Earth Science Associates is a software development and consulting company to the oil and gas industry, government agencies and international organizations. The company is best known for the GOM3 geographic information system (GIS) and its online component, GOMsmart.

GOM3 and GOMsmart combine and organize data released by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), and other key industry sources into a single integrated and powerful research platform.
GOM3 is the leading data and analysis platform for the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, 80% of oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico is produced by GOM3 clients.

There are no competing systems that unite analytic power and data, or the frequency of updates like GOM3.

The value of GOM3 comes from the richness of our GOM data, combined with the powerful and flexible ArcGIS-based toolbar developed by ESA for GOM oil and gas exploration, and production and data management.

GOM3 Analytics Addon
The Analytics Addon combines multiple tools to maximize bidding information, financial planning, project management and analysis.

The Block/Bidding Evaluation of the Analytics Addon analyzes past behavior of each company relative to 25 variables to extract how companies bid and how much to expect on a high bid. Post-sale reports display information on companies and bidding in new ways.

The Tie-back tool integrates bathymetry and seafloor hazards to calculate optimal routes from a well location to a platform or pipeline tie-in.

GOM3 Geophysical Addon
The Geophysical Addon is a new way to integrate vertical seismic sections into three dimensional scenes with all of the vector data of GOM3, such as wells, sand-body reservoirs and paleo observations.

The primary tool can take any arbitrary image, exported from a seismic package (or a cross-section from other sources) and load it into 3-D scenes.

The Geophysical Addon also includes all of the publicly-released 2-D and 3-D seismic data in the northern Gulf of Mexico and the top of salt identified in an unsupervised process.
