Norwegian Petroleum Museum

We invite you to register for our Stavanger forum on April 17th about ways to improve decision making with subsurface data.

We have run events on the same subject in London and Aberdeen, and events on drilling data in Stavanger.

There is a lot of information available in our subsurface data - the question is whether it is managed, presented and integrated in the best possible way to support the people who have to use it to make decisions, such as where to drill next.

What is the best way to manage your subsurface data and projects, and what is the best way to make it as easy as possible to work with?

We have speakers confirmed for this event from Schlumberger, Halliburton Landmark and Roxar / Emerson,

I look forward to seeing you in Stavanger on April 17th!

Kind regards

Studio - the Multiuser Database for Petrel

Talk Description.
For many years "Petrel" and "Data Management" were like oil and water - managing Petrel projects was often a case of disk space damage limitation. Not any more.

With Studio Knowledge - the database for Petrel - users now have the security of a multi-user database, a single source for their data, giving them the freedom and confidence to release their data into the Data Management workflow.

Finding data, sharing data and collaborating together is easy -across multiple co-ordinate reference systems (CRS), across multiple units of measurement, across multiple locations - transforming the user's Petrel experience from the "one-project, one-user" scenario, to user's sharing a single data source, capturing not just data but Knowledge, enabling more productive users workflows, giving secure and easy access to your Knowledge and sharing and collaborating for faster decision making.

Petrel E&P Software Platform helps increase reservoir performance by improving asset team productivity. Geophysicists, geologists, and reservoir engineers can develop collaborative workflows and integrate operations to streamline processes.

Studio is a knowledge centric collaboration environment - providing SIS application users a whole new level of productivity and knowledge management for petrotechnical data through a scalable solution which is valuable from small teams of users to the largest enterprise. The collaboration, knowledge management and personalization capabilities of Studio are integrated into the petrotechnical desktop applications such as Petrel to ensure seamless scalable awareness and access to key insight, information and results.

The need to effectively manage the increasing volume and type of data and efficiently deliver it to the end user is a continuing challenge for data managers.

At the heart of Landmark’s DecisionSpace solution and the foundation for efficient decision making is the industry’s most trusted project data management technology, OpenWorks.

OpenWorks provides true multi-user data management thereby enabling your teams to work collaboratively - not in isolation.

The next generation R5000 version of OpenWorks is a technology leap forward, ensuring the most accurate data has been used for interpretations and analysis. Sharing data across a team reduces the total cost of ownership and eliminates the data management burden on the individual interpreter
