Halliburton is an active and committed member of Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU).
It is a little known fact but I was reminded the other day by Phillip Jong at Shell, Chair of OSDU, that the idea of Open Subsurface Data Universe (OSDU) germinated at the OpenEarth® Community (OEC) founders meetings in 2018 amongst other gatherings that brought the oil and gas operators together. Halliburton joined OSDU as an active member in December of 2018.
At the first face-to-face meeting of OSDU in 2019, Halliburton made a commitment to the community:
OSDU release V1 was focused on wells. With the release of OSDU V1 we are proud to showcase and ensure wells related applications in our portfolio are OSDU compatible. These cover a breadth of applications including cloud-native applications, intelligent AI/ML based applications, and workflows for data scientists to build new models run on top of OSDU. We implemented a number of DecisionSpace® 365 cloud applications including Data Foundation, Integration Foundation and Assisted Lithology Interpretation, as well as DecisionSpace® Petrophysics and Borehole Data Management, all running on OSDU. We work very closely with our cloud partners including AWS and Microsoft Azure to ensure the OSDU and DecisionSpace® 365 compatibility. As new versions of OSDU are released, we plan that all of the applications will be compatible with and run on top of OSDU.
Check out the videos below, to see DecisionSpace® 365 cloud applications launched from within OSDU reference implementation from AWS, and witness how these cloud applications running on top of OSDU enable new data science workflows.

These solutions were demonstrated at the Landmark Innovation Forum and EXPO (LIFE) in August of 2019 in a keynote by Johan Krebbers, GM digital emerging technologies and VP of IT innovation at Shell. You can relive the entire session and experience here.

For any community to grow and be successful requires active participation from not just a few but most of its members. OSDU is no different and it’s amazing to see a passionate and growing community of over 100 participating companies. Below are the key folks from Halliburton actively involved in OSDU sub-committees helping drive the OSDU agenda forward and leading the teams at Halliburton that make all the integration of our portfolio with OSDU.
Halliburton Landmark has always believed and delivered on the enterprise platform thinking and separation of data from applications. Our vision has always been to ensure that our applications and information management solutions are accessible and open. This is one of the reasons for the success of industry data management work horses like OpenWorks® and Engineers Data Model (EDM). The same commitment carries to OSDU and OSDU compatibility of our portfolio.
We are working diligently on our OSDU commitments to the community and the industry at large and will continue to look for more opportunities and ways to make OSDU successful.
