Oil and Gas Exploration Challenges

Oil and gas exploration requires gathering, processing, and analyzing vast volumes of subsurface data from multiple structured and unstructured sources. Companies collect seismic data, drilling logs, wireline logs, coring data, and other geophysical data for years, which makes hydrocarbon exploration, data management and processing challenging tasks.

Data complexity and diversity prompt operators to stick to a time-consuming approach using inefficient tools for the data analysis process, interpretation, and management. With the growing number of projects and tight deadlines, the lack of automated workflows makes hydrocarbon exploration expensive and ineffective. Energy companies face major challenges:

  • Imprecise estimation of existing and new reserves
  • Low reservoir recovery rate
  • Inherent uncertainty caused by factors such as data resolution or instrument accuracy that may lead to wrong conclusions
  • Expensive subsurface data processing that requires High-Performance Computing (HPC) results in a very long data processing time
  • Manual analysis, correlation, and collation of multiple structured and unstructured data sets is time-consuming and may lead to wrong decisions
  • Lack of clarity of the dynamic reservoir conditions
