The Future is Open

At the SIS Global Forum held September 17–19, 2019 in Monaco, over 800 representatives from exploration and production (E&P) companies and technology partners from more than 65 countries—responsible for more than 70% of the world's hydrocarbon production—convened to engage in insightful discussions on digital technology and its adoption in E&P.

The event included 12 plenary keynote presentations from leaders of global organizations and a five-track leadership program featuring influential industry panelists discussing opportunities in an environment of digital and technological disruption.

Olivier Le Peuch opened the Forum, his first as chief executive officer of Schlumberger, putting collaboration, openness and a digital foundation at the center of his vision of a reimaged E&P industry.

“The 2019 SIS Global Forum has demonstrated that Schlumberger is firmly committed to digital investments and openness,” says Le Peuch. “Working with our customers and global technology partners, we will continue to deliver technologies and solutions that are founded on our belief in openness and a vision for sharing and collaboration—vital components of the future success of upstream oil and gas. By working on common digital foundations for our industry together, we will get to the next level faster, allowing us to focus our efforts on where we can truly differentiate and bring value to our stakeholders.”

Schlumberger’s commitment to openness is taken further in the DELFI* cognitive E&P environment through three dimensions: firstly, the liberation of data and workflows, the open sourcing of the DELFI data ecosystem and its contribution to the Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU) Forum.

Secondly, the environment enables our customers to seamlessly integrate and connect their own technology and the technology of others. Finally, the developer portal provides a new path for customers, academia and independent software companies to extend petrotechnical workflows and create truly differentiated solutions.

During the event, Schlumberger introduced four native applications in the DELFI environment spanning exploration, drilling, field development and production domains: ExplorePlan* accelerated exploration planning solution enables operators to fortify the planning process and prioritize the greatest opportunities for investment; DrillOps* on-target well delivery solution ensures the rig operates at peak performance throughout the execution of the digital drilling plan; FDPlan* agile field development planning solution orchestrates tasks across the development teams, enabling coherent planning and quality decisions; and ProdOps* tuned production operations solution delivers timely insights to risks and opportunities in production operations.

In the measurements space, Schlumberger introduced the Ora* intelligent wireline formation testing platform, which delivers a step-change in reservoir evaluation by integrating new digital hardware with intelligent planning, advanced operations control and contextual insights to enable real-time decisions.

The SIS Global Forum provided attendees with an opportunity to gain knowledge from industry experts at over 200 technical talks across the entire E&P life cycle as well as exchange insights on digital and business transformation. In addition, the most advanced technical solutions in the industry were presented in collaboration with global technology and E&P companies.
