Subsurface Data Engineering

Subsurface data is quite complex and preparing data for comprehensive analysis is quite challenging. The presentation will provide an overview of how the cloud and edge computing is significantly helping subsurface data management, governance, and faster data analysis. We will introduce you to various concepts of subsurface data engineering workflows including: data aggregation, data cleansing, data mapping and correlation, data governance for field data (i.e. seismic, geobodies), well level data (logs, operational data), and different datasets throughout the well life cycle from exploration to monitoring. There will be an example demonstration of the subsurface data engineering workflow.
