Big Data and Analytics for Oil and Gas Transportation


There has been a significant resurgence of the U.S. oil and gas industry in recent years, and U.S. is now second leading producer of oil (behind Saudi Arabia). Based on the current trends, North America could rival OPEC in oil and production. This growth along with the complexities found in the oil and gas industry can create significant transportation and logistics challenges.
