Unmanageable and Underutilized Data
Across our industry, we are challenged by increasing amounts of data arriving ever more quickly, sometimes called the “big data” issue.

The classic response to vast volumes of data is to select only a sub-set and/or to approach any analysis with a ‘going in’ model – for example to pre-judge that the key correlation is between Parameter X (for example, Cost) and some other Variable Y (for example, Delay) – rather than letting the data ‘speak’.

And, technically, scatter (XY) plot and regression loyalists are falling way behind those that are applying advanced analysis techniques to identify hidden signals in their data

Underutilized Analytics
Advanced analysis techniques like machine learning can deliver much more value in the context of problem solving, and have demonstrated their power in the ‘big data’ shale oil and gas provinces of the USA by pulling out of the many potential influences those that have the biggest impact on production; by enabling vast amounts of data from satellite-borne sensors to be understood; by offering monitoring/preventative maintenance for operations equipment, for example turbines.

In all these applications, these techniques have truly ‘let the data speak’.

The key here is that we must avoid this becoming yet another (IT) technology solution looking for a problem to solve!
And so for this event we seek presentations that demonstrate the solving of oil & gas problems using analytic/machine learning techniques.

Please get in touch with me if you have an insight to offer!
