Machine Learning in Oil & Gas - Thematic Research

Machine Learning in Oil & Gas - Thematic Research


Machine learning is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology which allows machines to learn by using algorithms to interpret data from connected ‘things’ to predict outcomes and learn from successes and failures. It is also the technology most likely to allow machines to ultimately surpass the intelligence levels of humans.

Oil and Gas industry is going through a challenging phase after having to face disruptions in the form of sluggish oil prices and opposition to hydrocarbon exploration and production from environmentalists. In such a scenario, Oil and Gas companies are increasingly turning towards digital technologies, such as machine learning, to improve operational efficiency, cost savings, and reducing environmental impact of exploration and production activities through predictive maintenance.

The most prominent application for machine learning presently, is predictive maintenance. Sensor data related to drilling wells, pipeline infrastructure and other critical equipment is monitored regularly and assessed to predict equipment failures and plan maintenance activities proactively.

Real-time data generated from various industrial activities is being captured and analyzed using machine learning algorithms to enable field operators in taking informed decisions for achieving higher productivity and cost savings, while also ensuring the overall health and safety of the assets.
