Putting Data at the Center: All Subsurface and Wells Data Stored in a Single Data Platform

The Open Group Open Subsurface Data Universe™ Forum is developing a standard data platform for the oil and gas industry, which will reduce silos and put data at the center of the subsurface community.

The OSDU data platform will:

• Enable secure, reliable, global, and performant access to all subsurface and wells data
• Reduce current data silos to enable transformational workflows
• Accelerate the deployment of emerging digital solutions for better decision-making
• Create an open, standards-based ecosystem that drives innovation

This will revolutionize the industry’s ability to deliver new capabilities and reduce implementation and lifecycle costs across the subsurface community.
