Apache Corporation utilizes DigitalGlobe’s imagery in global oil and gas operations

DigitalGlobe, a provider of high resolution commercial satellite imagery, has announced that Texas-based Apache Corporation has joined DigitalGlobe’s Enterprise Partner Program, a mechanism that streamlines access to geospatial products, and provides quick and easy data viewing and ordering in a desktop environment.

“High-resolution satellite imagery is valuable for a variety of uses in the oil and gas industry,” said G. Steven Farris, president and CEO of Apache Corporation. “With the QuickBird satellite’s 2-foot pixel size providing high-resolution imagery, our global operations can now utilize the data for evaluating regional geologic features, locating well spots, planning seismic operations, and mapping facilities,” he added.

The Enterprise Partner Program, launched in September 2004, offers a centralized geospatial solution for global organizations with multiple offices or procurement centers and employees of varied software skill levels.
