Full Agenda

Monday, November 19, 2018
London
The Geological Society

Getting value from digitalisation is proving harder than many of us thought, but it is quietly transforming our business. There are interesting opportunities around machine learning, working with satellite imagery, helping smaller E+P's get digitally enabled, better analytics on data to improve fraccing, and getting faster warning of developing risks.

Consider for example the advocacy of the CEO and CTO of EOG Resources, a well-respected US shale player, and the Group/Upstream CEOs of BP – they are all affirming that ”digitization” is transforming their business, and that there is a lot more to come.

Perhaps it is worth saying that at the highest level, the “E&P problem” is how to run a profitable oil & gas business with oil prices stabilized (we hope) at say $50/barrel.

Then, the folk mentioned above articulate the impact that “digitalisation” can have on:

  • Preventative maintenance/operation of surface facilities
  • Drilling and Completions (especially ‘fraccing’)
  • Reservoir Monitoring.

provided the business objective has been clearly and carefully defined.

What do we mean by “digitalisation” – how about data management in the ‘cloud’, data engineering, analytics, machine learning? And does the typical oil & gas company contain the skills to deliver the promise? Or are they going to become dependent on GE or Schlumberger? I guess we would all have our opinions on whether that was a good idea!!


This event follows on from our Solving E&P Problems with Digitisation event in Nov 2017

Teradata




Duncan Irving is the Oil & Gas Consulting Team Lead, EMEA & APAC with Teradata. Duncan joined Teradata from the University of Manchester where he instructed in geophysical interpretation and geocomputational methods for the last seven years. He was involved in consulting and research projects involving user interactions with massive subsurface datasets and more general upstream data management, and he continues to maintain research links as an honorary lecturer. One long term project was with Teradata and he drove the development of Teradata's capabilities in the Upstream Oil and Gas area. This time provided him with a deep understanding of the capabilities of Teradata and how they can best be used in the petroleum industry.
He is a geophysicist and also has a PhD in glacial geophysics and geotechnical engineering (why frozen ground moves faster during climate warming and how this affects infrastructure). Duncan lives in the hills outside Manchester with his wife and three children. He is a mountaineer, fell runner and is a card-carrying member of the CAMpaign for Real Ale.
