Independent natural gas and oil company Wintershall Dea has selected Ikon Science to optimize its core data. Wintershall will use Curate, Ikon’s scalable cloud-enabled subsurface-data-management software.

The multiyear deal includes Ikon’s data services to migrate and optimize all core data for quality assurance and the use of Curate to manage and visualize core data.

“Wintershall Dea is introducing Curate as the new harmonized platform for core data to facilitate management, visualization, and interpretation of our core data in one solution,” said Ulrich Lorang, Wintershall’s vice president of data governance. “It is important for us to free data from silos, to store it in one workspace, and to make it readily accessible to our experts from anywhere and at any time.”

Curate’s automation consolidates data so end users can access it on demand in one workspace.

“Digital transformation solutions like Curate that integrate vetted core data into one workspace streamline and simplify work flows to produce valuable insights directly for end users, enhancing the quality and speed of decision making,” said Denis Saussus, Ikon’s CEO. “Efficiency gains enable energy businesses to optimize the value of their data to achieve a greater competitive advantage.”
