Beyond Limits CEO, AJ Abdallat is published by Smart Industry International discussing the role of AI in the global goal of achieving net zero. Abdallat suggests four key ways in which AI can be utilized to combat climate change, including strengthening the grid and modernizing the oil and gas industry. One key focus is decarbonizing the atmosphere, which can be expedited through the use of “explainable AI” that shows its reasoning process. AI can speed up the process of discovering new materials required to achieve decarbonization. Abdallat also notes that AI can help make electric vehicles more accessible by finding alternative materials to the current semiconductor shortage.
“Environmental and energy leaders must continue to hone AI’s capabilities to achieve a net zero society. Governments around the world, including the Biden administration, are handing over the funds. Now, brilliant minds must turn those funds into action and a greener future.”

The oil and gas industry in the Asia Pacific region is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline operations and cut unnecessary costs. Beyond Limits APAC President, Leonard Lee is published by The Edge Singapore discussing the ways technology is being used to pinpoint drilling opportunities, inspect pipes with self-navigating robots, and predict equipment wear and tear. But while conventional AI acts as a “black box”, the next generation of cognitive AI acts as a “glass box”, providing detailed justifications for recommendations that can be easily understood and interpreted by humans and machines. It can also address the technical skill gap caused by an aging workforce and training challenges related to digitalization, compliance mandates, training costs, environmental impacts, and safety accidents.


“Global spending in the artificial intelligence (AI) market is expected to increase from US$17.6 billion in 2022 to approximately US$32 billion in 2025 as technologists aim to innovate existing layers of AI.”

Natural Gas Intelligence recently featured Mike Krause, Beyond Limits AI Solutions Senior Manager, in an article titled “AI Still Has Much to Learn About Humans in Natural Gas and Oil Industry.” The article takes an opportunity to discuss digital transformation efforts in the natural-centric sector of oil and gas stating that “companies would spend $15.6 billion,” according to a recent study conducted by ABI Research.


Within the article, Krause offered his perspective on Cognitive AI and the role it plays in relation to humans.


“I assign attributes to it like casing, perforation… all the hardware in a well, and then various other ‘explainability layers’ of information. Once you layer on the cognitive view, you really expand the possibilities.”

In response to a recent McKinsey & Company Article
“Reinventing upstream oil and gas operations after the COVID-19 crisis”
This year has thrust the energy industry into a complicated corner. While all industries, businesses, and companies are facing new struggles, the crisis created by this pandemic has hit oil and gas especially hard. This is the subject matter of a recent article published by McKinsey & Company in which they discuss the many supply challenges now being faced along with how “the COVID-19 pandemic has cut global demand sharply.” The article continues with a narrative centered on the future of upstream and what the industry will need to adjust in order to recover and move forward into a changing world, post Covid-19.
Beyond Limits’ key takeaways and central boiling points from the article:
+ There exists a critical need for advanced digitalization solutions in upstream.
+ The oil and gas industry must prioritize exploration while moving their assets from an Improve-centric approach to more of a Promote-focused strategy.
+ The key to successfully carrying out a transition is to reduce the break-even price per barrel for specific classes of assets.
For clarification purposes, this article describes the aforementioned assets as such:
+ Promote: “These are assets with low break-even prices and high potential to increase reserves. Operators will want to concentrate on developing the field, changing the asset footprint, and finding more low-cost reserves in the same basin.”
+ Improve: “This can describe two kinds of assets. The first has high break-even prices and good potential in terms of reserves. The other has low break-even prices but low potential in terms of reserves. For this group, the priorities are to improve operational efficiency and optimize production.”
Evolution in Upstream
The path forward for the evolution of upstream can be found in optimization and digitalization solutions that deliver greater visibility across an organization and its assets. The industry requires solutions that provide stakeholders with a more complete viewpoint from the big picture down to the smallest detail to best optimize entire operations.
Exhibit 4 within the McKinsey article seeks to provide a management roadmap in list form that describes what companies could do, “To reduce costs, enhance development opportunities, and reduce the carbon intensity of assets.” Two items listed in this exhibit focus on the need for data-driven production optimization to apply advanced analytics for improved maintenance purposes and more effective well and reservoir management.
A Solution in Revolutionary AI
Beyond Limits is already making progress in this area with a lot of experience in the oil and gas industry, offering a variety of solutions that support predictive maintenance efforts alongside asset, reservoir, and well management initiatives. Other significant proposals listed within Exhibit 4 include rationalizing/centralizing activities, simplifying workflows, and transitioning to a more agile environment.
All of these objectives resonate with Beyond Limits. Advanced Cognitive AI features a comprehensive and complete approach to artificial intelligence – providing a solution that has the ability to focus on a global view of large and complex operations. Cognitive AI provides optimized recommendations, driven by data and expert knowledge while still keeping humans in the loop to make decisions; explainable solutions that are managed by the oil and gas executives, managers, engineers, and operators they support.
Beyond Limits Cognitive AI appears an ideal match for helping upstream achieve the ambitions laid out by this McKinsey article and come out of the crisis more efficient than ever. This advanced form of artificial intelligence is already providing stakeholders with a holistic view over assets, from the big picture down to the smallest detail, ultimately elevating entire operations for the energy sector and several other high-value industries currently facing tough transitional periods.
