Geoscience and engineering workflows are applied to increasingly complex reservoirs. Collaborative teams require the use of different vendor solutions to apply the best technologies to solve problems and deliver the most accurate models and predictions. A new direct data transfer protocol based on existing mature industry standards simplifies and speeds up the data connection between applications. It also ensures better data integrity and complete flexibility in assembling and executing workflows. Based on the mature WebSockets protocol, this new standard has the necessary sub-protocols to reliably handle complex data relationships, very large data arrays as well as unique item identifiers. In addition to accelerating workflows and making them more reliable, this new protocol simplifies the addition of new innovative technologies alongside proven ones, for the best outcome within the tight resource and time limits imposed by the upstream industry.
