Recent cybersecurity breaches have unmasked a vulnerability in oil and gas infrastructure that has operators looking to sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) programs to stay secure and operating. Through predictive analytics, operators are given greater visibility into their operations to develop actionable risk mitigation strategies that prevent unexpected downtime and the associated expense, according to SparkCognition Founder and CEO Amir Husain.

“There is no shortage of ways in which the energy industry can leverage their data and AI technology to improve operations,” Husain said in a recent interview with Hart Energy. “By employing a predictive solution on well data, customers can foresee events with enough time to take preventative action, saving millions of dollars in drilling costs and downtime, and alleviating, if not eliminating, overall nonproductive time.”
