About The Event

ABSTRACT: In the Oil and Gas industry, there is a 200 billion dollar Performance Gap stemming from widespread inefficiencies, resulting in lost profitability. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) to deliver real time, self-optimizing wells can solve this issue. AI/ML results mean that inefficiencies are predicted at scale, with the sole purpose of maximizing

revenue. The key differentiator AI/ML brings to the table is the analysis of interdependencies between several datapoints in an asset, all at the click of a button. According to McKinsey Oil and Gas, AI/ML analytics applied correctly

can provide returns as high 50 times the investment.

This application vastly surpasses the traditional SCADA systems, thanks to its fusion of IoT Edge and Cloud analytics (AI software). Real time data can be downloaded from any machine, hardware brand agnostic, processed via algorithms, and deliver value at the user's fingertips.

Here are few of the results:

• Wells are optimized within hours, improving BOPD by a minimum of 3%

across the business;

• Wells that are down are analyzed based on IRR within minutes and

appropriate workover dollars can be allocated;

• With 360 view, blue collar workers can proactively identify areas to

maximize asset uptimes, allowing a 7 person team to operate at the

capacity of a 70 person team.
