Offshore staff

PAU, France – Total plans to triple the power of its Pangea supercomputer by 2016. The supercomputer is in Total Exploration & Production’s Centre Scientifique et Technique Jean Féger R&D center in Pau, France.

 “The upgrade currently under way will increase this computing power to 6.7 petaflops, the equivalent of 80,000 personal computers” explains Philippe Malzac, IT director for Exploration & Production at Total. “This will make it possible to apply increasingly complex algorithms to huge volumes of data.”

Pangea is also a large-scale data storage tool: in 2016 it will have 27 petabytes of storage capacity.
