Today, all data being acquired in the oil field comes in digital format. When evaluating mature areas and producing assets, we will be dealing with vast amount of existing geoscience, engineering, field operational and financial data, usually in different formats.
Data integration will involve combining these different type of data.
Once integrated, the quality of the data will be validated to confirm its legitimacy. When data is ready, we will use appropriate geoscience and engineering tools (software) to undertake the interpretation of the data.
