OspreyData’s Data Science team presents at Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Regional Meeting
Mike Pennell, Jeff Hsiung and Venkat Putcha of OspreyData’s Data Science team presented at the SPE Western Regional Meeting, one of the Oil & Gas industry’s leading events, on April 25, 2018. The team presented a poster on OspreyData’s novel Human Augmented machine learning methodology and fielded questions by interested engineers & experts in the Oil & Gas industry. The audience showed a high interest in OspreyData’s applied neural networks, random forests and other machine learning models for detection of failures and suboptimal states in rod pumps. Jeff Hsiung’s presentation about using Convolutional Neural Networks for Dynacard description, an implementation very similar to image recognition used by smartphones and ID scanners, sparked more interest in conversations.
OspreyData Raises $5 Million in Series A Financing led by Houston Ventures
Leading Energy VC firm Houston Ventures and others invest in OspreyData’s
Expert-Augmented Data Analytics platform for Oil and Gas
OspreyData announced a $5 million Series A growth financing led by Houston Ventures with participation from existing shareholders. “This investment will help support our technology leadership position and the further adoption of our unique Expert-Augmented Machine Learning methodology and platform. We will continue to grow the sales and services teams to meet the needs of our global Oil & Gas customers,” commented OspreyData CEO John Burke.
Fred Lummis, Junior Partner at Houston Ventures, said OspreyData was a perfect
fit for their fourth fund that targets inefficiencies in Oil & Gas operations. He
states, “OspreyData’s hardware-agnostic analytics platform has the ability to
deliver massive ROI by leveraging existing production asset data streams to
transition operators to an active monitoring program that reduces asset
downtime and optimizes well performance. The enthusiastic response from early
customers signals a positive shift in the industry’s willingness to adopt Machine
Learning-powered analytics solutions that augment the performance of their
human and machine assets.”
OspreyData’s core value proposition is maximizing uptime of critical Artificial Lift
assets by bringing engineers and operators early detection of key problem states.
OspreyData has leveraged the knowledge of leading Oil & Gas industry experts,
positioning them alongside Data Scientists to create powerful models capable of
predicting problem states with real-time data. OspreyData works with clients in
stages, helping them evolve into data-driven producers without requiring
proprietary hardware or exorbitant capex investments.
