To develop improved predictive models of complex real-world problems, one needs to pursue a balanced perspective. Ultimately, the physics we know needs to rely on data to unmask the physics that we do not yet know.
The market may be different from what we have previously experienced, but the path to a successful digital transformation is durable and the core principles of success have not changed.
Thirty three years in the oil and gas industry and I never get tired of watching a sunset. This photo was taken from the helideck of the Ocean Onyx mobile offshore drilling unit which is currently drilling for Beach Energy, offshore Australia. I’m looking out over the Otway Basin and the vast expanse of the Southern Ocean. How far south are we? Well if I was to get in…
I’m proud to share the nice celebration of a big milestone recently achieved: 100,000 b/d produced in Iara license by the floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel P-68. Congratulations to Total E&P Do Brasil and all involved. It is only the beginning of this incredible adventure.
