Big Data architecture for O&G

Houston Hadoop Meetup has grown to over 800 members by now. It is lavishly hosted by the Slalom consultants in the Galleria area, and beer, wine and food are provided by Slalom.

The presenter, Dmitry Kniazev gave an overview of the Proof-Of-Concept solution created for a major Oil & Gas company. He gave a brief overview of the WITSML standard that exists in the industry to share the sensor data among different operators, and described how they tapped to it to build the near real-time alerting application that streams data into Kafka queue and processes it using Spark Streaming.

Dmitry Kniazev is as a Solutions Architect, Data Analytics at EPAM Systems (NYSE: EPAM). EPAM is a solutions integrator that outsources solutions implementation to various locations, primarily Eastern Europe. Dmitry has been working with one of the major Oil & Gas companies here in Houston for almost 4 years and participated in various Data Analytics related projects.
