A Distinguished Lecture

by

Dr. Srikanta Mishra

 

Big data analytics has become quite the buzzword in recent years, and its growing application in E&P operations promises to be an exciting new development. It involves:

(1) Acquiring and managing data in large volumes, of different varieties, and at high velocities, and

(2) Using statistical techniques to “mine” the data and discover hidden patterns of association and relationships in large, complex, multivariate datasets. 

 

 

The ultimate goal is to extract as much intelligence from our ever-expanding trove of data to improve operational efficiencies and make better decisions for optimizing the performance of petroleum reservoirs. However, the subject remains a mystery to most petroleum engineers and geoscientists because of the statistics-heavy jargon and the use of complex algorithms.

 

 

In this talk, Dr.Srikanta Mishra will provide a “gentle” introduction to big data analytics by focusing on:

 

(a) Easy-to-understand descriptions of the commonly-used concepts and techniques,

(b) Broad categories of E&P problems that can be solved with big data analytics, and

(c) Case studies demonstrating the value-added proposition for big data.
