Schlumberger on Monday introduced a new digital exploration platform designed to help exploration teams to rapidly discover and access basin-scale data and manage exploration opportunities.
The GAIA platform uses the power of the DELFI E&P cognitive environment to access data available from Schlumberger and other E&P industry data providers, providing a personalized user experience, enabling users to discover, visualize and interact with all available data in a region or basin without compromising resolution and scale.
“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.”
More than 3 million square kilometers of 3D seismic surveys, 3 million kilometers of 2D seismic lines, and other exploration data types from Schlumbergers' partner network of seismic and well data providers will be available through the platform.
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.
Schlumberger said the GAIA platform enables clients to manage their exploration portfolios in line with their corporate strategies, for example, or oil and gas regulators can utilize 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, the company said.
The platform is designed to modern cloud security standards with full data encryption, federated single sign-on and 24/7 monitoring by dedicated cloud security operations centers.
