Alex Varshavsky, CEO, Talksum
Next month, I’ll be in London (July 8, 2014), speaking at the Big Data in Oil and Gas Briefing, an event organized by Terrapinn Holdings with a focus on unlocking the value of Big Data for oil and gas efficiency, exploration, and production and how to secure competitive advantages in the industry through Big Data.
As outlined on their website, technology is driving data growth at an exponential rate, and the need to gather data into a format for analysis is one of the biggest infrastructure problems the oil and gas industry faces. This data comes in various and complex forms, making it a challenge for energy firms to interpret and leverage it. But Big Data can also be seen as an opportunity to create a serious competitive advantage.
That’s why I’m excited to speak at the briefing about how to maximize efficiency in production and how to reduce risks. This is the exact solution offered by the Talksum Data Stream Router (TDSR). In my presentation, I’ll cover the following important areas:
- Cutting non-productive time by preventing failure and down time.
- Applying a unified data structure to drilling and geological operations.
- Communicating using different data sets.
The TDSR processes upstream data to provide real-time actionability for oil and gas exploration and production, reducing non-operational time, and preventing disasters. The TDSR solution works at the remote site and at the data center level. Each can be independent of the other or can work together.
At the remote site, the TDSR collects any type of sensor or log data, including data from service providers such as mud logging, LWD/MWD, and others. The TDSR then filters the data, determines critical events, and intelligently routes the relevant data to the drilling console and other relevant locations, including the data center.
At the data center, the TDSR retrieves data from the remote site, as well as other locations, for consumption by the master drilling console, the real-time operations center (RTOC) drilling console, business intelligence (BI) tools and dashboards, and other databases. It forwards relevant information back to the remote sites and to different cross-domains such as first responders, health and services, refinery control, and others.
Other speakers at the Big Data for Oil and Gas Briefing include Intel Big Data Architect Bhasker Allene; Steria Director for Petroleum, Energy, and Industry David Cameron; Maersk Oil Qatar Senior Manager of IT Infrastructure Tom O’Reilly; and others. Another blog posting will cover their topics and insights from their sessions.
