Schlumberger and Statoil worked together to create and populate a new
corporate data repository for all pre- and poststack seismic data. The team
implemented an extended version of the ProSource information management
technology stack. Next, Schlumberger worked with Statoil to design a highly
collaborative, integrated workflow for data reception, quality assurance, and
data delivery—to accelerate data loading, ensure data quality, and
improve user access. The workflow leveraged a highly specialized set of tools
to adapt international datasets to fit strict Norwegian data quality
The initial transfer involved the migration of poststack data and 2D
seismic lines from a third-party application, followed later by the prestack
data. The team also subjected the data to an extensive series of quality checks
and standardization processes, to prepare for the final loading.
The new Statoil databank comprises more than one petabye of
data—available 24 hours a day for download via the ProSource client.
A web portal was established to link the Schlumberger support team with
Statoil users through the data delivery, quality checking, and acceptance
stages. The service also provides a full audit trail for data submissions.
Integrated seismic—driving better decisions
The new solution allows Statoil users to track the progress of their
data through loading and quality-checking workflows, and create an audit trail
for every data shipment.
Statoil now has a secure and centralized solution for managing
international pre- and poststack seismic, velocity, and navigation data. The
company is able to make agile decisions, based on the best data available.
This solution provides
- data quality checking and rectification
- GIS-enabled data browsing
- 24-hour online data access via the ProSource client
- pre- and poststack online data storage
- improved data selection and export
- reliable data backup.
