Solving the Space Junk Crisis with HPC


SHPCP Board Members Lead Panels at Annual EAGE Conference in Madrid


SHPCP President Doug Norton led a panel titled ‘The Future of Computing in the Energy Industry’ as it expands into renewable energy technologies. He was joined by panelists Gabriel Guerra (Shell Research)Dmitriy Tishechkin (AWS)Nefeli Moridis, Ph.D. (NVIDIA),and Nicholas Borsotto Machado Monteiro (Lenovo) for a great discussion.

Perhaps the biggest take-away is we must innovate and leverage the powerful combination of HPC+AI to address the energy transition and ensure energy security.

8 June 2022


SHPCP Board member Kannan Venkataraman led a panel titled ‘Challenging Decision for O&G Data Management Departments’ on the balancing act between saving data that is useful and must be kept vs. what can be discarded. He was joined by panelists Mik Isernia (AWS), Emily O’Neill (Schlumberger), Guy Gueritz (NVIDIA), Jamie Cruise (Schlumberger), Jill Lewis (Troika International), and Bjørn Thorsen (RoQC Data Management).

One interesting example was on the value of what may be considered old and outdated information. A company agreed to transcribe some 40 year old seismic data for a customer from tape for free. It turns out some other companies were willing to pay $millions for this data, since a lot of it was in what are now exploration-moratorium areas, national parks, or scientifically sensitive areas. Armed with this data, they were allowed access to areas that would not allow a massive project but could allow a small focused one in areas this data showed were valuable.
