The supercomputer presents new opportunities in both exploration and development and enhances Aramco’s decision-making on exploration and investment decisions.
This is the next step in Aramco’s digital transformation. Saudi Aramco CEO, Amin Nasser, said:
- The Dammam 7 supercomputer will help us with breakthroughs as part of our long term 《Discovery and Recovery》strategy in our Upstream business
- This technology that processes complex data faster will enable new discoveries and enhanced recoveries
- Dammam 7 is another step in our plan to invest in the right technology that drives production efficiency and resilience
Dammam 7 has 55.4 petaflops of peak computing power, allowing it to process and image the world’s largest geophysical datasets.
The Dammam 7 supercomputer, named after the 1st oil well discovered in 1938 in Saudi Arabia, will push beyond the traditional boundaries of exploration and production through cutting edge technology.
