Accenture on E&P cloud computing

Baker Hughes, Shell cited as cloud computing users.

A new 24 page publication from Accenture hails cloud computing as the dawn of a new era for energy companies. It is held as an inevitability that industry and energy companies will migrate to the cloud. According to Accenture, Shell Oil is using an Amazon ‘virtual private cloud’ to analyze the massive amount of data produced by ‘super sensitive’ seismic sensors co-developed with HP. Shell’s drillers and geophysicists use the cloud for ‘analytics.’ And Shell has been piloting Hadoop in the cloud for big data analytics and sophisticated authentication. Another oil country clouder is Baker Hughes which runs compute intensive TubeFlow simulations on the Microsoft Azure cloud.
