TotalEnergies doubles the computational speed of its Pangea supercomputer

TotalEnergies announces the commissioning of Pangea 4, the latest version of its supercomputer dedicated to numerical simulation and energy transition. The calculator was put into service on July 2 at the Jean Viger Scientific and Technical Centre (CSTJF) in Pau.

Energy Transformation Projects

Pangea was initially developed for TotalEnergies' conventional exploration and production activities. It is now open for its activities and will be used for the company's energy transformation. For the period 2024-2028, Pangea 4 should also be used to meet the needs of TotalEnergies' new activities.

These processes include simulating wind flow for the design and installation of wind farms; simulating reservoir storage capacities or assessing well integrity as part of Carbon capture and geological storage projects(CCS); Methane Emission Reduction Calculations.

Projects also relate to biofuel and polymer simulation; image processing, seismic acquisition, reservoir simulation and geological basin modelling as part of exploration and production activities.

On-premises solution integrated with the cloud

The calculator is a hybrid solution consisting of a physical device on site in Pau and access to the computational capabilities of Pangea 4, 24 hours a day, twice as fast as the previous version. Pangea 4 is smaller and less energy intensive. It consumes about 90% less electricity. It should allow you to stay at the forefront of performance in terms of numerical simulations thanks to regular cloud updates.

Pangea's latest development reinforces our leadership in industrial digital simulation. » Namita Shah, General Manager OneTech at TotalEnergies introduces OneTech.
