    中国石化新闻网讯 据油气新闻网站7月2日消息 全球石油和天然气行业要想从部署人工智能、大数据和分析、机器人和量子计算等先进数字技术中获益,就需要接受新的商业思维和新的数字技能。

    BP负责数字科学与工程的高级副总裁莫拉格?沃森在参加最新的阿布扎比石油展能源对话时表示,石油和天然气行业在利用数字技术的可能性方面一直慢于其他行业,我们需在能源转型中展开竞争并取得成功。

    沃森表示:“对我来说,这不仅仅是技术问题,许多技术已经在相当快的轨道上运行了一段时间。这个行业必须开放思考,我们如何才能以不同的方式做事?”

    “这并不是说这里有10个机器人会为你工作,且这样并不行得通。你必须有正确的商业心态,才能让技术从根本上改变你做事的方式。”

    沃森强调,石油和天然气行业仍处于数字技术如何帮助其应对能源转型带来的挑战的开端,他表示,企业应在行业外寻找如何利用数字技术帮助自己保持成功的创新想法。

    沃森举例称,BP投资500万美元在Satelytics公司(一家基于云的地理空间分析软件公司),该公司利用先进的光谱图像和机器学习技术监测环境变化,包括甲烷排放量。沃森以此为例,说明BP如何在创新、改变游戏规则的技术和业务方面进行战略投资可以帮助它重新构想全球能源系统。

    BP invests $5m in a cloud-based software firm

    The global oil and gas industry needs to embrace a new business mindset and new digital skills if it is to reap the benefits from deploying advanced digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, big data and analytics, robotics and quantum computing.

    Participating in the latest Adipec Energy Dialogue, Morag Watson, BP senior vice president of digital science and engineering, said the oil and gas industry has been slower than other industries to open up to the possibilities of leveraging digital technologies in order to compete and succeed in the energy transition.

    "For me it is not just about the technology," Watson said. "Many of the technologies have been on a reasonably fast trajectory for a while. The industry has to be open to thinking, how can we do things differently?

    "It doesn't just happen by saying here are 10 robots that are going to do your work for you. It just doesn't work that way. You have to have the right business mindset to make it possible for the technology to radically change how you do things."

    Highlighting the oil and gas industry is still at the beginning of how digital technologies can help it meet the challenges being created by the energy transition, Watson said companies should look outside the industry for innovative ideas on how to use digital technologies to help them stay successful.

    Watson cited BP's $5 million investment in a Satelytics - a cloud-based geospatial analytics software company that uses advanced spectral imagery and machine learning to monitor environmental changes, including methane emissions - as an example of how BP is making strategic investments in innovative, game-changing technologies and businesses that can help it reimagine the global energy system.
