CALGARY, December 23rd, 2016 – geoLOGIC systems ltd. (geoLOGIC) today announced that it has purchased Canadian Discovery Ltd.’s (CDL) Well Completions & Frac Database and related products, including its Direct Data Access add-on module and the Drilling Database.

This acquisition includes the products and the team behind them, so clients using Canadian Discovery’s Well Completions & Frac Database will continue to receive the same high-quality data and service they have come to expect.

“geoLOGIC is excited to integrate such an important data set with its existing product offerings,” said geoLOGIC CEO David Hood. “Fracking has been the key technology that has driven the spectacular growth of North American hydrocarbon production and geoLOGIC now owns the only comprehensive Canadian fracking data set in existence. We have big plans to build on the data and interpretation tools to provide even more value for our customers.”

CDL CEO Kaush Rakhit said, “CDL is extremely proud to have developed the Well Completions & Frac Database over the past seven years. I want to thank our clients for their support in helping us build the largest digital completions and frac data set in Western Canada. We are excited to see its continued development and growth with geoLOGIC.”

As part of the sale agreement, CDL will retain access to the Well Completions & Frac Database and continue to focus on its industry-leading information products, specialized data offerings, and consulting. “Canadian Discovery has been a trusted geoscience leader for 30 years and we have no plans on stopping,” said Rakhit.

To ensure a seamless customer transition, CDL will continue to maintain existing systems including the website and Direct Data Access module. geoLOGIC and CDL will work together to fully integrate the data into geoLOGIC’s flagship products—geoSCOUT and the geoLOGIC Data Center (gDC)—and transition support responsibilities to geoLOGIC’s industry-leading Customer Solutions helpdesk.
