However, this is not the end of the services offered; we also provide Vectorization and Well Log interpretation. We have a team that understands the data they are working with and they focus on the use of the data, not simply copying or extracting the data. As part of the global tape remediation team with access to experts and facilities around the globe, there is no project too big, too complex or too small for the team.

Our Houston warehouse provides climate-controlled client storage for document, tape and cartridge media, with layout rooms available for data viewing. Understanding the data and its potential value are at the heart of the management of the warehouse facility. This is not simply about 'boxes on shelves', but the storing of a valuable asset.

A range of services are available for managing the data, from cataloging through to full audit and data clean-up. These services focus on extracting the greatest value from the data while reducing the cost associated with storing the data for the long term.

The site is certified with the following ISO/OHSAS accreditation:

  • Quality Management - ISO 9001:2008
  • Occupational Health and Safety - OHSAS 18001:2007
  • Environmental Management - ISO 14001:2004
