Core Laboratories Acquires Business of Advanced Data Solutions

Core Laboratories has acquired the business of Houston-based velocity modeling and depth imaging specialists Advanced Data Solutions (ADS). The integration of ADS and Core's Reservoir Technologies Division is expected to create a powerful and unique range of services and products for the geophysical industry. In particular, it will create the means to quickly generate the most accurate depth sections, primarily in areas where a strong anisotropy effect is present. Depth imaging will become a significant element within Core Lab's Reservoir Technologies Division.

ADS, founded in 1988, possesses some of the industry's leading software solutions for pre-stack depth migration and is the supplier of VIEWS™', one of the most comprehensive velocity modeling packages available in the industry. Equally important in today's geophysical world, ADS pioneered seismic processing on dusters and has developed an unrivalled level of expertise in cluster management and optimization.

Among those joining Core Lab will be Rade Drecun, ADS's President; Bee Bednar, who will take up a position as VP of R&D for the Reservoir Technologies Division; Chuck Peng, formerly with Shell, who has been appointed Director of Technology Development; Rob Yorke and Martin Wood, both formerly with Veritas, who will be the Division's VP of Depth Imaging Services and Manager of New Product Development respectively.

Through its international network, Core will provide ADS's depth imaging technologies worldwide. The Canadian market will be among the first to be entered, where offshore East Coast datasets will benefit significantly from the application of a combined Core/ADS approach.
