Running farmouts is more efficient, effective and secure with the support of our industry-leading data rooms. They enable rapid achievement of your divestment project goals by providing access to the best people, technology and processes available in the industry today.

End-to-end service delivery

To help accelerate the provisioning of your farmouts, our data room management services span virtual, online and physical data rooms. Our Delfi Virtual Data Rooms are backed by our extensive experience in hosted services to ensure a highly secure and tailored platform for asset divestment. Similarly, our online and physical data rooms are anchored in tailored technology delivered by highly skilled experts.

Delfi Virtual Data Rooms

Global access

The Delfi Virtual Data Room is a game changer. Whereas traditional data rooms involve securing a physical room with required hardware and sourcing interpretation software before eventually loading and configuring data, the Delfi Virtual Data Room enables divesting companies to promote their acreage or assets to a global audience through the power of the Delfi digital platform and its cloud-based access.

No longer do investors have to fly in with a limited number of experts to evaluate the data—a process which takes time and reduces the scope to promote investment opportunities to a global audience. Now, using the Delfi Virtual Data Room, investors can review the data from anywhere in the world and bring their experts together virtually to evaluate opportunities—fast.

Trusted software–rapid setup and management

Because investors need their petrotechnical experts to evaluate acreage with tools they know and trust, the Delfi Virtual Data Room provides access to Domain Profiles on the Delfi platform. This advanced technology includes access to industry-leading applications including the Petrel subsurface software and the Techlog wellbore software, enabling investors to use a comprehensive and trusted set of tools to simultaneously share a common view of the acreage and evaluate the opportunities on offer.

The Virtual Data Room can be configured and managed from anywhere in the world, allowing provisioning for both the seller and the buyer in a fraction of the time versus physical data rooms. When you need to move quickly and respond to market opportunities these time savings can be invaluable—our virtual data rooms take just a few hours to fully configure once a contract is in place. Divesting companies can also view an automated dashboard to understand the status of investors’ reviews.

Data security & confidentiality

Data security is a key requirement for any deal making in oil and gas. Leveraging the Delfi digital platform, the virtual data room is backed by industry leading security technology and processes ranging from end-to-end encryption, identity management, 24/7 E&P cloud operations support and adherence to industry standards including SOC-2 accreditation for system security and availability. Data viewed in the Delfi Virtual Data Room is also watermarked for additional protection.

The identity of any single investor or their company is also shielded by default from anyone else using the data room and the owner has full control of who accesses the data room to ensure only the correct people are getting access.

  • Data security protects data from being downloaded
  • Confidentiality ensures the identity of the investors or their company are not exposed to anyone else in the data room
  • Full control of data access
  • Watermarks ensure data is not copied
  • Collaborate with applications in Domain profiles on Delfi digital platform
