Energy Exploration with High Performance Computing

White Papers > Life Sciences > Energy Exploration with High Performance Computing

As energy exploration becomes increasingly challenging, oil and gas firms deploy ever more powerful computing and storage solutions to stay ahead.

With more than 70 percent of the world’s oil and gas production coming from mature fields, energy companies face a growing challenge with extracting natural resources under increasingly difficult conditions. To adapt, they are applying sophisticated survey techniques and cutting-edge science and technology to glean the location and character of gas and petroleum deposits.

Working from highly sophisticated seismic surveys, algorithms, accelerators, models and more, energy firms use high-performance computing (HPC) to process, analyze and visualize data. The amount of data is extreme. In fact, HPC data centers routinely host and manage petabytes (quadrillions of bytes) of data, with even more massive jobs on the horizon.

The task of processing and interpreting all this data falls to powerful, high-performance servers, workstations and other types of supercomputers. By understanding the challenge faced by the oil and gas sector, and applying the latest technology advancements to decision-making, companies can improve their opportunities for success.
