Logica teams with USC Viterbi on Chevron’s ‘Session’

CiSoft researchers to apply complex event processing to real time production data filtering.

Chevron, Logica and the CiSoft arm of the University of Southern California’s Viterbi School of Engineering are working on a novel approach to the analysis of real time data. The ‘Session’ program includes a new data framework to cleanse incoming data from production sensors in the field and to provide insight into the condition and productivity of reservoirs and underpin field management. According to CiSoft, production sensors are not currently ‘filtered’ and can result in ‘misinformed decisions.’ Moreover, today’s information systems process information in ‘chunks,’ meaning that the data is only filtered after its collection, ‘lowering efficiency.’

USC Research Associate, Farnoush Banaei-Kashani is developing the framework around Logica’s complex event processing middleware (Oil IT Journal, May 2012). A training session was held in USC for the CiSoft team last month. More from CiSoft.
