Stavanger, Norway-based Kadme has announced two significant sales this month, one to Russia’s Lukoil Overseas Holdings, the other to the Norwegian oil and gas association (Norsk olje og gass) formerly OLF. Kadme’s Whereoil platform will provide Lukoil with access to geological, geophysical and field data from a single interface. Whereoil pulls information from files, interpretation projects such as Petrel and Kingdom, databases such as IHS IRIS and spatial data in ArcGIS from IHS’ web services. The system has been integrated with Microsoft’s active directories, providing single sign-on user identification and access control. Following the initial roll-out, a second project is in the offing. Lukoil’s Vitaly Voblikov said, ‘We are planning to further expand the project geographically, as well as to increase the number of information sources connected to Whereoil, such as application systems and databases.’
In a separate announcement, Norsk olje og gass (formerly OLF) has engaged Kadme to develop a well-data and scouting portal for its scout group. The new ‘Scout Web’ portal will be integrated into the Association’s geodata trading operator (GTO) unit, which oversees the scouting functions for registering and monitoring members’ well data and trades. Scout Web, also a Whereoil development, provides registration, follow-up and reporting of trade status. The system is linked to the NPD’s Bluebook and Diskos’ Petrobank. Association rep Bob Johannessen (Total) said, ‘Scout Web simplifies information flow between oil companies and frees-up scouts from the time-consuming manual tracking of data availability.’ Kadme will be presenting Scout Web at the 2013 PNEC in May.
