Abu Dhabi-based artificial intelligence (AI) company AIQ and Halliburton’s Landmark announced a partner agreement under which AIQ’s RoboWell autonomous well control (AWC) platform will be made available through Halliburton’s Landmark iEnergy hybrid cloud.

Landmark’s iEnergy is designed to deploy, integrate, and manage exploration and production (E&P) applications and connect assets in public or private cloud environments. RoboWell will be included in the suite accessible via iEnergy and made available to customers worldwide.

“This collaboration will help progress our shared vision of how advanced AI solutions can transform the energy industry globally,” said AIQ CEO Christopher Cooper. “Collaborating with Halliburton is part of AIQ’s wider strategy to accelerate the availability of our transformative AI products globally to support the sector through autonomous and other AI-based innovations.”

RoboWell is the first AI-supported advanced process control platform for gas-lifted wells. AIQ and Halliburton have said the platform has already helped achieve up to 30% optimization in gas-lift consumption and increased production of existing wells by up to 5%.

“The combination of AIQ’s AI technology and Halliburton’s extensive industry expertise will help enable greater efficiency and maximize value for our customers’ assets,” said Nagaraj Srinivasan, senior vice president for Landmark, Halliburton digital solutions, and consulting. “This project exemplifies how Halliburton’s open architecture can help support enhanced efficiency, optimized operations, and drive future growth in the oil and gas industry.”
