“ IBM’s proven experience in the chemicals and petroleum industry was extremely important to us. They have demonstrated a commitment to tackling tough problems, and they back up that commitment with research and development resources. ”
Chris Usher, senior director of technology, Landmark
Chemicals and Petroleum
Landmark, a product service line of Halliburton Energy Services, creates technology solutions that help its customers make better decisions about exploration, reservoir management, drilling and production.
To respond to its customers’ increasing demand for better decisions about frontier exploration, Landmark needed to develop workflows that would help researchers determine the size and quality of potential oil and gas fields.
Landmark collaborated with IBM chemicals and petroleum experts and IBM Research staff on a first-of-its-kind project that would integrate silos of basin modeling data, seismic data and—for the first time—rock physics in a comprehensive, integrated view.
Development of technology and workflows that Landmark customers can use to improve exploration decisions; enhanced understanding of frontier exploration challenges; reduced economic and strategic risks of frontier exploration; higher recovery rates and greater profitability from drilled basins
