HPC: Fueling Innovation in the Oil and Gas Industry

first_imgNote: This is the third and final blog in the Dell EMC HPC vertical blog series. For more information, visit past blogs on HPC in healthcare and manufacturing.As the economic opportunities, demand and stakes continue to rise, the oil and gas industry attracts some of the leading scientific minds in the world. Gone are the days of intuition and trial and error in favor of incredibly advanced, sophisticated seismic exploration techniques that can pinpoint hydrocarbons with unprecedented accuracy. But the recent emphasis on more complex and challenging offshore and on-shore production has brought with it a new set of difficult seismic challenges. As the risks, rewards and global competition have ratcheted up, so too has the pressure on scientists to deliver even greater precision and ensure optimal production.High performance computing (HPC) has played a critical role in oil and gas industry innovation for more than 30 years because the data sizes and physics computations are incredibly compute intensive. It seems that every seven or eight years additional compute, storage and network throughput capacity increases, so an algorithm that’s been laying around for a while can finally be put to use. Over the years, some truly incredible scientific discoveries have revolutionized oil and gas exploration. One of the earliest seismic migration methods, Kirchhoff Time Migration, required what was for that time great amounts of compute, but allowed us to “see” beneath the ground.  Then Kirchhoff depth migration came along providing even finer gradation producing HD-like images, and reverse time migration is allowing oil and gas companies to visualize what’s under salt with incredible accuracy, but these require 10 to 12 times more compute and data than any other techniques.These rapidly evolving research and technical computing workloads are now pushing the limits of many HPC systems, creating severe computing bottlenecks and major performance issues. We are now also seeing data management and storage requirements becoming a concern for customers. With the integration of legacy Dell and legacy EMC portfolios, Dell EMC as a combined company has an even broader set of offerings designed to solve these customer challenges.From workstations to large clusters, Dell EMC is proud to work with some of the world’s top oil and gas providers and some emerging ones to address all aspects of HPC, enabling them to scale by choosing with confidence when, where and how to integrate new HPC capabilities to complement or replace existing capacity. We ensure that all aspects of our oil and gas customers’ HPC systems are interconnected and impact their overall business success, performance and productivity. By looking at the whole system and these interconnections, our future-ready infrastructure of servers, storage and networking solutions ensures that HPC clusters are prepared for the new exploration technologies we all know are coming.Some of these innovations focus on efficiency rather than exploration accuracy. For example, machine learning could have a huge impact on the industry and bring with it massive new compute demands. By learning how to perform certain difficult and expensive tasks such as seismic velocity modeling and automating those processes, computers could save oil and gas companies tremendous amounts of time and money.  Velocity Picking is expensive both in time and money during the flow of a seismic operation.  An auto-picker would shorten the time spent in the hands of geophysical technicians and would become another calculated portion of the job flow. Also, increased processing power can help eliminate redundant work to ensure better computing utilization, which is critical for profitability.For oil and gas companies of all sizes, continued success in a volatile market will depend on innovation that only HPC can support. HPC in the cloud is gaining momentum so smaller companies can compete by handling huge jobs. As the scientists in the industry continue to develop breakthrough technologies at a breakneck pace that get us closer to the elusive goal of perfectly pinpointing oil and gas reserves, flexible and scalable HPC systems will be more critical than ever.For additional information on Dell EMC HPC offerings, visit the following:@DellHPC on TwitterDell HPC Customer Case StudiesDell HPC CommunityDell4Enterprise Blogs:High performance computing drives innovation for manufacturersAdvancing healthcare innovation through high performance computinglast_img read more

Jon Bon Jovi Whats On The Table For The Hungry

first_imgOn Saturday, August 25, Top Chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio and his wife filmmaker Lori Silverbush, rocker Jon Bon Jovi his wife Dorothea Hurley, Susan Burden, and philanthropist Avis Richards and Marathon hedge fund co-founder Bruce Richards hosted the 2nd annual “What’s on the Table?”, an event to benefit the anti-hunger programs of the United Way of New York City.Over $200,000 was raised to benefit UWNYC’s work to reduce hunger and provide more nutritious food for struggling children, families and seniors.In addition to Colicchio and Bon Jovi, guests included chef Katie Lee, supermodel Hilary Rhoda, CNN anchor Alina Cho, Estee Lauder head John Demsey, Dan Abrams, actress Natasha Bell, Royal Pains actor Rupak Ginn, Bloomberg TV host Matt Miller, Dayssi and Paul Olarte de Kanavos, Duane Hampton, Louise Grunwald, Esther Newberg, Charmaine and Carter Burden, and Stephanie Hirsch. United Way of New York City’s Jennifer Jones Austin, Senior Vice-President for Community Investment and Kevin Taylor, Senior Vice President for Institutional Advancement were also in attendance.Held at the Southampton home of Avis and Bruce Richards, “What’s on the Table?” emphasized the need not only to help the hungry in New York City access to food in times of emergency but to ensure that food they receive is fresh and nutritious. In keeping with the theme, guests dined on culinary delights from five of Tom Colicchio’s restaurants. Chefs from Colicchio and Sons, Craft, Riverpark, Craftsteak and Topping Rose each offered two dishes featuring a local, in-season ingredient. These included zucchini (ricotta stuffed and fried zucchini blossoms), corn (corn chowder), and raspberries (raspberry cobbler), among others.In their speeches, Colicchio, Bon Jovi, both Richards, and Ms. Silverbush – director of the forthcoming documentary about hunger titled “A Place at the Table” – stressed the critical nature of the issue hunger in America. One startling statistic revealed is that 1 in 5 children go hungry daily in the United States. Guests were encouraged to call their Congressional representatives to protect funding in the Farm Bill for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which puts healthy food on the table for 46 million Americans each month.100% of the evening’s net proceeds went to the United Way’s campaign to significantly reduce hunger in New York City. A portion of the funds raised came from an exciting auction presided over by Cate Smit, who sold a surprise item: a private dinner cooked by Tom Colicchio with a performance by Jon Bon Jovi at the bidder’s home. It went for $40,000.last_img read more

ExxonMobil Enters Preliminary Gas Agreement With AGDC

first_imgDNR commissioner Andy Mack: “This agreement continues to demand that our resources at Point Thomson are developed to the maximum benefit of all Alaskans, and also aligns the state and industry in a new way as the Alaska LNG Project advances.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ExxonMobil, announced today, that the company has agreed to enter into a preliminary deal to sell its natural gas to the Alaska LNG project. State officials said the details of the agreement with ExxonMobil, including terms for price and volume, are confidential. According to a release from the AGDC it anticipates purchasing ExxonMobil’s share of 30 trillion cubic feet of gas from the two fields. Point Thomson contains approximately 25 percent of the North Slope’s discovered natural gas resources. The Gas Sales Precedent Agreement was signed by the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. and ExxonMobil, while a Letter of Understanding was signed by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, ExxonMobil and BP to “better align the Point Thomson field production timeline with the Alaska LNG project, which is run by AGDC.”last_img read more
