Exprodat, the petroleum ArcGIS platform specialist, Esri Gold-level Partner and Getech Group company, has been awarded the Release Ready Speciality by Esri Inc.

The Release Ready Specialty designation is only awarded to those Esri business partners who are able to prove their expertise and capability in understanding, adopting and promoting the latest versions of Esri technology.

Exprodat works with oil and gas companies around the world and its staff are relied upon to provide the know-how and expertise needed to implement the Esri GeoSpatial Cloud within exploration and production organisations and workflows.

These skills, combined with the company's commitment to providing software and solutions supporting the lastest Esri products and versions, are the reasons that Exprodat has been awarded this prestigious title.

Chris Jepps, Chief Operating Officer for the Getech Group
, explains how the Release Ready Specialty partner award reflects his company's efforts in the past and what it will mean for Exprodat clients in the future;

We are delighted to have been recognised for our commitment to keeping current with Esri technology “ something we have worked very hard on since productising our own training, software and services some 15 years ago. A great example of this is our ArcGIS Pro for Petroleum training course that was available and released on the same day as ArcGIS Pro itself, which was no mean feat! More recently we are very proud to have upgraded our entire Software suite to ArcGIS Pro, bringing our tools for petroleum data integration, play-based exploration and shale oil well inventory planning into Esri's next generation desktop GIS application.

On behalf of Esri, Geoff Wade “ Director Industry Solutions, Natural Resources Sector commented:

This award builds on many years of dedicated commitment from Exprodat as an Esri Gold Partner. Exprodat's leadership in staying current with the ArcGIS platform creates tremendous value for our mutual clients, in allowing them to take swift advantage of new product developments, which many within the community have helped guide. The Release Ready designation exemplifies the very real level of trust and partnership that our customers can have, in knowing that Exprodat's products and services will always be compatible with the latest ArcGIS releases
