Industrial Flash Storage for Oil and Gas Applications

 

The power and energy sector is a dynamic one that has undergone substantial changes over the years. In modern times, oil and gas companies rely on advanced, cutting-edge technology to collect data from sensors, monitor assets, and plan strategic operations. Oil and gas companies also typically rely on big data analytics to conduct thorough reviews of seismic, drilling, and production data sets. The result of the integration of advanced technology into the power and energy sector is better efficiency and higher production quotas with fewer wasted resources. However, the increased demand for computing power is also associated with an elevated demand for better, more rugged data storage solutions.

 

The Need for Big Data Analytics in Oil and Gas Applications

In recent years, low crude oil prices prompted significant cost-cutting measures in major energy companies, including Chevron, BP, and Exxon. Now, however, these major companies are investing billions in expanding their drilling projects. In order to expeditiously expand drilling projects, oil and gas companies need to rely on big data analytics to develop strategic plans and remain competitive. Some of the data points that require analysis include the following:

  • 3D seismic charts
  • Drill head statistics
  • Historic well and field data
  • Lease maps

 

Oil and gas companies must store, access, and analyze enormous amounts of data quickly and reliably in order to determine where to drill, how far down to drill, and how to drill more safely and efficiently. The pressing need for big data analytics in the oil and gas industry is driving the need for industrial flash storage solutions in the power and energy sector.

 

How Industrial Flash Storage Rises to Meet the Challenge

Oil and gas companies often operate in extreme environmental settings. In order to reliably collect and store data sets from sensors in the field, oil and gas companies need rugged flash storage devices capable of withstanding extremes of temperature, vibration, and shock. When project engineers choose an industrial flash storage device, such as a solid state drive (SSD), it should ideally have an operating temperature range between negative 40 and 85 degrees Celsius, as well as shock resiliency of 10G, 11msec-Sawtooth Waveform, and vibration resiliency of 7.7 GRMS.

 

Oil and gas companies choose to rely on Delkin for their data storage needs because of our flash storage solutions’ proven durability, resilience, and ruggedness. Our U.S.-based team designs and manufactures multiple form factor flash storage devices that are resistant to the effects of extreme temperature ranges, vibration, and shock. Get in touch with our Customer Applications team today for assistance choosing appropriate industrial flash storage for oil & gas applications.
