Explore Oil & Gas use cases this Thursday at IQT Quantum Enterprise

By Dan O'Shea posted 10 May 2022

The oil and gas industry, like many others, is starting to see increasing levels of quantum technology experimentation and pilot projects.

Most recently Pasqal and Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, got together for a project to develop new applications. It’s a sector that can benefit from chemical and material science simulations of the type that have been suggested by QunaSys. Meanwhile, IBM has worked with the likes of BP on pursuing energy use cases.

Representatives from all three of these companies will be joining me this Thursday live and online from IQT’s Quantum Enterprise in San Diego for a session to talk about use cases for quantum computing in the the oil and gas industry, starting at 4: 25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT.

Our speakers will include Andreas Thomasen, Research Software Engineer, QunaSys; Bob Parney, IBM Quantum Global Lead Sustainability, Oil and Gas, Chemicals, Industrial Products, Metals, IBM; and Catherine Lefebvre, Vice President, Strategic Business Development North America, PASQAL

Lefebvre told IQT News on the eve of the event, “The energy sector, including the oil and gas industry, represents a vast domain of opportunity for quantum computing applications. Therefore, we at Pasqal have been very active in the area, pursuing internal research focused on Oil & Gas use cases to further demonstrate our neutral atoms quantum computing capabilities and applications. We are also currently working directly with the industry to deliver early quantum advantage. To cite a few examples, we recently signed an MoU with Saudi Aramco to design quantum machine learning applications, and also, the Italian oil and gas company ENI is an investor in Pasqal.”

Join us Thursday to hear more on this important topic.

Dan has covered telecommunications and related topics including semiconductors, sensors, retail systems, digital payments and quantum computing/technology for over 25 years.
