WesternGeco, IHS Markit enter strategic collaboration on E&P data
WesternGeco, the seismic and geophysical data solutions division of Schlumberger, has entered a strategic collaboration with IHS Markit, a global provider of information, analytics, and solutions.
The two companies will combined their data, technology and expertise on exploration and production (E&P) and make this available through the GAIA digital subsurface platform.
WesternGeco launched GAIA to speed up data discovery, screening, and ranking of clients’ exploration opportunities by providing access to all relevant and licensed data.
The platform, powered by the DELFI cognitive E&P environment, is said to “transform the explorationist’s experience and productivity.”
IHS Markit will initially provide direct access from within GAIA to its global E&P datasets, including well, production, and asset information.
