@Phoenix, deepwater activities are fascinating, aren't they? I think because we simply can't imagine what it'd be like to live in that world! I will definitely share more, not only on the data and the analytics but also on the culture hurdles. Stay tuned!

It is really fascinating to find out more about how they use models and analytics to process data and predict things. I have always wondered how the industry operated. Specially the deep sea oil drilling. I look forward to your next articles on Shell.

It's a quote, so now that it's correct, there's not much else to do with it.

Under 3000 feet of water and then 5000 feet of rock, the point is the same - the action is only accessible with instrumentation. No diver can 'see' what's going on. If something is amiss, we have to figure it out with the data and patterns in data.

Even that sounds excessive. Most wells in the Gulf of Mexico for example are in water depths of 5,000 feet or so. Sure the wells are deeper, but even at 20,000 to 30,000 feet. Does it really make sense to say "10s of thousands of feet?"

Yes, thank you, that was an error. Should have been "feet," as it now should read, not "miles."

I think there may be an error here. "Tens of thousadns of miles?" Back in 2009, the Deepwater Horizon crew drilled the deepest oil and gas well in the world (Macondo). And that only had a vertical depth of 35,050 ft., or more than six miles.
