At the SIS Global Forum 2019, Chevron, Microsoft and Schlumberger, announced the industry's first three-party collaboration to accelerate the creation of innovative digital and petro-technical technologies. The three companies will work together to build Azure-native applications in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment initially for Chevron, which will enable companies to process, visualize, interpret and eventually obtain meaningful and vital insights from numerous data sources. The collaboration will be completed in three phases, starting with the deployment of the Petrotechnical Suite in the DELFI environment. This will be followed by the development of cloud-native applications on Azure and the co-innovation of a suite of cognitive computing native compatibilities across the E&P value chain tailored Chevron's objectives. "Combining the expertise of these three global enterprises creates vastly improved and digitally-enabled Petrotechnical workflows. Never before has our industry seen a collaboration of this kind, and of this scale. Working together will accelerate faster innovation with better results, marking the beginning of a new era in our industry that will enable us to elevate performance across our industry's value chain," said Olivier Le Peuch, Chief Executive Officer, Schlumberger.
