Improve E&P Research to Boost Reserves and Production

Exploration and Production (E&P) —referred to as the upstream sector — is the first step in the oil and gas value chain. As such, it's an important process involving the study of the geological characteristics of reservoirs in order to boost reserves and production, in turn building energy security. However, as oil and gas reserves around the world diminish, conventional E&P is no longer fit for task.

It's now critical that the E&P process be improved, using techniques like 3D seismic data exploration and high-precision processing and interpretation to support research. To this end, Huawei has integrated state-of-the-art technologies — from 5G and advanced storage systems to High-Performance Computing (HPC) platforms, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the Cloud — to intelligently upgrade oil and gas E&P, helping enterprises roll out far more efficient and far more intelligent research models.

E&P HPC and storage

The 3D seismic data exploration technology generates precise imaging in order to provide better stratigraphic information about cracks and rivers. High-precision algorithms are used to further improve seismic imaging, giving geologists a much clearer view of stratums.

But technology like this has a massive impact on the volume of data oil and gas companies must manage. As a result, such enterprises need more computing power and better processing capacity — and they need it fast. Because conventional systems simply aren't up to the job: they're slow, can't run concurrent tasks, and lack the space required to store massive amounts of data.

Huawei's E&P Storage Solution provides an answer. Offering stable, reliable, secure, and high performing storage devices, the solution supports seismic data processing, interpretation, and reservoir numerical simulation. It speeds up well exploration and can even improve the success rate, resulting in increases for both reserves and production.
