The AIChE Chicago Section is pleased to host an in-person meeting featuring Marty Gonzalez (BP).   Mr. Gonzalez is presenting on "Simulation and Digital Twins Enable Oil & Gas to meet Sustainability Goals for the Future?"

PDHs will be awarded for attendance of the technical presentation.

When: Thursday, Sept 22nd, 2022  

Where: Driftwood Grille (Oakbrook Terrace)

Topic: Simulation and Digital Twins Enable Oil & Gas to meet Sustainability Goals for the Future?

Speaker: Marty Gonzalez

Speaker’s Biography:

Marty Gonzalez leads the Intelligent Operations – Con-nected Worker team within bp’s Innovation & Engineering organization. He also functions as Chief Product Owner for the Digital Twin program in support of Production and Operations.

In his 27-year career with bp and Amoco, Marty has held positions in research, operations, process design, capital projects, and refinery commercial optimization. He has been developing data analytics, machine learning, and AI-based decision applications for bp’s operations since 2016.

Marty holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, where his research was in kinetics and catalysis.

Presentation Abstract:

The current digital renaissance has broadened the way that engineers think about simulation. Across the different industries, diverse modeling technologies are used to create digital twins representing every aspect of a business or operation.

The oil and gas industry is no different, as pure data models, physics/machine learn-ing hybrids, and knowledge graphs are helping to transform oil production, refining, and power generation.

In this session, we will discuss how bp is using simulation to optimize operations, re-duce operational risk, and design new energy assets on its way to becoming the inte-grated energy company of the future.
