Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Digital Oilfield is an Intelligent Energy concept that ensures a continuous optimization of an asset or group of assets through integration of standard tools, right people, defined business processes and appropriate facility or space. Digital oilfield solution includes real-time production optimization; it extends to reduction in an asset safety exposure and improvement in team integration.

Following over two decades of implementation by many operators globally, the digital oilfield is not new to the oil and gas industry but has undergone a series of transformation in implementation and sustainability. The fundamental principle and objectives of the digital field implementation aims towards optimization of an asset in the short term and extending the life cycle value of an asset in long term — but the difference remains the name each operator refers to this concept.

With world-class digital oilfield implementation by several major oil and gas operators’, short term solutions have been delivered but the challenges have been value erosion overtime due to lack of effort or commitment to ensure solid embedment process and sustainability of the solutions. The challenges include but are not limited to the following:

Poor alignment of the project implementation objectives with the business need of the asset.
Lack of involvement of the asset at the inception of the project; ensuring seamless ownership and sponsorship.
To mitigate or manage these gaps, a sustainability framework based on personal industry experience will be shared, to ensure the digital field solutions address the asset-specific business need and the asset takes ownership and sponsorship of the project right from the project conception phase. Proper succession planning and a clear training path for personnel must be identified and captured in the sustainability framework. At the end of this webinar the following objectives will be achieved with reference to case study: Know the common challenges of Digital Oil implementation; Provide mitigations on identified DOF Implementation challenges; Map sustainability model in DOF embedment process; Manage World-Class DOF projects.
