  • ISA Tarheel September Meeting : Generative AI in the Oil and Gas Industry

    Upcoming Webinar:


    Creating More with Less: Generative AI in the Oil and Gas Industry 

    SEPT. 7, 2023 | 2PM CT

    Join us for a webinar where we will demystify generative AI and discover how it is at work transforming the Oil and Gas industry, revolutionizing traditional operational processes, and paving the way for increased efficiency, innovation, and financial performance. Learn how this technology is applied to unlock petabytes of sensor data and written logs, automate repetitive tasks, improve quality control, enable predictive maintenance, support safety, advance sustainability initiatives, and mitigate business risks.

    What You Will Learn:

    • Reservoir Modeling and Simulation: Generative AI can improve reservoir modeling by reducing search time by as much as 90% and the required data by 95%.
    • Optimization and Automation: Generative AI can help identify patterns, detect anomalies, and recommend process improvements, enhancing operational efficiency and cost savings.
    • Predictive and Prescriptive Maintenance: Generative AI can analyze production data, maintenance records, and other information to minimize unplanned downtime, optimize maintenance schedules, and reduce costs.
    • Sustainable Practices: Generative AI can help support sustainability efforts by optimizing energy usage, reducing waste, and identifying opportunities for eco-friendly practices.
