The world increase demand for oil over the past years have placed oil & gas companies like Saudi Aramco at forth front to meet market calls by expanding drilling activities. In tail, the well logging services raises calling for improved systematic approach to manage and control the various well log workflow services and the different well logging data types. At the same time, other external challenges make it very difficult to maintain well logging operational activities with existing data management solution and available resources. For that reason and to stay at the competitive edge, Saudi Aramco realized the need to operate in such dynamic environment to develop a Data Services System (DSS) to optimize and streamline the archiving, tracking, quality checking, publishing, and managing of well log data acquisition making it accessible to all Saudi Aramco disciplines.

This data management solution called Data Services System (DSS) that developed by Petris Technology Inc. and designed by Saudi Aramco. DSS provides a simple mechanism for managing well logs data in a continuously changing environment. It is based on generic set of services which are orchestrated to provide a collaborative working environment for field, processing and interpretation well groups. This system has proven its value by allowing the service companies to send well log data directly from their site to Saudi Aramco center without the need of physical media delivery.
