Artificial Intelligence for Geoscientists
Digitalisation, data liberation, cloud computing,
artificial intelligence, automation, and cross-discipline integrated solutions are enabling the next wave of improvements for sub-surface workflows and E&P business practices. Such ongoing technology development will reshape the way we work, and how we make
decisions based on data. It is essential for E&P companies to adopt digital technologies and to take part in the transformation so they can maintain and/or strengthen their competitive edge.
Our objective is to enable previously unthinkable
subsurface workflows using artificial intelligence, data science and cloud computing. We aim to increase workflow efficiency, increase prediction quality, achieve true integration of data and disciplines, in order to discover new exploration opportunities
and increase production.
Subsurface work is typically done in a relay
between various domain experts within multiple software applications. Few sub-surface experts master all the technologies and workflows needed to produce the basis for E&P decisions. As a consequence both the data, the domain experts and disciplines are “siloed”
and thus cross-disciplinary integration, and the decisions made on top of the analysis are not optimal.
By building technology that helps to break down
the data and discipline silos we can achieve more integrated data-driven workflows that will form a better basis for making decisions. Earth Science Analytics’ EarthNET, including its data layer - EarthBANK, its AI applications, its visualisation capabilities,
and its data query capabilities offers true integration of data and disciplines that supports data-driven decision-making in E&P.
EarthNET is a cloud-native data platform, available
from any browser-enabled device, being built to be the core of all subsurface work. The platform enables seamless access to data from an ecosystem of applications that integrate disciplines and data to form the basis of data-driven decisions. EarthNET is the
foundation for creating even more value from the vast amounts of available data, and for developing additional innovative cloud-native subsurface technologies. EarthNET enables highly automated subsurface modelling and insight extraction. By leveraging machine
learning and deep learning on all the central subsurface data types, we aim to improve exploration success as well as prolonging the lifetime of existing fields.
Eirik is cofounder and CEO of Earth Science Analytics. He has 20+ years’ experience from the E&P industry. He has held various technical and managerial roles in oil companies including Statoil, and 4 years as Exploration Manager in Rocksource. He has worked with exploration, field development, and production on the Norwegian Continental Shelf as well as internationally. He holds a MSC in Petroleum Geology and a PhD in sedimentology from the University of Bergen, and is now laser focused on implementation of AI and data-driven analytics in petroleum geoscience.

Implementeringsansvarlig for Digital Field Worker på norsk sokkel, Equinor og Løsningsarkitekt, Bouvet
Digital Field Worker at Johan Sverdrup
Johan Sverdrup, as a digital flagship of Equinor, is a vehicle for digital innovation to improve safety, value-creation, quality and carbon efficiency. The Johan Sverdrup project has a strong mandate to drive digital solutions and new ways of working that may be scaled-up for the benefit of the company as a whole. The Digital Field Worker concept represents one such area where Johan Sverdrup has been a key driver for innovation. The vision is to enable field workers to work on-line in the same way as we who work at office locations take for granted when and where that gives value. The concept will now be implemented at other Equinor operated fields at the NCS, at onshore facilities, internationally and Offshore wind.
We will present the Equinor Digital Field Worker concept and how it gives Johan Sverdrup improvements in safety, efficiency, quality and reduced emissions. The Digitial Field Worker concept was introduced during the building phase of the platforms and offshore during the Hook up and Commissioning Phase that started May 2018. When the field started producing in October 2019, it was a well-established practice. The solutions supporting new ways of working in the field with the use of handheld devices will be demonstrated before we round off with reflections on what the future will bring for Digital Field Worker.

Ulf Rasmussen og Pål Aaserudseter
Cloud Advisors, Nutanix
Journey to the cloud
Pål is the CIO of a medium sized energy company. Business is going well, but they are always looking to improve cost and increase efficiency. Pål works closely with senior management and is fully aligned with the CEO and company board. This means that he will follow advice from external analysts and is dedicated to a cloud-first strategy, aiming to move nearly all workloads into the public cloud both related to datacenters, remote offices, and now also IoT related workloads, the reason being reduced costs, improved time-to-market on new initiatives, increased security, and to free up internal resources.
However, as Pål has been in the industry for a while he is somewhat concerned that he might lose control of his IT environment. Not only related to performance and security, but also related to cost in the public cloud and communication cost. Another concern Pål has is that by going all-in with a single public cloud vendor he has put “all his eggs in one basket”, resulting in a lock-in with little or no leverage for negotiation regarding cost. Most importantly he will have no exit-strategy allowing the company to go through a smoother cloud repatriation phase and adopt a hybrid or multi cloud strategy.
Ulf, a long-term friend of Pål, is working at Nutanix with cloud solutions. Pål has used Ulf as a trusted advisor on many occasions and luckily Ulf is in the audience this day and can step up and help guide Pål through some of his concerns. They will discuss the company’s cloud first strategy and concerns related to this, as well as the trend which analysts refer to as “cloud repatriation”, and the more balanced cloud approach they foresee in the future. The discussion will touch data center, remote offices and IoT concerns, including governance and compliance in the cloud. Come join the session for an entertaining approach to this topic and bring home a new aspect on the Nutanix approach to cloud.
Ulf and Pål have 20+ years expertise in the field of designing and architecting infrastructure and software solutions for some of Northern Europe’s largest consumers of IT services. Their background includes work in the fields of converged, as well as hyperconverged infrastructure, ITSM and high-performance computing clusters (HPC). They currently both work for Nutanix Norway as Enterprise Cloud Advisors, where they are involved in projects to modernize and cloud enable solutions for Norwegian enterprises.

Digitization - This mysterious concept we hear about everywhere
The oil industry is no stranger to digital innovation. Since the 1980s, the industry has adopted digital technologies to drive greater efficiencies and open new ways of working. But today is different. Disruptive technologies are driving changes in both industry and society. Do we really understand what digitalization is, and what it means?
To us at Geoteric, we want drive greater efficiency, capture knowledge and integrate more data into the subsurface story. To achieve that, we need to introduce new analysis techniques and workflows. In this presentation, you will get a taste of what is now possible through the first of a new technology stream developed by Geoteric

Daglig leder, VesselAdmin
How digitalisation creates transparency and compliance in supply chain management
The use of digitalization radically changes one of the worlds most peculiar supply and demand markets, shipping and offshore. Where the nature of the market for centuries have constrained it from utilizing the potential vast amount of data, inhibited it from being transparent and in compliance.
Geir has a Master in Engineering from NTNU university and an Executive Master from BI. He started his career in shipping as a broker with Clarksons Platou. Geir brokered chartering and second hands sales within offshore, based in Norway and in USA. He stayed with the company for 6 years before moving on to a position as a Contract Advisor with Lundin Norway, a leading independent exploration and production company in Norway. After three years in Lundin Norway, Geir founded VesselAdmin together with Norselab.
Kristin von der Lippe
COO, Fieldmade AS
Enabling digital supply chains with industrial level 3D printing
Digital manufacturing methods will radically change how Energy companies source spare parts. Did you know that today, up to 80% of equipment in Oil&Gas inventories is discarded? Imagine if parts can be made on-demand without setting up new production lines or making any special tooling. Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, is a 100% digital manufacturing method that allows end users to buy parts just-in-time instead of just-in-case.
Kristin holds a Master of Technology and is a mechanical engineer with a passion for material science and smart manufacturing. Having worked eight years as a research scientist at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment, she has ample knowledge of system criticality. Together with the Fieldmade team, she has spent the last four years building spare-parts-on-demand solutions for clients with extreme requirements to uptime.
