Ambyint announces expanded commitment with Equinor to optimize production operations in North Dakota

Posted by Ambyint on Jul 25, 2018 7:24:59 AM

Ambyint, the emerging player in AI-powered artificial lift and production optimization, and international energy major Equinor today announced that it will deploy Amybint’s technology on all rod pump wells in Equinor’s Bakken asset in North Dakota. The partnership comes at the end of a successful pilot and will expand to full field implementation in this asset.

Webinar Recap: Using IoT-Enabled Machine Learning to Autonomously Optimize Rod Pump Set Points

Posted by Ambyint on Jul 2, 2018 9:45:00 AM

As a former Marathon Oil production and reservoir engineer who has personally managed nearly 1,000 wells in the company’s core play, Jesse Filipi understands first hand how time-consuming set point optimization can be. During his time at Marathon, the company underwent a massive well expansion. But, despite the steep growth curve, Jesse felt that he and his team were not given the tools to be successful. Considering that the engineering team is effectively the revenue center of any production company, he knew there had to be a better way to effectively manage large scale well operations.

'Lights-Out' Manufacturing: Taking Uncertainty Out of the Equation

Posted by Ambyint on Jun 19, 2018 9:00:00 AM

For as long as there has been a future, people have been envisioning what it could look like. From flying cars that zip around sky cities to handheld devices that teleport you away just as fast as you can say “beam me up, Scottie!”, we have always had lofty goals in mind. But, now we live in a world that looks remarkably like something out of a sci-fi film, and nothing exemplifies just how far we’ve come quite like the ‘Lights-Out’ Factory. It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a factory that employs robots rather than humans, humming along in perfect synchronization, to the extent that one could simply turn the lights off without affecting the march of progress in the slightest. To break it down a little further, here is a helpful summary from PWC of what a lights-out factory is (and isn’t):

Ambyint Talks IoT, Machine Learning, and The Digital Revolution at GPS 2018

Posted by Ambyint on Jun 18, 2018 4:09:37 PM

Last week, Ambyint took the stage at the 2018 Global Petroleum Show (GPS). The annual conference and exhibition is one of Calgary's most highly anticipated events for oil and gas professionals across North America. This year's turnout did not disappoint, with over 1,000 exhibiting companies and ~50,000 attendees. In addition to maintaining a booth presence over the course of the three-day event, Ambyint hosted three speaking slots and an auxiliary breakfast seminar, successfully keeping Ambyint at top-of-mind throughout the week.

Automating the Routine with Advanced Analytics & Optimization (AAO) for Horizontal Wells

Posted by Ryan Benoit, Jesse Filipi, & Brian Arnst on Apr 6, 2018 9:00:00 AM

 

Situation

Artificial lift optimization is one of the core activities Production Engineers and Techs are asked to perform on a daily basis. Rod lift is the most widely used artificial lift type, deployed on horizontal and vertical wells alike. Due to the widespread use of rod pumps, consistent best practices have been established over time. When those operational best practices are adhered to, meaningful increases in field profitability of even the lowest producing wells have followed.
