Schlumberger and Equinor to Develop DELFI Environment, Fully Integrated with OSDU Data Platform

Schlumberger and Equinor started a strategic project, in collaboration with Microsoft, to deploy the DELFI cognitive E&P environment, with seamless integration to the OSDU Data Platform—the industry’s new data standard. This project aims to accelerate Equinor’s ability to integrate data at scale and improve decision making.

“We are pleased to be working with Equinor and Microsoft to facilitate enhanced resource discovery through this first deployment of the newly-released OSDU Data Platform fully integrated with DELFI,” said Rajeev Sonthalia, president, Digital & Integration, Schlumberger. “This provides a single, unified landscape with seamless access to data that enables the industry to rapidly run AI and data-driven workflows, creating a game-changing increase in efficiency.”

The OSDU-enabled solution will be embedded as a key part of Equinor’s Microsoft Azure enterprise-wide data platform, OMNIA. This will establish consistent data standards across the subsurface to enhance overall decision making.

The strategic project will leverage the DELFI Petrotechnical Suite, the ExplorePlan accelerated exploration planning solution (co-developed between Schlumberger and Equinor), and data science solutions from Schlumberger. These solutions improve collaboration and insights, enabling geoscientists to make informed decisions through enhanced subsurface understanding and prospect de-risking.

“We’re excited to champion OSDU as the industry standard platform that integrates our data into the DELFI environment,” said Lisa Rebora, senior vice president of Exploration Excellence, Equinor. “Our collaboration with Schlumberger in the co-creation of ExplorePlan will enable our geoscientists to draw more insights and generate more ideas and opportunities through access to a wealth of data at their fingertips. In this next important phase during 2021, we will deploy ExplorePlan to our geoscientists, connecting seamlessly to our OSDU-enabled OMNIA data platform.”


A secure, cloud-based environment

The DELFI cognitive E&P environment is a secure, cloud-based space built on key premises that make it unique in Schlumberger software portfolio. It harnesses data, scientific knowledge, and domain expertise to fundamentally change the way of working in every part of the E&P value chain. The DELFI environment makes applications and workflows accessible to all users and enables team members to build common workspaces for data, models, and interpretations while respecting proprietary information boundaries.



No compromise on security with best-in-class standards. Safeguarding customers’ data has been a Schlumberger priority for more than 90 years, so the DELFI environment is fully compliant with all regulations. It is also fully supported by cloud vendor security, operational procedures, and audits.



The DELFI environment provides a common space for teams to work together, independent of role, workflow or physical location. The result is borderless collaboration where all stakeholders benefit directly from each other’s expertise and insights.



Openness and extensibility at the heart of the environment make it straightforward to integrate, share, and build on all your available data sources, workflows, applications, and intellectual property. By making the solutions in the DELFI environment open and accessible via APIs, Schlumberger enables true integration where partnerships and collaboration is taken to a new level.



From AI to analytics, the DELFI environment puts the full spectrum of available cognitive technologies to work for you. Powerful cognitive systems recognize each user to deliver a uniquely personalized experience. Intelligently searching, proactively learning and automating tasks, enabling you to predict, prioritize, and advise.



With new data automatically shared between tasks across the DELFI environment, each live project is dynamically optimized with the latest information. Now the whole team can work concurrently on the same project, confident that the information they’re using is always current and accurate. Duplication is reduced, team productivity and efficiency are increased, while business continuity is secured.
