Is there a better way to help bridge the very real generational gap, promote gender balance and expand the horizons of oil and gas employees than through <reciprocal> mentoring? Mentoring is usually reserved for young professionals, to receive the wisdom passed down by industry veterans. However, nowadays, reciprocal mentoring has become a necessity. Taking on..
• Joint effort to develop and supply cloud-based digital solutions for oil and gas providers • Oilfield solution will provide real-time analysis to increase production and financial performance • Collaboration meets customer demand for enhanced digital automation ABB and Enovate Upstream have signed a memorandum of understanding to apply their complimentary digital platforms, ABB Ability™ Wellhead..
The Rise of a Giant That Will Move the Industry Forward When we think about the future of the oil and gas industry, we ought to think about creating fundamental changes from within and revising operating models. The current market climate has become an opportunity cornucopia to discover and unlock technological developments that improve current operational..
This work presents two cases for the application of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques as complementary tools to classic physics-based modeling. On the one hand, we discuss the benefits from the implementation of an AI-assisted non-linear solver, especially designed for analytical simulation of multi-fractured horizontal wells, that led to obtaining fast simulation results, this way opening..
The world around us relies heavily on energy, and thus, on engineers. On their ability to create new methods and make processes safer for communities and the environment. Engineers apply science, mathematics and engineering methods to complex system integration and operations. Improving the optimization of various resources. Reducing wasted materials, money, and time. Enter Oswaldo Perez and German..
REVOLUTION OR EVOLUTION? In order to maximize the value of digitalization for net zero, the current financial and risk management models in the industry need to be upgraded as ROI and safety will be re-defined based on the balance between social, environmental, and financial factors for net zero. The energy sector’s footprint can be reduced..
The world federation of mental health has set the theme for this year’s mental health day: ‘Mental health in an unequal world’.So what are we doing to change that inequality? To provide mental health care to everyone, equally? Before COVID-19, people everywhere were already struggling with mental health issues without having access to the right..
In machine learning there are many umbrellas that refer to different processes or set ups for the “learning” to take place. Today’s discussion will surround two commonly used umbrella terms, supervised and unsupervised learning. In this case the process or set up we are referring to lays within the raw data itself. When setting up..
Recently, I attended the URTeC 2021 Conference, sponsored by Enovate Upstream. My role included providing technical insight into the machine learning and artificial intelligence that Enovate Upstream uses in its product offerings. Reconnecting with the team was great. I walked with Ty Summers, John Estrada, and Laura Santos to view all the booths around URTeC…
Enovate Upstream is an organization built by visionaries, innovators, artists – and yes, inventors too. Some may even say that finding – and inventing – new ways to create highly efficient simulations to predict and boost performance, is a work of art all on itself. The interest and motivation for high-performance computing in reservoir simulation has..
Predicting EUR is a challenging task. Nearly all approaches that are being used in predicting said long-standing behaviors, have displayed various limitations. So, if decline curve analysis (DCA) is not the appropriate method for unconventional reservoirs, which one is it? For about twenty years now, the oil and gas industry, has widely applied DCA in..
