We welcome you to join AWS and PETRONAS: AWS for Energy learning series. We have put together a series of sessions designed to help PETRONAS learn about the application of cloud in the Energy sector. We will share how cloud is used in the different segments along the Energy value chain and how to utilise cloud to drive transformation within Petronas.

Session 1: Energy Solutions on Cloud

Date: Thursday, 9 September 2021
Time: 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM MYT

Energy Solutions on Cloud aims to give an overview of how cloud can provide innovative solutions across the energy value chain.

In this session, we will look into how cloud has been utilised in upstream, midstream and downstream companies in order to drive operational benefits, such as cost savings, agility and solutions to complex business problems. We will also look closely into the Upstream sector and its complex workflows, where scalable cloud technologies such as high performance computing, IoT and AI allow engineers to extract actionable insights for decision making. This session will provide a good overview of the different cloud technologies applicable to different stages within the energy sector and its value chain.

Session 2: Cloud for New Energies

Date: Thursday, 23 September 2021
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM MYT

Energy transition refers to the global energy sector’s shift from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption — including oil, natural gas and coal — to renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and hydrogen.

The key drivers of energy transition include: The increasing penetration of renewable energy into the energy supply mix, the onset of electrification of transportation as well as improvements in energy storage. In this session, we will look into how energy companies utilise cloud technologies to achieve their energy transition and ESG goals. As there is an increasing focus on environmentally-friendly energy operations and Climate Pledge goals, we will also look into how cloud initiatives may provide some solutions for energy companies to reach their sustainability goals.

Session 3: Cloud in Downstream Applications

Date: Thursday, 14 October 2021
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM MYT

This session will show what role AI, cloud and cyber-security play in the operations of an energy company. This includes the management of pipeline networks and terminals as well as use cases for improving the efficiency of industrial facilities (such as refineries or petro-chemical plants) to reduce costs and improve operational performance.

Session 4: Cloud in Upstream Applications

Date: Thursday, 11 November 2021
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM MYT

Upstream refers to points in production that originate early on in the processes and is the farthest from the end-user consumer in the oil & gas supply chain. Upstream includes include exploration, drilling, and extraction.

The OSDU Data Platform is an open data platform for oil & gas data which is developed by a consortium of 200+ companies (and managed by OpenGroup). In this session, we look into how OSDU™ can take advantage of the reliability, security and scalability of cloud services to help organisations liberate data and accelerate workflows. By improving controls over business processes, organisations are able to reduce silos and gain access to important data, therefore creating opportunities for customised and value-generating workflows in the long round.

Session 5: Energy Stations of the Future

Date: Tuesday, 7 December 2021
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM MYT

The “Energy Station of the Future” is based on the realization that future profit growth of traditional fuel stations will come from retail (i.e. convenience stores), not from fuel sales. In addition, better operational efficiency will be achieved by consolidating fragmented IT-backend systems and software “point solutions” in a centralized cloud environment as well as from the introduction of new technologies.

These new technologies include IoT and machine vision; increased focus on sustainability; electrification of transportation. The electrification of transportation also leads to the concept of an energy station which now also includes H2 filling stations, as well as solar panels and battery packs supporting EV-charging stations.
