Schlumberger said Dec. 17 it will work with OMV Upstream to deploy artificial intelligence and digital solutions across the upstream company’s operations as part of a five-year agreement.

The solutions are enabled by the oilfield service company’s cloud-based DELFI cognitive E&P environment software.

“An extensive pilot deployment of the DELFI environment helped OMV realize operational efficiencies in exploration, field development planning, drilling and well planning,” Schlumberger said in a news release.

“The OMV Upstream subsurface team used AI enhanced workflows in the DELFI Petrotechnical Suite to automatically create and simulate 200 model realizations in one-sixth of the time and in well planning operations, the DrillPlan solution helped plan eight wells in the time it would normally take to plan one.”

The agreement formalizes both companies’ commitment to progress the industry standard OSDU data platform while laying the foundation for more collaboration and innovation, Schlumberger said.
