Today’s oil and gas industry is faced with a growing need to not only find and explore new
energy reserves, but also to manage existing assets more efficiently and in an integrated way.
This involves multiple teams and people with various backgrounds and skills working
together to share information, collaborate and make faster and better decisions. The key issue
in this is usually not the collection of data but the amount of available data that is ever
increasing. This presents a considerable challenge to companies striving to exploit this
information for competitive advantage.
This paper explores how recent breakthroughs in professional visualization can help improve
the collaboration process by visualizing and sharing various types of data, and how this
ultimately leads to better asset management.
