We are delighted to share that Revotech has officially become a member of the Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDUTM) forum under the membership agreement between the forum and our mother company EastSea Star Ltd. This marks a significant milestone in our journey to reach international standard so we want to take this opportunity to address what it means to us and what benefits it will bring to the Operators who are adopting i2G platform as a part of their digital transformation solution.

We embarked on our journey back in 2015 with Fractured Reservoir Petrophysics (FRP), a module designed for characterizing fractured basement reservoirs. Over time, we have expanded its capabilities and transformed it into Well Insight (WI), a comprehensive tool for full spectrum petrophysical interpretation. In early 2017 we made a strategic decision to develop the i2G cloud-based platform, serving as a home for various subsurface data management and interpretation applications including WI, Corporate database (CoDB), Machine Learning Toolkit, Basemap and Python Editor. By combining these cutting-edge tools within the i2G platform, we have created a unified and streamlined solution for subsurface data management and interpretation. This integrated approach empowers geoscientists and engineers to make informed decisions, optimize exploration and production activities, and maximize the potential of their assets.

What is OSDUTM Data Platform?

OSDUTM (Open Standard Data Universe) Data Platform is a data management platform that is designed to provide a standard data architecture and common data services for the exploration and production (E&P) sector. The platform enables companies to securely store, manage, and analyze vast amounts of data from various sources, such as drilling and production operations, well and seismic data. OSDU provides a single source of truth for the data, which enables organizations to streamline their data management processes, reduce operational costs, and make data-driven decisions. As an open-source platform, companies can contribute to its development and benefit from the innovations of others in the industry.

As of May 2023, the total number of active organizations is 233: https://www.opengroup.org/osdu/current-members
