Right Hemisphere Product Graphics Management Software Helps Save Millions in Oil Services Industry

Graphical Assembly and Parts Data in Library Used to Provide Quick Compatibility Checks of Oil Well Completion System Components in a Digital Environment

FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 28, 2005 -- Right Hemisphere®, a leading provider of Product Graphics Management (PGM) software, today announced that one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the petroleum and energy industries, Halliburton (NYSE: HAL), has bought its Deep Server™ PGM software. Already deployed and in use, Right Hemisphere's Deep Server enterprise software is automating the transformation of thousands of 3D computer-aided design (CAD) assemblies into one unified graphical assembly and parts library for Halliburton's Energy Services Group. This data is later used to provide quick compatibility checks of the various components of a fully assembled well completion system -- the equipment on a wellhead that regulates gas and/or oilhead production, such as the guidehead structures, wellhead housing, casing hangars, tree, and flowline connector.

"For customers like Halliburton, that need an automated way to streamline massive amounts of 3D CAD data for visual product configuration validation, Deep Server is an invaluable tool," said Michael Lynch, CEO of Right Hemisphere. "In addition Deep Server helps customers to cost efficiently perform important design validation for manufacturability, and serviceability, before the product is actually built, so companies can avoid mistakes in the real world that could cost them millions of dollars."

Right Hemisphere's flagship product, Deep Server, addresses a new category of enterprise software called Product Graphics Management (PGM). PGM integrates CAD/PDM and publishing applications, automates 2D and 3D graphics publishing processes, and manages product graphics in all leading modeling and graphic formats. With Right Hemisphere's solutions, customers leverage existing CAD assets and integrate graphics into leading ERP, DCC or dynamic publishing applications to deliver 2D and 3D graphics throughout the enterprise. These solutions are implemented quickly to automate graphics transformation and authoring and optimize the graphics publishing processes for product communications and support offerings. Supporting over 120 2D and 3D formats, Right Hemisphere's technologies provide a unified repository to easily retrieve data, a searching interface as easy to use as Google®, and a secure and managed environment for proprietary data and access control.
