Shell, Baker Hughes, C3 AI and Microsoft launch an ecosystem of AI solutions to help transform the energy industry


Shell, Baker Hughes and Microsoft announced the launch of the Open AI Energy Initiative™ (OAI), a 1st-of-its-kind open ecosystem of artificial intelligence (AI)-based solutions for the energy and process industries.

Shell, Baker Hughes and Microsoft announced the launch of the Open AI Energy Initiative™ (OAI), a 1st-of-its-kind open ecosystem of artificial intelligence (AI)-based solutions for the energy and process industries. 
The OAI provides a framework for energy operators, service providers, equipment providers, and independent software vendors for energy services to offer interoperable solutions, including AI and physics-based models, monitoring, diagnostics, prescriptive actions, and services, powered by the BHC3™ AI Suite and Microsoft Azure.

C3 AI CEO Thomas Siebel said:
  • This initiative is about combining the efforts of global leaders to accelerate the digital transformation of the energy industry to new, safe, and secure energy and to ensure climate security
The 1st set of OAI solutions provided by Shell and Baker Hughes are focused on reliability and designed to improve uptime and performance of energy assets and processes.

These reliability solutions will serve as extensions to the current BHC3 Reliability application, an AI-based application that provides reliability, process, and maintenance engineers with AI-enabled insights to predict process and equipment performance risks for the energy industry.

The application leverages the BHC3 AI Suite’s ability to integrate enterprise-scale data from disparate data sources and train AI reliability models that cover full plant operations while taking full advantage of Azure, Microsoft’s scalable, enterprise-class cloud infrastructure.

Shell Chief Technology Officer Yuri Sebregts said:
  • Over the last few years, we have been working with C3 AI to scale our AI-based predictive maintenance solutions to reduce costs and improve the productivity, reliability, and performance of our assets
  • We are monitoring more than 5,200 pieces of equipment using machine learning across upstream and downstream manufacturing as well as integrated gas assets
  • We are excited to take this capability to market and want to develop an open ecosystem where others can offer AI solutions to help improve reliability across the industry
Uwem Ukpong, executive VP of regions, alliances & enterprise sales at Baker Hughes noted:
  • Working alongside our alliance partners at C3 AI and together with industry leaders at Shell and Microsoft, the OAI will help address the persistent industry challenge of nonproductive downtime
  • This new ecosystem will leverage our strong existing BHC3 portfolio and is a promising step in the digital transformation of energy
Solutions available today include proven and tested equipment- and process-specific modules with pre-trained AI models, codified subject matter expertise, low-latency data connectors, thermodynamic and operating parameter libraries, global health monitoring services, deep diagnostics, failure prevention recommendations and prescriptive actions.
