Rosneft Holds an IT-Marathon

05 December 2022

Moscow saw the finals of Rosneft IT-Marathon which is the biggest in Russia. The organizers and winners of the hackathons* presented their best solutions to experts from leading Russian companies and universities.

Digitalization of business processes is one of the key objectives of Rosneft-2030 Strategy. The Company is persistently introducing advanced technological solutions to analyze large amounts of data for improving the efficiency in all its business areas. Specialized IT-Marathons help Rosneft address real operational tasks in co-operation with high-skilled people.

In 2022 RN-BashNIPIneft Research Institute held four contests for students and IT specialists with a total of more than 2,300 people participating. This is twice as many as in 2021. The geography of the participants covers more than 130 cities and 12 countries.

The priority of the IT-Marathon is to address problems using advanced digital technologies and artificial intelligence tools. The solutions gained at the contest are integrated into Rosneft software used for hydrocarbon exploration and production.

As part of the country universities hackathon, its participants were doing correlation and cluster data analysis and making machine learning models. The obtained solutions will be used for making geological models and identifying methods of oil production. Daniil Raspopin, the winner of the hackathon from Kursk, got a job offer from RN-BashNIPIneft, and so now he is involved in the institute's projects of data analysis and machine learning.

Participants of the hackathon for robotics programmers were solving a task of robotizing the study of core, - which means “samples of rock”. The best approaches and methods used for solving this task are now planned to be employed in the modernization project of RN-BashNIPIneft laboratory complex.

This year the tasks of the two biggest IT-Marathon contests - Rosneft Challenge I and Rosneft Challenge II - were around the subject of oilfield development optimization. Their first task was about predicting electrical submersible pump failures, and the second task was about optimizing well operations. The solutions presented by the participants will be used in the high-tech software line developed in the Company.
