Battelle Senior Research Leader Srikanta Mishra spoke at the Conference on Advances in Big Data Modeling, Computation and Analytics at Texas A&M University on September 23. His talk, “Big Data Applications in Petroleum Exploration and Production,” was one of several invited sessions on the topic of Big Data Modeling and Applications.
During his session, Dr. Mishra presented examples of big data analytics and machine learning applications in the field of petroleum exploration and development. He also shared successes in improving operational efficiencies and challenges in mainstreaming big data workflows.
The sold-out conference brought together researchers and data scientists from a wide range of industries to discuss the latest developments in data analytics and statistical modeling. Dr. Mishra’s was the only session to focus specifically on the oil & gas industry. “Big data” applications are becoming increasingly important for oil & gas developers as the industry seeks to make further improvements in well productivity and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).
Dr. Mishra is an Institute Fellow and Senior Research Leader at Battelle, where he is responsible for developing and managing a technology portfolio related to subsurface fluid dynamics modeling and data analytics activities for geological carbon storage, improved oil recovery and shale gas development projects.
