Big data and machine learning for prediction of corrosion in pipelines

Big data and machine learning for prediction of corrosion in pipelines

In this blog post we will look at some of the achievements during a 5-day machine learning hackathon we arranged recently. We were curious about one of the key concepts in our current strategy – could we manage to become a bit more “data smart” ...

Quantifying the benefits of a Condition monitoring

Quantifying the benefits of a Condition monitoring

Deviating from our typical oil and gas examples, let us discuss the benefits of condition monitoring (CM) in the mining industry – as we’ll see, we can derive the same benefits when applying RAM analysis as we saw with oil and gas assets. Cond ...
