Title:

Using GPUs and HPC for Oil and Gas Exploration

Abstract:

Oil and Gas companies have long used high-performance computing to aid in the search for hydrocarbons. However, complex geologies have pushed the fundamental computing requirements to new highs. The first part of this talk will give an overview of the challenges and drivers of the industry. Then, we will look at the role of HPC in seismic modeling, imaging, and inversion. Finally, we will investigate the reasons for the growing use of GPUs and future directions for HPC in the Oil & Gas industry.

Speaker Info:

Francis Grady is a software engineer in the HPC Group at Schlumberger. He received his MS and BS degrees in Computer Science from the University of Oxford.
