High Performance Computing: An Essential Resource for O&G Exploration Production

SESSION: Thursday HPC Impact Showcase Presentations

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcase & Emerging Technologies

TIME: 11:00AM - 11:40AM

SESSION CHAIR: David Halstead

Speaker(s):Henri Calandra

ROOM:Show Floor - 233 Theater


For several decades, Oil and Gas industry has been continuously challenged to produce more hydrocarbons in response to the growing world demand for energy. Finding new economical Oil traps has become increasingly challenging. The industry must invest in the design and definition of new advanced exploration and production tools. Application of High Performance Computing to Oil and Gas has dramatically increased the effectiveness of seismic exploration and reservoir management. Significantly enhanced computational algorithms and more powerful computers have provided a much better understanding of the distribution and description of complex geological structures, opening new frontiers to unexplored geological areas. Seismic depth imaging and reservoir simulation are the two main domains that take advantage of the rapid evolution of high performance computing. Seismic depth imaging provides invaluable and highly accurate subsurface images reducing the risk of deep and ultra-deep offshore seismic exploration. The enhanced computational reservoir simulation models optimize and increase the predictive capabilities and recovery rates of the subsurface assets. With an order of magnitude increase in computing capability reaching an exaflop by the end of this decade, the reduction of computing time combined with rapid growth in data sets and problem sizes will provide far richer information to analyze. While next generation codes are developed to give access to new information of unrivaled quality, these codes will also present new challenges in building increasingly complex and integrated solutions and tools to achieve the exploration and production goals.
