Analytics Autonomy using Petrons

Nitin Chaudhary  •  

The most powerful concept, which instantly captures an engineer’s attention, is the Petron. Petrons are the most intuitive, efficient, and natural way to interact with oil and gas data. There is no need to combine spreadsheets, run JOINs in SQL, or create a specialized BI view to form an integrated dataset. Instead, disparate data sources loaded into a Petron are auto-normalized, classified, and contextualized.

The result is Analytics Autonomy.

Do valuable work

In oil and gas, almost every data source depends on the others: lateral length informs decline curves, completion intensity impacts well spacing, bit aggressiveness impacts failure rates. Today, when an engineer wants to investigate an interesting question, most of his/her time is spent doing custodial work on the appropriate interconnected datasets. With Petrons, data is delivered on-demand to users in an analytics-ready format.

Add new data types

There are a plethora of new measurement technologies on the market today: DNA tracers, electromagnetics, offset pressure gauges, etc. The challenge lies in integrating these powerful new datatypes into a model that already exists. Outside of images in presentations, it is extremely difficult to incorporate these new measurements into the analysis. Petrons empower engineers to incorporate new measurements into their analysis with just a few clicks.

Scale insights

Engineers are perpetually identifying new areas for improvement and performing analysis to support their conclusions. However, it is difficult to scale a single engineer’s work product in a format that is usable by others. Petrons are a shared workspace that is automatically populated with each engineer’s latest models and work products.

Accelerate time to value

By eliminating analytics friction, Petrons are empowering engineers to 1) solve problems faster and 2) deliver new workflows to their peers. Organizations can move new ideas from the whiteboard to the field faster than ever before, operationalizing high-value engineering insights in days, not months.

By eliminating tedious, data normalization work while quickly delivering insights to the business, Petrons transform engineering teams from cost centers to profit centers.
