In its quest to meet the world’s ever-increasing demand for energy, the oil and gas industry has become one of the largest users—and leading innovators—of high performance computing. As natural resources deplete, and the cost of accessing them increases, highly sophisticated computational modeling becomes an essential tool in energy exploration and development.
Advanced computational techniques provide a high-fidelity model of the subsurface, which gives oil and gas companies a greater understanding of the geophysics of the region they propose to explore. A clearer picture of the earth enables targeted drilling, reduced acquisition costs, and minimal environmental impact. In an industry …Read more
