Supercomputing and Artificial Intelligence

We increase the efficiency and precision of our operations through the use of cutting-edge digital technologies, such as supercomputing and artificial intelligence.

Digital tools for competitiveness and energy transition

Supercomputing and artificial intelligence are all the more indispensable for the competitiveness of our operations and the development of our decarbonisation technologies. Digital geosciences, combined with the computing power of our supercomputers and our proprietary algorithms, allow us to maintain high efficiency in our exploration. The digital transformation involves every business activity and process, supporting our evolution to respond to the energy transition. Artificial intelligence also supports us in safety at work through tools that prevent and manage hazardous situations, and in the protection of the forest heritage of Ruanda, where a cross-sectoral collaboration is underway where precision and monitoring technologies have a decisive role.

Geology and supercomputers

By means of digital geosciences, we study the nature of the subsoil and pinpoint possible fields. We process data and information, reconstructing the geological characteristics of deep layers. We use the High Performance Computer layer 5 (HPC5), one of the most powerful and sustainable computers in the world, with which we are able to identify new natural gas reserves more efficiently and study new energy sources. Thanks to this supercomputer we can create three-dimensional models of the subsoil more quickly and study solutions to increase the efficiency of renewable energy.

Major projects in artificial intelligence and data analysis

Research programmes, applications and solutions to improve efficiency at every level.

Collaborations in supercomputing

We collaborate with PASQAL, a company that produces quantum computers, to optimise the performance and energy efficiency of assets, and we participate in the National Research Centre in High Performance Computing, Big Data and Quantum Computing.

 

Safety at work

We extended the Safety Pre-sense tool to all lines of business to increase worker safety. Using artificial intelligence, the system predicts recurring dangerous situations and implements corrective actions.

Data analysis applied to reducing emissions

We use data analytics to support our strategic decisions such as, for example, in the area of bioenergy for biofuel production, by searching for marginal land where we can begin cultivation, as was the case for the first agri-hub in Kenya, set up to grow raw materials to be made into vegetable oil.

In addition, digitisation of processes is underway in CO2 offsetting activities, such as in the area of Carbon Offset Solutions, supporting REDD+ projects for forest conservation and protection.

Applications in robotics

In the field of robotics, mechatronics and automation, we have developed a system of innovative nanosensors to detect potential emissions in areas difficult to reach by personnel or other robotic means. We improved the Clean Sea submarine system, a robot that monitors submarine installations and water quality for CO2 capture and storage (CCS) activities. We use robots with legs and computer vision algorithms for industrial site inspections.
