HOUSTON – Emerson says it will contribute reservoir domain software and expertise to the development of The Open Group Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU) Forum.
The company’s contribution is expected to improve the efficiency of reservoir modelers and reservoir engineers, and enable multi-disciplinary integrated reservoir workflows, including geomodeling and flow simulation, on top of the OSDU platform.
The Open Group is a global consortium of more than 750 technology and industry organizations that seeks to achieve business objectives by developing open, vendor-neutral technology standards and certifications. For the oil and gas industry, The Open Group OSDU Forum provides a standard data platform to break down silos and offer the community secure and reliable global access to all subsurface and well data.
Emerson’s subject matter experts will work on the OSDU Forum Reservoir Domain project alongside Energistics and other members to define and develop reservoir domain data management services that leverage industry standards such as RESQM. Under the OSDU Forum, the company and its reservoir data services partners will contribute RESQML expertise and software that supports multi-disciplinary workflows on top of the OSDU platform.
The company will also connect its entire software portfolio to the OSDU Data Platform. This gives oil and gas operators the ability to move data quickly and seamlessly to and from the OSDU Data Platform while enabling workflows.
