Halliburton Company HAL entered an eight-year contract with the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (“NPD”) to manage and avail Diskos — the national data repository of Norway.

Diskos provides seismic, well, and exploration and production data from the Norwegian Continental Shelf for the oil and gas industry. Notably, NPD contributes to value creation for the Norwegian society through efficient and reliable resource management.

Halliburton Landmark, a wholly-owned business unit of the company, will provide Diskos 2.0 with the help of DecisionSpace 365, which is a cloud-based service for the E&P cloud applications for maximizing asset profitability.

The cloud-based services are Open Subsurface Data Universe compliant that delivers high-grade data, security and governance, thereby, allowing users to easily access, visualize and interpret data from the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The cloud-based services’ flexibility and open architecture would allow workflows across the repository and operator systems in an on-premise environment or with the cloud for efficient and effective operations.

Using the DecisionSpace 365, Diskos 2.0 will apply machine learning and artificial intelligence to unlock significant value of subsurface data by revealing additional basin, reservoir, drilling and production insights. Notably, this will enhance reservoir recovery and exploration outcomes.

On its part, the contract is in accordance with Halliburton’s digital strategy. Notably, the company’s safe cloud environment, machine learning algorithms, and data science expertise will help operators maximize their asset value.
