PNEC 2016: NetApp Data Management for Exploration and Production

By Peter Ferri, Global Energy Industry Director, NetApp


The most important asset for any oil and gas company is data. With a seemingly limitless demand for energy and harder-to-find resources today, oil companies are tasked with exploring more challenging areas to exploit deeper or unconventional deposits. Given these sets of challenges, data has become a precious commodity for oil and gas companies. With data, energy that was inaccessible before can now be within reach.


Join NetApp this week in Houston, Texas for PNECthe 20th International Conference on Petroleum Data Integration, Information and Management and learn how to maximize the value of your data. PNEC focuses exclusively on data and information management for Exploration and Production (E&P) and NetApp will be at booth #313 where you can speak to the experts to find out how to:


  • Enable the NetApp Data Fabric for oil and gas workflows
  • Modernize E&P data infrastructure
  • Accelerate E&P applications and workflows
  • Leverage the cloud for E&P application environments


Learn about NetApp Solutions for Oil and Gas

The needs of the dynamic oil and gas enterprise inevitably change—often quickly and dramatically—requiring unprecedented flexibility. Allowing a mobile workforce to visualize the latest subsurface data has become essential but feeding data to visualization workstations has become difficult. NetApp collaborated with partners to deliver an integrated solution that’s fast and easy to deploy—FlexPod Datacenter with Citrix XenDesktop and NVIDIA GRID is designed to enhance collaboration and accelerate decision-making by providing a mobile workforce to visualize the latest subsurface data in 3D—wherever they happen to be: local, or in a remote office. It keeps valuable datasets secure inside the datacenter, while extending 3D visualization to geoscientists and engineers around the world.


Weather a company deploys NetApp flash for oil and gas exploration, clustered Data ONTAP®, an integrated solution, or a NetApp FAS storage system, NetApp customers like Apache are experiencing the accelerated performance, scalability and reliability they need while keeping costs down.
