DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF COMPUTERIZED INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN SEISMIC DATA PROCESSING (A CASE STUDY OF INTEGRATED DATA SERVICES LIMITED, IDSL BENIN-CITY). A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
Oil industry is a prominent aspect of modern economy and as it were exploration activities are very important for continuity of oil production.
The exploration activities involve the acquisition of data and processing. As exploration activities increases in the modern world, the computer manufacturers are also working hard to produce super computer and their processing that are involved.
Many firms are emerging fast and of course modern firms make use of computers, especially the mainframe computer which has a large memory space. As the activities is in the increase, there is need to increase storage facilities because there comes a time when the main memory of computer will be unable to hold all information required. This is where the secondary storage device called the magnetic tape comes to play.
A general description of the system goals, facilities and applications are involved.
ORGANISATION OF THE WORK
The main aim of this project is to show a practical approach to the exploration activities that involves the acquisition of data and processing by companies where the processing and storage of information (Seismic data) is done by computer.
In the first chapter of this project, traces of the origin of seismic data processing have been made. The problems statement, the limitations, aims; objectives and purpose of the study have been dealt with.
Chapter two treats the review of the related literature work.
Chapter three treats the description and analysis of the existing system. The oral interview for the research tools used. The organization structure of the company in question (IDSL) was looked into. Also the objectives and problems of the existing system and the justification for the new system were taken into consideration.
