Is it possible to find ways to improve production without investing in more wells, intervention or offshore work, just from analysing the data we have, to help make better decisions?

This is what we explored in our half day Digital Energy Journal / Finding Petroleum forum in Aberdeen on September 29, "Using Analytics to Improve Production."

You can also read the report from our May Stavanger conference on production data and analytics here

We previously ran this conference in September 2014 - see the agenda see the delegates list

How cooperation across the organisation enables optimal production and forecasting


Watch Video     View PDF   
Talk Description.
To maximise production we need to integrate different areas of technical expertise. We need to involve all levels in the organisation, equity partners and customers too.

Integrated activity planning, rolling production forecasting and asset management must be aligned. For credible production forecasting, we have to reach a balanced view of uncertainties.

How can we enable such cooperation across organisations and locations?

Integrated Operations Centres are not the whole answer. People, Process, Technology and Organisation all need yet more attention to deliver improved workflows.

A case-study of optimising gas-lift for many wells will show the benefits of cooperation for understanding the reservoir, production and facilities all brought together with insights from Operations.
Tom Fox is a consultant in integrated production modelling in the oil and gas industry. He was formerly involved in field development planning and software development with Shell Technology Norway, and before that a consultant field development engineer with Shell Global Solutions

Teradata
The best way to work out how to improve production using your available data


View PDF   
Duncan Irving is the Teradata Industry Consultant for Oil & Gas in EMEA. Duncan joined Teradata from the University of Manchester where he instructed in geophysical interpretation and geocomputational methods for the last seven years. He was involved in consulting and research projects involving user interactions with massive subsurface datasets and more general upstream data management, and he continues to maintain research links as an honorary lecturer. One long term project was with Teradata and he drove the development of Teradata's capabilities in the Upstream Oil and Gas area. This time provided him with a deep understanding of the capabilities of Teradata and how they can best be used in the petroleum industry.
He is a geophysicist and also has a PhD in glacial geophysics and geotechnical engineering (why frozen ground moves faster during climate warming and how this affects infrastructure). Duncan lives in the hills outside Manchester with his wife and three children. He is a mountaineer, fell runner and is a card-carrying member of the CAMpaign for Real Ale.

Talk Description.
Joint presentation with Vinicius Girardi Silva, ESSS (Business Development)

Developing a cost effective tool to help make decisions on how to improve and optimise production on mature fields

- Developing an efficient and cost effective integrated workflow solution for analytical production surveillance & optimisation
- Enabling collaboration between surface and subsurface company functions
- The tool needs to cover production modelling, production allocation, historical production and waterflood / gas lift analysis and production forecasting,
- Case study - using an efficient and cost effective tool to analyse post simulation results, for data management and production forecasting.
- Using powerful 3D visualisation to view, analyse and make quick decision from post simulation results.
EnginSoft is a premier consulting firm in the field of Simulation Based Engineering Science (SBES) with a global presence. It was founded in 1984, but its founder and initial employees had been working in SBES since the mid '70s. Throughout its long history it has been at the forefront of technological innovation and remains a catalyst for change in the way SBES and CAE technologies in general are applied to solve even the most complex industrial problems with a high degree of reliability.

Today, EnginSoft is comprised of groups of highly qualified engineers, with expertise in a variety of engineering simulation technologies including FEM Analysis and CFD, working in synergic companies across the globe. We are present in Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Sweden, Turkey and the U.S.A. and have a close partnership with synergetic companies located in Greece, Spain, Israel, Portugal, Brazil, Japan and the U.S.A.

We work across a broad range of industries that include the automotive, aerospace, defense, energy, civil engineering, consumer goods and biomechanics industries to help them get the most out of existing engineering simulation technologies.

Data, models, workflows and change management: towards better operational performance


Watch Video     View PDF   
Talk Description.
For the last ten or fifteen years (at least) the O&G industry has seen the rise (and in some cases the fall as well) of concepts like Digital Oilfield, Integrated Operations, Digital Asset, SmartFields, iField, Field of the Future,… While the huge swings in crude oil price have not provided a stable decision making framework for companies to fully adopt these concepts, there is now renewed interest since the current situation is forcing radical action and, as existing producing assets are being subjected to renewed focus and attention, O&G producers are turning their attention back to techniques that promise to bring improved operational performance, in terms of increased production, reduced production cost, etc. Experience is that four areas are key for ensuring the success of these initiatives: data, models, workflows and change management. A case study around staged implementation of production workflows will illustrate how these four areas can be made to co-operate to deliver substantially increased operational performance.
Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With nearly 70,000 employees in approximately 80 countries, the company serves the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir - from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production through the life of the field.
