Summary Seismic data gathered from the Hydrocarbon Exploration and Discovery Operation is essential to identify possible hydrocarbon existence in a geologically surveyed area. However, the discovery operation takes a long time to be completed and computational processing of the acquired data is often delayed. Hydrocarbon exploration may end up needlessly covering an area without any hydrocarbon traces due to lack of immediate feedback from geophysical experts. This feedback can only be given when the acquired seismic data is computationally processed, analysed and interpreted. In response, we propose a comprehensive model to facilitate Hydrocarbon Exploration and Discovery Operation using encryption, decryption, satellite transmission and clouds. The model details the logical design of Seismic Data Processing (SDP) that exploits clouds and the ability for geophysical experts to provide on-line decisions on how to progress the hydrocarbon exploration operation at a remote location. Initial feasibility assessment was carried out to support our model. The SDP, data encryption and encryption for the assessment were carried out on a private cloud. The assessment shows that the overall process of hydrocarbon exploration from data acquisition, satellite data transmission through to SDP could be executed in a short time and at low costs.
