In the Spring of 2018, a group of leading oil and gas companies met to discuss how contemporary cloud technology could be used to transform the current complex data and application environment. The Open Subsurface Data Universe™ (OSDU) Forum, a Forum of The Open Group, was created with the objective of enabling new cloud-native data-driven applications with seamless access to the full range of subsurface and wells data as well as supporting existing applications and data frameworks. The core principle of the OSDU solution is to separate data from applications. This will be achieved by developing a common data platform with standard public APIs and to involve global cloud hosting vendors to build working implementations. The focus of this presentation will be on data models and data architecture for geomodelling.
