Veronica Torres – BRU21 research

Verónica Torres is a PhD student in BRU21 – NTNU’s Research and Innovation Program in Digital and Automation Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry. She develops digital tools to efficiently organize and automatically analyze well log data. The objective is to increase data analysis efficiency in exploration workflows through modern computational methods, e.g. machine learning and artificial intelligence, combined with cross-disciplinary subsurface expertise.

This BRU21 project is sponsored by Aker BP ASA. Read more about BRU21 and Veronicas research here https://www.ntnu.edu/bru21/

BRU21: Digitalisering og automatisering innen olje og gass

Som oppfølging av BRU21-kartleggingen blant olje- og gasselskaper, leverandører, organisasjoner og myndigheter, se rapport, etablerer NTNU nå et nytt forskningsprogram kalt «Digitalisering og automatisering innen olje og gass». Programmet tenkes i første omgang finansiert av industrien og NTNU, men man vil etter hvert søke om forskningsrådsstøtte. En gruppe sammensatt av personer fra flere institutt ved NTNU og Arild Nystad, er i disse dager på rundtur hos selskaper som vil delta i finansieringen.  Bildet viser møte hos Lundin i går, som vil finansiere flere ph.d.-kandidater.
