A weekly podcast on the impacts of digital technologies on the oil and gas sector

Dec 7, 2022

"You can't really connect the dots moving forward, but you can connect them backwards once you make sense of it."

In this episode, I’m in conversation with Christian Retek who is the Chief Revenue Officer at Flutura. The topic is ‘process engineer meets data science’. You can substitute any engineering discipline for process engineering, and the concepts in this episode still hold—how do you introduce data science ideas and solutions into highly risk-averse, change-hesitant industries like oil and gas?

"I describe processing engineering as the understanding and application of the fundamental principles and laws of nature that allow humans to transform raw material and energy into products that are useful to society."

Christian Retek is currently serving as the Chief Revenue Officer at Flutura and is a specialist in designing scalable, replicable sales processes for digital innovations across Education, Defense, Construction & Oil & Gas. Flutura helps refineries, gas processing & chemical manufacturing plants successfully automate the prediction of equipment failures, process upsets and swings in quality using their aggregate plant data & camera footage. 

"Our goal here is to enable people with the insights that they can make, so they get to be the heroes."
