Maana Presents at 2019 Decommissioning & Abandonment Summit

Digital Knowledge Pioneer Highlights WellLine Application During Exclusive Technology Showcase 

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 11, 2019 — Maana, the pioneer of digital knowledge technology, showcased WellLine, at the Decommissioning & Abandonment Summit, March 26-27, in Houston, Texas. Maana’s WellLine application generates a digital knowledge layer of events from historical data in silos.  It takes unstructured text, data from databases, and sensor events data and dynamically creates a digital knowledge layer of searchable timelines for wells. The WellLine knowledge layer is used to develop recommendation applications for decision making.

During the event, Jeff Dalgliesh, Maana’s Director of Oil Field Digital Transformation, participated in a Shark-Tank Technology Showcase highlighting the latest pioneering innovations to optimize P&A operations. The session, which featured executives from Shell, BP and ConocoPhillips, explored how new technologies can maximize decommissioning efficiencies, mitigate risk, and lead to higher quality abandonments.

To demonstrate how the Maana Knowledge Platform™ organizes industrial data and human expertise into digital knowledge, Maana exhibited WellLine – an application that can be applied across disciplines, including drilling, completions, workovers, and plug and abandonments. Users find insights from well lifecycle events and present them on an intelligent well timeline.

“We launched WellLine to serve as the Digital Knowledge Layer of wells on Microsoft Azure,” said Dalgliesh. “This technology enables our customers to mine text from tens of millions of historical drilling reports from thousands of wells, empowering operators to make faster decisions and better plan abandonments. We call this concept decision velocity.”

The two-day conference brought together the world’s leading experts on decommissioning, P&A and well intervention and served as a platform for the industry’s key decision makers. To learn more,
