Benefits of Artificial Intelligence in Oil and Gas Production

Artificial Intelligence in Oil and Gas is becoming a very popular topic. MIT’s Sloan School of Management’s article, “Reshaping Business with Artificial Intelligence,” found that 85% of corporate executives surveyed believed that AI would help their businesses gain or sustain competitive advantages. What does that look like for oil and

What Kind of Events Can AI Detect?

When it comes to event detection, a common question we receive is, what kind of events can AI detect?  We sub-categorize these events of interest into four different types: 1) High-Risk Events, 2) Sub-Optimal States, 3) Events Needing More Lead Time, and 4) Silent Killers. We will explain these event

Data Continuity, Granularity, and Latency

Following up from our last post, we will take a close look at Continuity, Granularity, and Latency in this post. What are these aspects of data quality and why are they so important? Continuity – How much source data is available without gaps or lapses? Faulty sensors and communication failures

6 Aspects of Data Quality that Align with Problems

When looking at controlling costs as an oil and gas operators, it is important to look at the data quality for what you are using to solve problems and to measure your ROI. Do you have complete enough data at a sufficient rate for analytical analysis? What makes quality data?

Operator Challenges in Controlling Costs

E&P companies are facing common pressures across the oil and gas industry to reduce lease operating expenses. The days of $100 oil are long over. Oil hovered between $50 to $60 / bbl for several years. Now with demand destruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with oversupply from OPEC+

The Four C’s of Data Quality

It seems somewhat simple, but the better the source data is, the better the resulting predictions or recommendations are going to be. Think of data as the rocket fuel for your AI journey. Here is a set of dimensions that can be used to evaluate source data: Coverage: Coverage is

Production UNIFIED MONITORING: Tools to Enable the Front Lines

We have created a tool that empowers both Engineers and Operators on the front lines. Operators are the “boots on the ground”, the front line, and empowering them is key to much of the success. The fewer programs that Operators have, the better things can be. Reducing the distance between

Collaboration of Operators and Data Scientists Is Key

A major challenge has been to foster cooperation between two groups with such different skills and backgrounds, O&G operation and data science. Failure of many projects is due to failure of collaboration of these groups to understand one another to achieve shared objectives. Data science often thinks models can be
