Project Archiving

The oil and gas industry relies on hundreds of applications to find and develop its reservoir assets. The knowledge generated from these applications is the lifeblood of upstream oil and gas companies, used daily to make critical business decisions. Securing this knowledge and making it available enterprise wide is a key competitive edge.

Industry Problems

Throughout a reservoir’s life cycle, exploration and production generates masses of digital data that must be incorporated into the existing reservoir model to enhance understanding whilst previously exploited data, no longer needed for daily operations, can be archived. But archiving isn’t a matter of keeping all your files, backing them up or maybe just ignoring the subject altogether. Effective data and knowledge management requires effective archiving to:

  • Keep your data safe yet accessible
  • Free up expensive primary storage space by removing archived data
  • Maintain system and application data, with full visibility of project decisions
  • Enable decision making, governance, compliance and strategic advantage
