Italy’s Eni launches world’s biggest industrial supercomputer

Reuters/NAN

Italian oil and gas group, Eni, on Thursday, January 18, said it had installed new capacity at its supercomputing centre near Milan to create the world’s most powerful industrial computer.

The new capacity quadruples the group’s computing power, allowing it to process up to 22.4 quadrillion operations per second, the company said.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Eni, Claudio Descalzi, said “in our industry, it is increasingly important to be able to process ever-increasing amounts of data, ensuring more accurate and faster results.”

The state-controlled firm had invested heavily in high-powered computing to give it an edge over rivals in exploration and get its resources to market faster.

After giant gas discoveries in Mozambique and Egypt, it has one of the industry’s best discovery track records in recent years.

In December, it said it had produced first gas from its Egyptian supergiant Zohr field in just two and a half years, a record time for this type of field.
