10:00 am Morning Coffee & Speed Networking

10:40 am achine Learning & Advanced Analytics at Scale: A Platform Approach


  • Data Science (DS) solutions need to lead to actions to realize value. Production DS is not only about algorithms: data pipeline development, feature engineering, model validation and lifecycle management are fundamental components. 
  • At Equinor, we are approaching DS from a platform perspective. We solve different problem sets with a common “mold”. As a result, we reduce our implementation costs. We call this methodology epsilon-cost scaling. 
  • This is being applied to operational planning and predictive maintenance for instance. Details will be discussed including: 
  • Data as a critical asset 
  • Platform approach to DS 
  • Epsilon-cost scaling advantages & constraints 
  • Focus on speed to build business impact 

11:20 am Increasing Production of (Data) Assets using Data Virtualization


  • Review the benefits of separating data access from data storage as a fundamental principle in achieving flexibility and control in exploiting your data assets. 
  • Learn how data virtualization has been used in analytics use cases from surface to subsurface including facilities, exploration, drilling, production and operations. 
  • Increase real-time, secure, performant, and shared data access across all your Upstream data sources (lakes and warehouses included) through a logical design. 

11:40 am Use Case – Utilizing Subsurface Analytics to Improve Critical Decisions Within Exploration 


  • Visualize how analytical tools dedicated to subsurface imaging support decision making within exploration. 
  • Dissect subsurface case studies comprehend how analytics are enhancing subsurface findings.
