Episode 165: The business value for data

Bill Abriel (SEG Co-Chair) and George Koperna (SPE Co-Chair) preview Energy in Data 2022 – How to Solve Data Challenges Without Breaking Your Systems or Your Budget.

This Energy in Data Conference is organized by AAPG, SEG, and SPE to bring together multi-disciplinary communities to discuss the data challenges and solutions in areas such as oil and gas operations, critical minerals, geothermal, carbon management, hydrogen, and water.

The goal of the conference is to provide a venue to identify and share potential solutions to common data-related issues such as:

  • Working with diverse data collections
  • Securely sharing and working with data
  • Harmonizing data sets from different sources
  • Emerging technology and innovation

In this helpful and insightful conversation, Bill and George highlight how the unique format will help participants discover solutions to their use cases, eloquently highlight the business value for data, discuss a few of the challenges applied geophysicists and petroleum engineers face when working with data, and much more. This is the episode for you if you want a quick tour to understand why data matters and how it can benefit your organization.
