Weekliii Round-Up: Knowledge Management, Open Data Portals, and More...

In our final post of this Knowledge Management for Environmental Resources series, we discuss ways in which you might interrogate the spatial data inventory and results database you have created. This includes what questions will get you optimal answers, topics to kickstart your analysis, and how to allow others to view data when they do not have access to the more technical resources that might be required to do so.
The production of oil comes with its challenges as a whole. As the environments in which production occurs change, so too do some of the more specific challenges faced. For instance, BP and its colleagues in Azerbaijan have recently encountered issues with sand invading oil wells, causing operators to choke the wells back. Although this "fix" helps in avoiding damage, it also results in revenue loss. By looking to high technology and incorporating solutions one would not typically associate with an oil field, BP and its techs have been able to address this problem head on...or should I say, app on. This article talks about the use of fiber-optic cables, sonic signatures, and the power of technology in aiding companies to better address potential pitfalls in similar situations.
