HOUSTON, TX (September 28th,2022)
Every year, ROGII conducts a global geosteering competition called the Geosteering World Cup, where experts in the field of geosteering compete to be the best in the world and be crowned the champion. In this competition, all participants drill their own well through a pre-defined 3-dimensional geologic model, receiving simulated data in real-time at consistent increments. Using the data, they interpret the wellbore position and predict where it should bein order to drill the best possible well. With participants from over 20 countries,the only way to ensure that this competition runs without any issues is to use our Solo Cloud solution hosted on AWS.
This year ROGII‘s 4th Annual Geosteering World Cup was the biggest event to date. The competition consisted of over 200 participants and 1 machine learning robot. During the event, there were roughly 10,000 changes made to the cloud every minute, with a processing time of about 0.2 seconds per change. Participants drilled approximately 800 simulated wells in 1.5 hours, which is equivalent to 2 weeks of drilling by all United States operators. To put this on a footagescale, that is about 4 million lateral feet drilled. At the end of the event, analytics provided by AWS was used to identify the champion based on the function of in-zone percentage and high ROP. Though not the winner, ROGII’s robot placed 26th place,which is a big leap for machine learning.
The data from the competition is publicly available for data analytics/machine learning tasks because it is stored on Solo Cloud. Not only is this competition a great opportunity for high-load testing and a way to test and improve automation through machine learning, it is a great to way bring people together. ROGII’s goal is to bring data and people together to continue to strive for excellence. SoloCloud, powered by AWS, makes this possible.
