Big data news

Plethoric partnership announcements team oils and service providers with big data/artificial intelligence boutiques including RS Energy Group, The Hive, MaxGrip and Cognite.

The last few weeks have yet more partnerships targeting the application of artificial intelligence and big data style applications in the upstream. Anadarko has entered a ‘collaborative partnership’ with Calgary-based RS Energy Group to combine RSEG’s analytics with Anadarko’s internal data. RSEG’s RS Data solution (released in April 2017) provides multi-sourced permit, completion and production data of ‘unparalleled completeness and quality’ across key North American and international energy plays. Working with Anadarko’s advanced analytics and emerging technologies team, RSEG has developed solutions that ‘integrate seamlessly’ with daily workflows.

Rockwell Automation has invested in The Hive, a Silicon Valley innovation fund and ‘co-creation studio,’ to access its ecosystem of technology start-ups that focus on the application of artificial intelligence to industrial automation. T.M. Ravi, MD and co-founder of The Hive said, ‘AI-powered applications target the cognitive enterprise, edge intelligence, security and smart machines.’

Schneider Electric reports uptake of its IIoT-based asset performance management (APM) solutions and ‘EcoStruxure’ converged OT/IT industrial software platform. Machine learning and pattern recognition are said to play a central role in APM as is the use of the cloud. Deals with APM/risk consultants MaxGrip and a new ‘digital services factory,’ in cooperation with Accenture are set to accelerate development. Schneider’s supply chain management and economic modelling has been deployed by BP refining for feedstock evaluation.

Aker Solutions has formed a collaboration with Cognite to strengthen its digital offering. Cognite CEO John Lervik founded the company following an engagement with Aker ASA. Aker BP is also a partner on the new IIoT platform. The partnership plans to aggregate data from industrial sensors and applications, combined with 3D-models into visualization and machine learning applications for optimization and automation.

Siemens has meanwhile announced the arrival of its MindSphere (Version 3.0) in the Amazon S3 cloud. Siemens has also created the MindSphere World community for its cloud-based ‘open’ IoT ‘operating system.’

At the first GE/Baker Hughes user meet in Florence, BHGE chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli elected to highlight not Predix, its IIoT platform, but JewelSuite, which is now ‘revolutionizing the way Shell executes field development, integrating data and workflows from seismic interpretation all the way through to geological modelling.’
