What Can AI Bring To Oil and Gas Production

Artificial Intelligence in Oil and Gas has become a very popular topic. MIT’s Sloan School of Management’s article, “Reshaping Business with Artificial Intelligence,” recently found that that 85% of corporate executives surveyed believe that AI will help their businesses gain or sustain competitive advantages. What might that look like for

Successful Collaboration Leads to Success with EGML

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

Getting To Know AI and ML Models

In Artificial Intelligence(AI) and Machine Learning (ML), a model replicates a decision process to enable automation and understanding. AI/ML models are mathematical algorithms that are “trained” using data and human expert input to replicate a decision an expert would make when provided that same information. Ideally, the model should also

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

Faster Solutions for the Challenges of Operators & Engineers

We asked a Production Engineer what “a day in the life” is like, and what are common challenges that are faced as an operator or engineer. This P.E. was responsible for  300 to 400 wells, predominantly rod pumps at one producer and then ESP’s at another. What were some of

4 Starting Points For Success In A Digital Transformation

Moving to a digital oilfield is a critical enabler for producers in oil and gas. A critical focus is now on reducing operating costs, increasing employee productivity, and improving the ability to make informed and timely data-based decisions. For most oil and gas companies, the goal is clear, but the
