Schlumberger will work with the Russian company’s subsidiary Gazpromneft-Noyabrskneftegazgeofizika, supported by Gazprom Neft R&D centers.
In addition, Schlumberger will provide engineering support toGazprom Neft and train staff at the company’s operating units. This is a follow-up to a co-operation the two sides started in 2011.
More than 30 Gazprom Neft geologists have been sharing knowledge and experience with IBM Research Brazil machine-learning scientists, under the Cognitive Geologist project. This is another co-operation agreement designed to further development ofAI technologies such as knowledge-enhanced Machine Learning.
Both parties are looking to optimize analytical processes and characterize the value of information related to the most relevant geological models to help advance exploration workflows and automate model creation for exploration.
AI technologies will help automate routine operations and improve geological and geophysical data analysis for oil exploration or production activities, Gazprom Neft said.
