Subsurface Data Modeling

Subsurface data modeling plays a crucial role in the energy industry, particularly in oil and gas exploration and production, as well as in the emerging field of geothermal energy. Here are several reasons why it’s important:

  • Resource Identification: Helps identify and quantify potential resources.
  • Drilling Efficiency: Makes drilling operations more efficient and reduces the risk of dry wells.
  • Risk Management: Assess and manage risks, such as fault lines, instability, and groundwater contamination.
  • Reservoir Management: Helps understand how reservoirs change over time as resources are extracted.
  • Economic Planning: Helps determine the feasibility and potential profitability of extraction projects, guiding investments and operations.
  • Environmental Impact: Evaluates potential environmental impacts of energy extraction.

Upstream Analysis

The energy industry generates enormous amounts of data to aid locating and extracting oil and gas resources. Qumulo’s Scale Anywhere™ platform helps you store, process, and analyze this data as quickly and efficiently as possible.
