About Ambyint

Ambyint has been delivering best-in-class artificial lift optimization solutions to E&P customers since2004, when the company was founded in Calgary, Alberta as Pumpwell Solutions. Through activelyacquiring data, monitoring, and optimizing thousands of horizontal and vertical wells across WesternCanada with its solution over the next decade, the company amassed a data lake so large that it gainedthe ability to make computer-generated inferences. Thus, the team began leveraging the power ofartificial intelligence and machine learning to develop an end-to-end solution that merges traditionalphysics-based techniques with modern data science and analytics, effectively bringing the massive powerof the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data analytics to the oil patch in an unprecedented way.

Today, Ambyint is able to diagnose a number of abnormal / damaging well conditions via our proprietary,AI-based platform, which features a modern user interface that dramatically cuts optimization workflowtimes over traditional offerings, as we continue to expand the functional scope of our data science andmachine learning algorithms. Ambyint currently has offices and staff in Calgary and Houston, withsolutions deployed to customers across North America and the rest of the world. The company is led by ateam of experienced oilfield entrepreneurs, production engineers, operations practitioners, andleading-edge technologists.
