Energy at re:Invent 2020

As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the world’s consumption of energy. To meet these growing energy needs, AWS provides energy companies the foundation to transform complex business and operational systems and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable energy future. AWS delivers the broadest and deepest cloud platform and industry solutions for energy companies to revamp legacy operations. Hear first hand from Energy customers about how AWS has helped them during re:Invent, with the first Energy session kicking off on December 1.

Energy sessions

ENR201 – OSDU: re:Inventing the Energy Data Platform (Tues. December 1, 1:45 – 2:15 p.m. PST)
Customer speaker: Johan Krebbers, Shell
AWS partnered with Shell to pioneer a Subsurface Data Platform solved a critical problem for geoscientists by democratizing data in disparate systems/ applications. Today, this initial Shell project has evolved into a global open-source Open Group OSDU forum with 160+ members, spanning energy companies, systems integrators, cloud and software vendors. The purpose of the OSDU Energy Data Platform is to provide the energy industry with streamlined exploration, development, and production workflows to increase the efficiency of the full value chain. In parallel, efforts are under way to expand the platform to support new energy such as wind and solar farms.

ENR202 – Data Transformation for Reservoir Characterization and Production Optimization (Wed. December 2, 8:45-9:15 a.m. PST)
Customer speaker: Anand Malgi & Justo Sanchez, ConocoPhillips
Profitable unconventional assets rely on comprehensive reservoir modelling to drive down capital costs and increase operational efficiency. ConocoPhillips Canada’s strategy focuses on early investment in well pad appraisal to optimize well stacking/spacing, fracking procedures, etc.. A cloud-based data platform and architecture was implemented to gather these large amounts of incoming data from the edge and transform it into a consistent, easily accessible, and performant cloud environment. This solution is now leading to an optimized full-field development plan while also creating the foundation for future real-time data gathering and analysis.

ENR203 – How Phillips 66 transformed their business with SAP on AWS (Thurs. December 3, 11:15-11:45 a.m. PST)
Customer speaker: Shawn Behounek, Phillips66
When Phillips 66 embarked on a journey to transform its hydrocarbon value chain with SAP’s new S/4HANA platform, it partnered with AWS, SAP, Accenture, and SUSE to deliver business value throughout the organization. With two of three key phases completed, learn how Phillips 66 partnered with AWS to innovate on the AWS platform, driving new services and features, in addition to leading innovations across partners and the industry.

IOT302 – Smart Vision for Predictive and Preventative Industrial Operations (Wed. December 9, 8:15-8:45 a.m. PST)
Customer speaker: Dave Finnochio, ConocoPhillips
Industrial facilities and assets can be complex, old, and the cost of error can be extremely high—yet the need for industrial digital transformation cannot be understated. With IoT and machine learning, industrial customers can combine machine data from a single line, factory, or a network of sites, to improve performance and efficiency by remotely and proactively identifying issues before they happen. Learn how ConocoPhillips is taking advantage of rapid IoT and ML innovations to integrate with on-premises data, process unstructured machine data, and generate predictive and preventive actions to increase operational efficiency.

DAT205 – Enterprise Database Transition: License-free cloud DBs (Wed. December 16, 2:45-3:15 p.m. PST)
Customer speaker: Cetin Karakus, bp
In this session, learn from bp’s Head of Quantitative and Analytical Solutions, Cetin Karakus, and his lead engineer on how bp transitioned a large-scale, mission-critical data analytics platform from a commercial database platform to the Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL open-source solution using the Database Freedom Program in an operationally fail-safe and isofunctional way. In this session, bp shares its experiences migrating with the help of AWS Database Freedom and Aurora PostgreSQL engineers and lessons learned along the way.
