About AI in Oil & Gas Executive Virtual Boardroom

Oil and gas exploration companies are under the pressures of both time and cost. They need to improve decision-making, accelerating data analysis for 3D modeling, exploration, seismic processing and rendering, as well as drilling simulations can pay huge dividends when evaluating and drilling a prospective oil well. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technology helps Oil and Gas companies assess the value of reservoir exploration, production, development, engineering, audit and sales .

The process of operationalizing AI requires massive amounts of data to flow unhindered through a five-stage pipeline, from ingest through archive. As enterprises of all types embrace AI technologies, they face data challenges (aka bottlenecks) from edge to core to cloud. On this Virtual Boadroom we will discuss how data management solutions can remove bottlenecks at the edge, core, and cloud to enable more efficient data collection, accelerated AI workloads, and smoother cloud integration.

Oil and Gas companies have been pairing NetApp’s unified storage with the Schlumberger E&P workloads for years. This gives them a robust, feature-rich computing platform for their upstream data and application environments. Customer leverages data storage and management best practices established by NetApp and Schlumberger for applications such as the Petrel E&P software platform and others that rely on our most popular hybrid storage arrays purpose-built for business-critical workloads. These range from high-speed data access to massive data movement to multi-PetaByte scale to leading flash integration.

NetApp’s proven cloud integration, eases and accelerates the deployment of the Schlumberger’s solutions in your data center or hybrid cloud. By adopting NetApp’s cloud offering customer can make decisions faster since their data is conveniently available in cloud provider of their choice including AWS, Azure and GCP. Accelerating decision making with cloud connected storage oil ang gas companies can massively improve their revenues.
