  • Publication number: 20210049155
    Abstract: A method includes registering a type of data file. Registering the type of data file includes storing metadata describing the type of data file, the metadata including a file storage service and a parser for the type of data file. The method includes receiving a first data file of the type from a first domain, the first data file having raw data, storing the first data file, storing one or more access rules and a lineage of the first data file, parsing the first data file using the parser to generate a content from the raw data, storing the content separately from the raw data, providing the first data file and the content to a search service, and automatically updating one or more second data files from one or more other domains based on the content of the first data file using the search service and the lineage.

  • Patent number: 8577613
    Abstract: An improved methodology for managing hydrocarbon exploration of at least one prospect. The methodology involves iterative processing that allows decision makers to iterate on assumptions and refine underlying probabilistic models as well as optimize the set of recommended exploration activities that are to be performed over time as additional knowledge is gained.

  • Patent number: 8352227
    Abstract: A method for performing operations of an oilfield is described. The method involves selectively coupling oilfield simulators according to a predefined configuration, each oilfield simulator modeling at least a portion of the oilfield, a first oilfield simulator receives an oilfield control parameter as an input, identifying an uncertainty parameter associated with probable values each corresponding to a weighted probability, a second oilfield simulator receives the uncertainty parameter as an input, modeling the operations of the oilfield to generate an estimated performance by selectively communicating between the oilfield simulators, the operations of the oilfield are modeled with a predetermined value of the oilfield control parameter and at least one of the probable values of the uncertainty parameter; and identifying an optimal value of the oilfield control parameter based on the estimated performance.

  • Patent number: 7895220
    Abstract: Middleware services link multiple data sources to multiple software applications. In one implementation, the middleware receives data requests from different applications, each request including a set of data descriptions that specify which type of data is sought from multiple real-time data sources. The middleware adapts the requests from different types of applications, and the different data available from different real-time data sources, for compatibility with a single common user interface. A user can select which real-time data to map to the common user interface, while each application may request data through a different set of data descriptions. Adapters convert data formats and communication protocols of real-time data from multiple data sources for compatibility with a given requesting application.

  • Patent number: 7539625
    Abstract: A method of well planning in an automatic well planning system comprises the steps of: selecting one or more tasks in a task manager; verifying by a task dependency a proper order of the one or more tasks; retrieving by the task manager from a task base one or more sets of instructions associated with the one or more tasks selected in the task manager and verified by the task dependency; retrieving by the task manager from an access manager one or more sets of input data associated with the one or more sets of instructions retrieved by the task manager from the task base; verifying that each set of input data of the one or more sets of input data retrieved by the task manager from the access manager is received by a corresponding one of the one or more sets of instructions retrieved by the task manager from the task base; executing, by the task manager, the one or more sets of instructions and using, by the task manager, the one or more sets of input data during the executing step thereby generating a set of

  • Publication number: 20070047279
    Abstract: A Middleware Apparatus and associated method and program storage device is functionally an/or operationally interposed between ‘one or more data sources’ and a corresponding ‘one or more applications’. When an application requests data from the data sources, the application transmits a set of ‘data descriptions’ which pertain to the set of requested data to the middleware apparatus, the middleware passing the data description to the data sources. The data sources respond by transmitting ‘all available data’ to the middleware apparatus. The adapters of the middleware will respond by generating ‘all available data pertaining to the data description’. The user will ‘map’ the set of ‘all available data pertaining to the data description’ with the set of ‘data descriptions’ thereby identifying ‘mapped available data’. The data sources will then generate the ‘mapped available data’.
