Digital Twins: Ideas On Increased Diagnostics In Oil Fields & Platforms

In the recent April 2020 Journal of Petroleum Technology article, Upstream Digitalization is Proving Itself in the Real World, the author wrote about “Using the Cloud To Turn Big Data Into Smart Data” and how Digital Twins are being used to increase evaluations and diagnostics within oil fields and platforms. The description of “digital twin” is fairly straightforward in their usage. Several companies are leveraging artificial intelligence and data analytics to monitor remote locations and improve efficiency across their fields.

“It’s like our cars. We used to take them for maintenance every 3,000 miles; now embedded sensors and predictive analytics let us know when we’re nearing maintenance time—for example, 12% of engine oil time left. The same principle applies whether it’s a pump or a platform,” said Ed Moore, senior technologist for Chevron’s Emerging Technologies Group.

This is something that OspreyData is very familiar with. We provide a Unified Monitoring solution for this very need. Our data analytics and machine learning solutions are ready for any oil field operator looking to get into this space. Our AI and machine learning solutions are tested and efficient.
