Employees in the oil and gas industry require digital metrics to understand what resources are hiding beneath the Earth’s surface and, more importantly, how to extract them. Energy companies manage massive amounts of these metrics (or data) that must be preserved and accessed quickly to make technical decisions both daily and for many years into the future.
Slovnaft, an oil refinery based in Bratislava, operates the largest network of filling stations in Slovakia. It is one of the top three oil refineries in Europe, processing between five and six million tons of crude oil each year. Slovnaft stores reservoir metrics, machinery and personnel performance statistics, oil flow rates, and pressure metric data that must all be accessible to multiple users within the company at a moment’s notice.
