Australia's largest oil and gas operator Woodside Energy will leverage Schlumberger's DELFI cognitive cloud-based software environment in an effort to increase consistency, reduce study cycle time and foster innovation in its subsurface characterization and development activities, Schlumberger announced on Tuesday.
According to Schlumberger, the DELFI environment delivers extensive integration and connectivity across E&P domains from planning to operations, built around openness and extensibility. The environment leverages 40 years of E&P domain software expertise and digital technologies, including security, analytics, machine learning and high performance computing (HPC) to improve operational efficiency and deliver optimal production.
“The DELFI environment will help Woodside meet their ambitious corporate goals by enabling their teams to collaborate seamlessly and work on the leading E&P software platforms and the new native solutions for the DELFI environment. Woodside will also be adding their own intellectual property and workflows to achieve accelerated innovation,” said Trygve Randen, president, Software Integrated Solutions, Schlumberger.
Shaun Gregory, chief technology officer and executive vice president exploration, Woodside Energy, added, “Woodside pioneered the Australian LNG industry more than 30 years ago, and now we are taking steps to lead the E&P industry’s digital transformation. Enterprise deployment of the DELFI environment will help us achieve our growth strategy by reducing time to final investment decision and lowering technical unit costs.”
A seven-year technology collaboration between the two companies will give 200 global petrotechnical users at Woodside full access to the DELFI environment, including the Petrotechnical Suite, the Planning Suite and the developer capability for further collaborative innovation projects, Schlumberger, adding it will also provide data management and transition services.
