Petrolern LLC Gained DOE Good Subsurface Visualization Platform Prize


Petrolern LLC, a modern Atlanta-based inexperienced vitality expertise firm, was introduced because the winner of a significant software program growth contest by the U.S. Division of Power’s Workplace of Fossil Power and Carbon Administration (FECM) to help its SMART (Science-informed Machine Studying to Speed up Actual Time Choices within the Subsurface) Initiative. Petrolern will obtain $150,000, with a chance to advance to the subsequent part within the competitors for an additional $900,000.

Petrolern’s GeoDeckTM Platform is a web-based software that makes the interplay between scientific variables and their spatial and temporal dimensions easy and intuitive utilizing digital actuality (VR) and augmented actuality (AR). GeoDeckTM is designed to eradicate or decrease rigorous high-performance computing setups, time, value, and complexities when visualizing massive subsurface information. It makes the visualization course of environment friendly, productive, and scalable. It helps customers to inform compelling tales by deciding on, filtering, and reworking the information with out heavy consumer interventions. GeoDeckTM permits customers to generate actionable insights from uncooked information simply in a number of clicks. It’s a platform that every one stakeholders within the discipline might collaborate concurrently whereas they’re immersed in datasets. It has purposes to environmentally safe monitoring of subsurface operations together with CO2 or hydrogen underground storage, geothermal vitality growth, and safer oil and gasoline manufacturing.

CEO Dr. Hamed Soroush remarks, “I’m extremely happy with our crew and their ardour to innovate and create value-added software program for the clear vitality transition. GeoDeckTM offers the chance for decision-makers to make smarter choices in actual time, leading to safer and cleaner subsurface actions.”

“At Petrolern, we imagine specialists and non-experts ought to have the ability to make well timed choices with out information overload and with a 360-degree vantage level. To attain this imaginative and prescient, GeoDeckTM makes use of state-of-the-art data-handling applied sciences together with ever-increasing VR and AR applied sciences. GeoDeckTM presents this integration to load seamlessly on the internet without having for set up or obtain,” stated Dr. Salah Faroughi, Petrolern’s Lead Scientist.

NETL’s Senior Fellow Dr. Grant Bromhal stated, “We’re excited to see our Part 1 SMART Visualization Platform Prize Problem winners transfer ahead and advance their initiatives whereas working with the SMART technical crew. This problem will likely be a first-of-its-kind device that can use science-based machine studying and information analytics to visualise key subsurface options to rapidly and precisely reveal how the subsurface behaves.”
