Schlumberger Software Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
Schlumberger software, a provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing to the oil and gas industry is a part of conglomerate that focuses on infrastructure industry and Internet of Things adoptions.
Schlumberger Software Recent Developments
In 2021, Schlumberger has launched DELFI* Production Data Foundation, a digital solution enabled by the DELFI cognitive E&P environment that integrates operational production data from on-premise, edge, and cloud-based sources. DELFI Production Data Foundation applies AI and advanced data analytics to a proven data model which has been used for over 20 years in the oil and gas industry. Customers receive a continuous live stream of data from any industry-standard operational source, enabling them to drive automation in operations, make better decisions faster and develop innovative new ways to solve challenges at every level of the enterprise.
In Octomber 2019, Rockwell Automation (NYSE: ROK) and Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB) closed their previously-announced joint venture, Sensia, the oil and gas industry’s first digitally enabled, integrated automation solutions provider. The joint venture leverages Schlumberger’s deep oil and gas domain knowledge and Rockwell Automation’s rich automation and information expertise to address this fast-growing market. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Sensia is projected to generate initial annual revenue of $400 million and employ approximately 1,000 employees. Sensia will operate as an independent entity, with Rockwell Automation owning 53% and Schlumberger owning 47% of the joint venture. Rockwell Automation made a $250 million cash payment to Schlumberger at closing.
In June 2019, Schlumberger introduced the GAIA digital exploration platform. The GAIA platform enables exploration teams to rapidly 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 E&P industry data providers. The GAIA platform provides personalized user experience, enabling the explorationist to discover, visualize and interact with all the 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 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. Unique to the GAIA platform is the combination of a high-performance digital map for global data discovery and game-changing 3D visualization with streaming of basin-scale subsurface data. The GAIA 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.
In May 2019, Schlumberger introduced the IriSphere* look-ahead-while-drilling service at the Offshore Technology Conference. The new service provides the industry's first application of electromagnetic (EM) technology for detecting formation features ahead of the drill bit in oil and gas wells. The service uses EM-based resistivity measurements more than 100 ft [30 m] ahead of the drill bit, which is then compared to a prepared model that incorporates offset and other data to reveal a true downrange representation of the formation while drilling. This enables operators to make proactive decisions rather than reacting to measurements at or behind the bit while drilling wells.
More than 25 field trials were conducted with the IriSphere service in Asia, Australia, Latin America, and Europe. These trials included successfully detecting reservoirs and salt boundaries, identifying thin layers, and avoiding drilling hazards, such as high-pressure formations that can lead to wellbore stability issues.
In November 2018, The Petrel 2018.2 and Studio 2018.2 were released. The Petrel E&P software platform delivers collaborative workflows with best-in-class technology and leading innovation that seamlessly integrates the subsurface domains of geophysical and geological interpretation, geological modeling, reservoir engineering, and drilling in a shared earth environment. Its unique framework makes these workflows repeatable, providing the most comprehensive uncertainty assessment from seismic to simulation, and brings disciplines together for unparalleled productivity. The shared earth approach enables companies to standardize their decision-making processes from Exploration to Production. Petrel 2018.2 delivers updates to the new Structural Geology model and grid the Depogrid, additional support for multi-SRD and shale geosteering, and improvements on RE workflows as well as usability & performance enhancements.
Schlumberger Software Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Activities
In September 2021, Schlumberger has expanded its digital drilling planning and operations portfolio through the acquisition of Independent Data Services (IDS), with the industry’s only automated reporting software. IDS enables exploration and production operators and drilling contractors to analyze and report their operational performance and provides the knowledge to enhance it.
As a Schlumberger company, IDS will be offered both as a standalone solution and as an integrated cloud-native solution, to offer customers end-to-end digital drilling solutions enhanced with AI and machine learning.
In 2018, Schlumberger completed the acquisition of VMG, a privately owned software company specializing in process simulation and thermos-physical property prediction. Through the addition of VMG and its software portfolio, customers will have the opportunity to further improve efficiency and experience a seamless collaborative workflow across the full spectrum of E&P technology enabling simulation of every portion of the production system from the reservoir, through wells, gathering system, processing facilities, and transmission lines.
