Schlumberger Introduces Digital Exploration Platform
Schlumberger introduced the GAIA digital exploration platform, which it says enables exploration teams to rapidly discover and access basin-scale data and manage their exploration opportunities.
Schlumberger introduced the GAIA digital exploration platform at the 81st European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers Conference and Exhibition. The GAIA platform enables exploration teams to rapidly discover and access basin-scale data and manage their exploration opportunities.
The GAIA platform uses the power of the DELFI exploration and production (E&P) cognitive environment to access data available from Schlumberger and other E&P industry data providers. The GAIA platform provides a personalized user experience, enabling the explorationist to discover, visualize, and interact with all the available data in a region or basin without compromising resolution and scale. The GAIA platform enables clients to manage their exploration portfolios in line with their corporate strategies. In addition, oil and gas regulators can use the platform to showcase their countries’ assets to potential operators. Also, E&P industry data providers can provide their clients with subscription-based access to their data library.
“Exploration teams spend a significant amount of nonproductive time finding, loading, and curating data for months before they can start using the data in their subsurface workflows,” said Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, Schlumberger. “We developed the GAIA platform to accelerate our clients’ data discovery, screening and ranking of their exploration opportunities. Our clients can now stop exploring for data and focus on exploring for oil and gas.”
Unique to the GAIA platform is the combination of a high-performance digital map for global data discovery and 3D visualization with streaming of basin-scale subsurface data. The GAIA platform is designed to modern cloud-security standards with full data encryption, federated single sign-on and continuous monitoring by dedicated cloud-security operations centers.
GAIA provides access to more than 3 million km2 of 3D seismic surveys, 3 million km of 2D seismic lines, and other exploration data types from a partner network of leading seismic- and well-data providers.
