BP ties up with IBM’s Quantum Network to boost the use of quantum computing in the energy industry

As computers become more of a part of the Oil & Gas industry, Executives realize that they are in need of computer scientists to operate the complex systems in place.

By joining the IBM Quantum Network™ as an Industry Partner, BP will have access to IBM's ‎quantum expertise and software and cloud-based access to the most advanced quantum ‎computers available via the cloud. 
This includes access to a premium 65-qubit quantum ‎computer, the largest universal quantum system available to industry today, and an important ‎milestone on the IBM Quantum roadmap to a 1,000-plus qubit system, targeted for the end of ‎‎2023.‎

BP will work with IBM to explore using quantum computing to solve business and engineering ‎challenges and explore the potential applications for driving efficiencies and reducing carbon ‎emissions.

Morag Watson, Senior VP, digital ‎science and engineering for BP said:
  • BP’s ambition is to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and help the world get to ‎net zero
  • Next-generation computing capabilities such as quantum computing will assist in ‎solving the science and engineering challenges we will face, enabling us to reimagine energy ‎and design new lower carbon products
Quantum computing has the potential to be applied in areas such as:
  • modelling the chemistry ‎and build-up of various types of clay in hydrocarbon wells – a crucial factor in efficient ‎hydrocarbon production; 
  • analyzing and managing the fluid dynamics of wind farms
  • optimizing ‎autonomous robotic facility inspection
  • helping create opportunities not yet imagined to ‎deliver the clean energy the world wants and needs.
In 2020, BP announced its net zero ambition and its new strategy.
By the end of this decade, it ‎aims to have developed:
  • around 50 gigawatts of net renewable-generating capacity (a 20-fold ‎increase)
  • increased annual low carbon investment 10-fold to around $5 billion
  • to cut its oil ‎and natural gas production by 40%.
Joining the IBM Quantum Network will enhance BP’s ability to leverage quantum advances ‎and applications as they emerge and then influence on how those breakthroughs can be ‎applied to its industry and the energy transition.‎‎

Dario Gil, ‎Senior VP and Director of IBM Research noted:
  • BP joins a rapidly growing number of clients working with IBM to explore quantum computing to ‎help accelerate the discovery of solutions to some of today's biggest challenges
  • The energy industry is ripe with opportunities ‎to see value from the use of quantum computing through the discovery of new materials designed ‎to improve the generation, transfer, and storage of energy
