To genuinely understand reservoir behavior, the oil and gas industry needs tools that can track and analyze data over long periods of time and for many unique variables. This post shows examples of tracking reservoir behavior across time. Traditional BI and GIS tools are too restrictive but with OmniSci's GPU and CPU innovations, accelerated analytics on billions of rows of data becomes possible.

A few years back, the American Statistical Association put out a dataset of hundreds of millions of US airline flights from 1987 to 2008, as part of a supercomputing competition. The dataset includes every single flight record known by Bureau of Transportation Statistics for that two decade period; every prop plane, every jet plane, balloon or blimp.
