Houston-based Boxley Group reports that a major North Sea operator received ‘near exemplary’ status from the UK regulator for its drilling and completions competency management program. Boxley’s CompetencyIQ patent-pending technology and processes were key to the success and were noted as ‘industry leading.’

STEPS, a component of Landmark’s university outreach program fosters geoscience excellence by facilitating research with pre-package datasets, project outlines, software and support. The theme for 2017/18 is big data in E&P. Tenders are open now.

The Society of Exploration GeophysicistsEvolve program, a joint venture with Halliburton, leverages the ‘iEnergy’ cloud for virtual, real-time collaboration between scientists and engineers. The SEG is recruiting teams for the 2017-2018 session and will be providing data, software, and training materials along with an online forum for discussions and technical mentoring. Teams will present their results at the 2018 SEG in Anaheim.
