Making your Data & Information Work for you during a Decommissioning Program

Data and information are key components to any decommissioning activity. Without the correct data and information, the risks (HSE, budget, time, compliance) associated with these activities increase massively and making the correct decisions is often difficult.

As such, early preparation, QC and access to data and information is imperative. Flare can help with this by providing:

Easy to use search tools for locating data and information
Tagging of information to improve search results
Tracking of data deliverables and regulatory compliance

Do you wish you could find your hardcopy data?

If you have spent more than a few years working in the oil and energy sector, you will know that with each cyclical dip in the price of oil comes a spate of corporate acquisitions, mergers and takeovers.

Combine this with the scores of license rounds and farm-in opportunities in which your company may have participated over the decades, and its little wonder that your legacy data stores can become difficult to navigate.

This is particularly true for hardcopy data. Almost all majors and supermajors have reams of paper wellfiles, seismic sections and basemaps that they have acquired over the years, often accessible only as library listings.

Flare Solutions specialize in the surfacing of lost data. Supported by the very latest in cognitive search technology, our career data managers are on hand to find, organize, spatialize and digitize your legacy well and seismic data, no matter how big the challenge.

If you would like to know exactly what data your company has access to, give us a call.

Flare’s Energy Taxonomy expands into Renewables

Flare’s oil and gas taxonomy has set the standard for the energy industry’s document tagging, knowledge-management and free text search software for the past twenty years. Its impact has meant that information is now much easier to find and retrieve in many E&P companies across the globe.

Flare have recently extended its taxonomic coverage to all areas of renewables and associated sectors, including solar, wind, tidal, hydro, geothermal and CCUS. This means that the taxonomy can now fully support energy companies in their transition to Net Zero.

Do you need to manage regulatory reporting?

Do you need to manage regulatory reporting?

Organisations often have to manage hundreds of daily, weekly, monthly or annual regulatory or partner reports across many business areas.

Flare has combined their document classification and process tracking systems to create a cross-organisational system that:

Facilitates the capture and classification/tagging of key ‘regular’ reports
Assigns reporting responsibilities and manages access control
Provides reminders of upcoming or missed reporting deadlines
Creates management metrics to drive reporting performance improvement
Routes documents to appropriate stores based on business rules

And links to all of the reports are added to Flare’s Sirus Enterprise information system, so they are easy to find.


How can inheritance help you find information?

For over twenty years, Flare has been helping clients improve their search experience with a single search over multiple technical repositories.

One of the key concepts that helps support improved search is the ability for information to inherit context depending on where it is being stored, or where in a structure it has been placed.  This reduces the burden on users to add tags to enable future information discovery.

The Flare IM tools makes it possible to define inherited tags based on the source of the information, or inherit tags based on the file structure or process being run, e.g., a SharePoint site might drive confidentiality settings, the position in a file hierarchy might define the country the content is about or the user community that the content is relevant to.

Combine the idea of inheriting tags with a semantic search and taxonomies to really add power to your search.

Would you find it difficult to create your companys Taxonomy?

Taxonomies can add value to your information and will inevitably make things easier to find, retrieve and manage. However, creating your own taxonomy can be difficult, time consuming and may not always provide what your organisation needs.

When investigating the creation of your own taxonomy, you need to look at factors such as the build cost, maintenance costs, complexity, scalability, interoperability and the overall end result, the total cost of ownership and how it fits with your objectives.
