Information Management in the Oil Industry

So, here I am, sitting at my PC and watching the Bill Gates keynote at this year’s WinHEC (yep, I know that I’m a sad case). And here’s Alan Nunns of Chevron, talking about information management in the oil industry. That brought back memories. One of the challenges the oil industry has is dealing with the torrent of information – for example, an oil refinery can generate up to a terabyte of data per day. Nunns was touting what Chevron and Microsoft had done together in information management and introducing a standardised desktop infrastructure for Chevron’s decision makers. Hmm, that reminds me of the sterling work done by folks such as David and Johan in my old company…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
