How to digitalise exploration day 1

What digital initiatives will help exploration to be more effective and efficient?

Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Kuala Lumpur, ADAX, Bangsar South

There is much enthusiasm around the idea of digitalising exploration, but many different ideas about what it means in practise. Perhaps there are two extremes. At one end we have master data management, with a need for high quality core data. At the other end we have unsupervised machine learning, setting algorithms loose on data to see what they come up with.

Machine learning needs good master data management before you can start – and the machine learning should never be entirely unsupervised. Machine learning results which look like nonsense, or which defy human understanding, should probably be treated as such.

Digitalisation also includes integrating and analysing data. This generally requires an understanding of what the data is actually about. Machine learning can help, but only if you understand the processes it is following.

At our 8th Kuala Lumpur forum in October, over October 2-3, we’ll gather together ideas and perspectives about what machine learning in exploration means, how to use it to deliver value for an oil and gas company, and what business opportunities there may be, for individuals, consultancies and software companies.
