Well Information Management
The Information Store's well information management solution was designed by upstream data managers to target specific needs of data professionals. The solution offers web–based access with a comprehensive suite of well information management tools including import, validation, audit, reference data management, and data editor that together allow for creating multi–source gold standard data and facilitate synchronization of disparate databases with the master source.
Well Log Management
The Information Store's well log software is streamlined to build and manage log and curve archives. The system includes data validation, master curve mnemonic assignment, log classification, extensive log vendor dictionaries, and an integrated log viewer. Curve statistics gathered during the log load process indicate NULL values and their counts, show curve minimum and maximum values, and allow NULL value correction as necessary. Well log management integrated with your master data easily replaces well log header data with validated well header information.
The Information Store's experienced data management team can assist you by putting together a data governance program tailored to your business, enabling good data management practice at each step of the data lifecycle. This ensures your organization will have the most appropriate and correct data available at all times.
The Information Store's maturity validation service assists in the understanding of how each data type and database is managed and utilized. Through a series of questions, the state of your data types is assessed and a report is produced that summarizes observations, conclusions, and recommendations to achieve more mature data management processes.
