Forum

The Open Group Open Subsurface Data Universe Forum is focused on developing a standard data platform that will bring together exploration, development, and wells data. This will result in faster delivery of capabilities, and lower implementation and lifecycle costs across the Subsurface Community.

The Forum promotes and utilizes technology standards, new digital technologies, and best business practices to address the business and technical issues related to subsurface data. A consensus-based group of customers, suppliers, and academia, the Forum is relevant to oil and gas operators, cloud services companies, suppliers of applications to oil and gas operators, academic researchers, and others.

Vision

The Open SDU data platform will enable secure, reliable, global, and performant access to all subsurface data, and will accelerate the deployment of emerging digital solutions in support of better decision making.

The platform will create an open, standards-based ecosystem in which suppliers compete with each other to provide the best applications and services. This will deliver flexibility to the customers, who will be able to select the best of breed services, and further differentiate themselves by developing proprietary applications on top of the SDU data platform.

Events

The Forum is currently in the formative stage; we anticipate holding several open meetings and Webex meetings in the coming months. Please check back often for details of these events.
