Existing data is everywhere, and not often easy to consume. It can be found in different databases, projects, and directories. Interpreting newly acquired data can take weeks.

SLB is changing the data workflow and digital operations are advancing to help customers make the right decisions, at the right time, with the right information. Digitally assisted operations with Wellbore on DELFI help customers make better decisions during or just after data acquisition, when these decisions count the most. With existing data, Wellbore on DELFI leverages the OSDU™ Data Platform to break down barriers between users and their data.
