#044: The Value of Satellite Imagery in Oil and Gas Analysis With Eric Anderson

On this week’s episode, Tom and Phil are joined by Eric Anderson, Chief Technology Officer for SynMax. SynMax uses imagery and data collected by satellites combined with AI to deliver insight to the oil and gas industry that has previously only been modeled or forecasted. This allows producers, hedgers and energy traders the ability to clearly see what’s happening and make better decisions. Eric explains that the perfect combination of factors have come together with the ability to create something really valuable using satellite imagery for the oil and gas industry and many other industries as well.
