Shared Earth - Critical Insight

The Petrel platform is available on-premise and in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment, for geoscientists and engineers to analyze subsurface data from exploration to production, enabling them to create a shared vision of the reservoir. This shared earth approach empowers companies to standardize workflows across E&P and make more informed decisions with a clear understanding of both opportunities and risks.

The Petrel platform and the Petrotechnical Suite in DELFI

The Petrel platform data is liberated into the DELFI data ecosystem--you can access it from within DELFI-native applications and reap all the benefits of working in the DELFI environment.

  • Instant access to the latest software via a personalized workspace
  • More effective Petrel platform project management
  • Cloud-enabled high-performance computing to optimize workflow execution
  • Greater collaboration through instant and seamless sharing of data and projects between teams in different locations
  • Enhanced science through the power of analytics, cognitive science, and automation


Disciplines working together

Integration at the data level is the foundation for enabling multi-discipline integration. This integration allows the capture and preservation of knowledge, from exploration to production—from the petroleum systems modeler to the reservoir engineer and beyond, all contributing to a shared vision of the subsurface. Whether you are working on your first deepwater exploration well or delivering a comprehensive drilling program in a shale play, the Petrel platform enhances multidisciplinary workflows.
