Oilfield services company Schlumberger has introduced the GAIA digital exploration platform at the 81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition in London
The GAIA platform enables exploration teams to discover and access basin-scale data and manage their exploration opportunities.
The GAIA platform uses the power of the DELFI E&P cognitive environment to access data available from Schlumberger and other data providers in the E&P industry. The GAIA platform provides a personalised user experience that allows the explorer to discover, visualise and interact with all 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 show potential operators the assets of their countries. E&P industry data providers can also provide their customers with subscription-based access to their data library.
Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, Schlumberger, said, “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.”
“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,” he added.
The combination of a high-performance digital map for global data discovery and 3D visualisation with streaming of basin-scale subsurface data is unique to the GAIA platform. The GAIA platform is designed to meet modern cloud security standards with full data encryption, federated single sign-on and 24/7 monitoring by dedicated cloud security operations centres.
The GAIA digital exploration platform provides access to more than three million sq km of 3D seismic surveys, three million km of 2D seismic lines, and other exploration data types from our partner network of leading seismic and well data providers.
