The History of OSDU Data Platform

Shell SDU

AWS partnered with Shell to help solve an industry problem. Exploration workflows were inefficient, and interpretations could take months to generate. By removing data from silos and creating a subsurface data lake, AWS helped Shell unlock the potential of streamlined workflows.


AWS joined the Open Group forum to help democratize data, improve workflows, and lead innovations in the subsurface and energy community.
