Scientific Computing in Oil & Gas Industry

T. Matthey received his PhD in Computer Science applied to Molecular Dynamics at the University of Bergen, Norway in 2002. During his PhD he worked on a joint program on Molecular Dynamics with the University of Notre Dame,In, USA. From2002 to 2005, he worked at Unifob/University of Bergen, Norway as Post Doc on Molecular Dynamicsand Parallel Computing. In 2005 he joined SPT Group, Bergen, Norway and worked on developing desktop drilling software (Drillbench, Advanced Blowout Control and OLGA) with emphasize on scientific computing and drilling simulator engines. He joined Schlumberger in 2013 when SPT Group got acquired by Schlumberger.




This talk shall give some insights on how scientific computing plays its role in the oil &  gas industry and how we apply it.

And some examples to illustrate how simulation software can help us to make oil & gas industry more safe.
