Schlumberger Oil & Gas Information Solutions (SIS) has opened application service provision (ASP) centers in Europe and in the US. The LiveQuest ASP offering is now available from the Aberdeen-based European Service Center, with the US portal co-located at the Houston data management center.
Both are part of a world-wide network of service centers, linked by broadband connectivity. The first center was located in Calgary, with others planned for Perth, Australia and Jakarta. GeoQuest European business manager Olivier Peyret said, “We now offer our clients high-speed access to information, record-breaking application uptime, data availability, performance, new technology access and security. The scalability and flexibility of this solution enable our customers to keep their businesses in step with current activity levels.”
GeoQuest applications offered through LiveQuest include the GeoFrame integrated reservoir characterization system, the Eclipse reservoir simulation suite, Merak economics and planning, Drilling Office and OilField Manager.
Digital certificates and access control ensure that the data and applications are limited to users with appropriate privileges. The Calgary center, launched in May 2000, now supports over 600 active users.
Jeff Spath, GeoQuest manager for the Americas said, “This is a key differentiator for us in the marketplace and our customers can expect performance gains due to the flexibility and reliability of our LiveQuest solution.” More from www.livequest.net.
