Seeq is co-sponsoring the Microsoft Energy Core Methane Emissions Hackathon virtual event. The objective of the hackathon is to overlay oil & gas asset and geographic information system data to pinpoint leak location, and to identify the timing and quantify of unplanned emissions.

Microsoft Energy Core Hackathon participants are from energy operators and academic institutions around the world, and they will use Seeq to diagnose and predict methane and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Participating teams will compete to present final use cases to the Microsoft Energy Core board of directors to share for the establishment of sustainability best practices for the oil & gas and process industries.

Microsoft Energy Core is a global initiative dedicated to digital transformation in the energy sector. Building on AI and cloud-based technologies, Microsoft Energy Core supports organizations developing innovative solutions to improve operational efficiencies, enhance sustainability, increase energy innovation, and drive workforce transformation.

“We are pleased to partner with Seeq, a finalist for the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year, on this effort to learn and share insights on GHG analytics,” says Darryl Willis, vice president, energy, Microsoft Corporation in a press release. “Our partners deliver timely solutions to solve the complex challenges energy businesses around the world face, from communicating and collaborating virtually, to helping customers realize their full potential with Azure cloud services, and beyond.”

Seeq also will participate in the Upstream Leadership Summit at CERAWeek by IHS Markit. The Upstream Leadership Summit is an invitation-only event for industry CEOs to gather and discuss key issues including innovation, sustainability, and best practices.

“Our energy industry customers are improving sustainability and production outcomes with Seeq to create advanced analytics insights on their process manufacturing data,” said Steve Sliwa, co-founder and CEO, Seeq Corporation. “This Hackathon represents an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the importance of self-service analytics to improve employee insights and innovation.”
