December 30, 2016 | State of the Market Report

Top innovation executives in the oil and gas industry reported that they rarely make time to read technical papers published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), but that technical papers have potential to impact business decisions. Based on this response, we analyzed more than 20,000 SPE papers' titles, abstracts, keywords, and author affiliations to identify key trends and partnerships. This analysis shows that the industry needs more creative solutions for analyzing historical data, which is readily available but challenging to navigate.
