"In these times of unprecedented change and uncertainty in the oil and gas industry, our customers want options – not inflexible, closed systems -- to respond to these challenges"

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Business information provider IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO), today announced a technology alliance with Baker Hughes Incorporated (NYSE: BSI) and software company CMG (TSX: CMG) aimed at delivering a new level of geoscience analytics and engineering solutions to exploration and production (E&P) customers.

The partnership will give E&Ps a new choice for their integrated workflows by leveraging industry-leading software for geological characterization, reservoir modeling, production data analysis and reservoir flow simulation.

An immediate benefit to customers is the development of collaborative geoscience, reservoir modeling and simulation workflows that use IHS Markit Kingdom®, Baker Hughes JewelSuite™ reservoir modeling software, and CMG’s suite of simulation software. The goal: to deliver new levels of insight and efficiency for integrated geoscience analytics.

“In these times of unprecedented change and uncertainty in the oil and gas industry, our customers want options – not inflexible, closed systems -- to respond to these challenges,” said Russell Roundtree, vice president – geoscience and engineering for IHS Markit. “By integrating technology, driving workflow improvements and augmenting collaboration across vendors, we will expand our clients’ ability to be agile in the face of the industry’s rapid changes.”
