NGDRS Phase III - Implementation
Fourth Quarter Progress Report
In October all three Sun servers (3000, Ultra/II) were loaded, and we were able to demonstrate the complete system -
databases, web front-page, and GeoTrek - to a large audience. All systems required for the web-based metadata catalog are in
place and operational. Version 54 of the PetroTrek/GeoTrek software was loaded in December and is being tested. It is
expected this version will be placed in the production environment for beta testing in January.
Installation of the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) databases on the IS Houston server was completed and GeoTrek was
loaded on BEG's server in Austin. Installation of the entire MMS well data set (35,000 records) was completed and it will be
moved to the production environment for beta testing in January. The Eastern Gulf Region PTTC interior salt basin data set was
prepared and it will be loaded in January. The Gulf of Mexico PGS seismic data set was prepared and loaded in December.
The web-site front pages for the NGDRS GeoTrek Metadata Catalog are 70 percent completed and write-ups for the tutorials
are scheduled to be completed in January. Ten users identified to be beta testers are actively testing the system.
Program Activities Summary
1.0 NGDRS STEERING COMMITTEE MEETING
Amoco hosted a meeting of the NGDRS Steering Committee at their Houston offices. The focus of the meeting was on
identification of a new repository facility and status of the GeoTrek Metadata Catalog. Two facilities are presenting being
evaluated for repositories - the Amoco Houston Core Repository located on Little York Road in northwest Houston and
Hanger Four at Denver's former Stapleton Airport. AGI is actively pursuing both of these possibilities.
The GeoTrek Metadata Catalog was demonstrated, reviewed, and tested. The Committee was highly supportive of the GeoTrek
development effort. The Committee recommended establishing two activities committees - one to address the needs for a
repository facility and contributions of cores and cuttings and a second to address opportunities for loading service company
databases on GeoTrek. John Deery, Amoco, will chair the Repository Core Subcommittee and Robert Merrill, Spirit of 76, will
chair the GeoTrek Metadata Catalog Subcommittee. Each company was given an opportunity to discuss and review their data
management issues and how they might be addressed through the NGDRS program. Minutes and handouts for the meeting are
attached with this report.
