Schlumberger announced that it will open-source its data ecosystem, and contribute to The Open Group Open Subsurface Data Universe™ (OSDU) Forum to accelerate the delivery of the OSDU Data Platform. Schlumberger’s data ecosystem is based on core components of the DELFI cognitive E&P environment.
Oil and gas companies will be able to accelerate their digital progress by moving data to the cloud using the OSDU Data Platform, enabling a seamless experience when deploying their own applications, or adapting the DELFI applications to their needs.
Rapid improvements in data control and integration across enterprise data sources, operations and security will be enabled. An ecosystem is created where customers, vendors and academia across and beyond the E&P industry can contribute their software code and promote their digital solutions.
open source data ecosystem contribution to the OSDU Forum is an important step to enable a rapid pace of innovation and agility for our customers,” said Ashok Belani, executive VP, Technology, Schlumberger. “We are committed to supporting the development of an updated OSDU Data Platform, which together with the contributions of others will provide unique capabilities and experience. This technology collaboration is an industry 1st - it will revolutionize the E&P workflows from traditional ways of working by bringing them into the digital future.”
The Schlumberger contribution will enable the OSDU Forum to accelerate its open source technology while protecting the principles and drivers of its community. The collaboration will provide speed, diverse involvement, flexibility and retention of business continuity. Customers can leverage the investment that they have already made and avoid creating fragmentation of data and workflows that inhibits collaboration or creates barriers to innovation within the industry.
The Open Subsurface Data Universe™ Forum is an international forum of oil and gas operators, cloud services companies, technology providers, suppliers of applications to oil and gas operators, academia, and other standards organizations working together to develop an open, standards-based, data platform that will bring together exploration, development, and wells data.
