Gazprom Neft presents innovations at CERAWeek Global Energy Forum

Technology solutions developed by Gazprom Neft in collaboration with its partners from MIPT Information Center, Skoltech and ADL Completions have been listed among the 100 best industry projects according to Innovation Agora expert session at CERAWeek 2019 Global Energy Forum.

At the forum, Russian developers presented innovative solutions in the field of machine learning and optimization of well drilling processes and subsurface engineering operations. Already today, smart assistants enable Gazprom Neft engineers to update the reservoir geology based on indirect parameters in the course of drilling and, if necessary, make the decision to adjust the drilling trajectory in real time. This helps cut drilling costs and time.

«The fact that Gazprom Neft’s projects are included in the agenda of prestigious Innovation Agora session demonstrates that the quality of Russian solutions is highly appreciated. Our innovative technologies have already proved their efficiency: the machine learning algorithm finds optimal scenarios much faster by making thousands of computations in a short timeframe. Artificial intelligence system that learns from the experience of our company’s experts helps us extract oil that was previously inaccessible», says Aleksey Govzich, Executive Director for New Technologies at Gazpromneft Science and Technology Center.


Innovation Agora is a specialized session of the CERAWeek forum that brings together the community of designers, investors, CEOs of energy corporations, and national regulatory agencies. The session’s agenda is traditionally focused on breakthrough technology trends of finding new ways and solutions that help the global energy industry evolve. Every year, the session experts make up a list of high-profile projects in the field of artificial intelligence, big data analytics, robotics, blockchain, digital engineering and other technologies of Industry 4.0.
