Maana to Present ‘AI-Driven Well Timelines for Well Optimization’ Paper at 2019 Offshore Technology Conference

HOUSTON, April 25, 2019 — Maana, the pioneer of digital knowledge technology, announced that it will present its WellLine application at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), May 6-9, at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.

At this premier energy event, Jeff Dalgliesh, Maana’s Director of Oil Field Digital Transformation, will present a paper titled ‘AI-Driven Well Timelines for Well Optimization,’ highlighting Maana’s research behind the latest cognitive innovations to optimize offshore operations. The paper explores how artificial intelligence and machine learning are used to digitally re-construct well histories, using both public and company-specific historical well data.

WellLine generates a digital knowledge layer of wells on Microsoft Azure and provides an intelligent timeline of significant well events from all phases of well operations such as drilling, production, completions, workovers, and plug and abandonments.

“The Offshore Technology Conference provides a great platform for sharing knowledge and innovations in the oil and gas industry. Maana in collaboration with Microsoft provides customers with a Digital Knowledge Layer of Wells on Azure using siloed, historical data,” said Dalgliesh. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to attend and present at this year’s conference.”

Celebrating 50 years, OTC’s flagship conference attracts energy experts from across the world and is recognized globally as the premier offshore technology event. To learn more about Maana’s WellLine application, visit
