9:30 Julian Pickering - Director
Digital Oilfield Solutions Ltd
Extracting business value from the Digital Oilfield


Watch Video     View PDF   
Talk Description.
Many players in the Oil and Gas business have invested in Digital Oilfield technology - some have committed very large sums of money. Unfortunately there have been several cases where the returns have failed to meet expectations, which has led to disillusionment. There is also the problem for smaller operators to justify the necessary investments in the first place. This presentation will examine the real benefits that can be achieved and review some of the failings that have hindered more widespread uptake. It will also look at a process that can lead to building a robust business case for the Digital Oilfield.



Dr Julian Pickering has a degree in Applied Physics from Brunel University, London and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Cambridge University, where he was a BP scholar. He has worked for BP for 32 years and has held major posts including the Head of Digital Technology for Global Drilling and Completions and the Head of the Field of the Future Facilities Programme. He left BP in March 2010 and set up his own company, Digital Oilfield Solutions, with partners in the United States of America. He has provided consultancy services to many large Oil and Gas companies and is a consultant to the Energistics Data Standards Organisation.

Digital Oilfield Solutions Ltd
Digital Oilfield Solutions is a partnership between the UK company Digital Oilfield Solutions Ltd and the US company Digital Oilfield Solutions Inc. Through its extended network of Independent Delivery Partners it can service projects on a global basis.

Digital Oilfield Solutions is a member of Energistics (Dr Julian Pickering chaired the WITSML Executive Team in 2009 and remains a team member). The promotion of WITSML and PRODML and the quantification of associated business benefits are key objectives of their delivery.

Epsis
Experiences from implementing collaborative workflows across organizational boundaries


Watch Video     View PDF   
Talk Description.
While the first implementations of the Digital Oilfield were focused on a one-to-one connection between an operational site and a dedicated asset team, more complex and dynamic extended support networks are being introduced that allow to call in expertise in a flexible and ad-hoc manner. Mr. Nordtvedt will be speaking about experiences with implementing collaborative workflows across organizational boundaries with examples from a.o. Chevron and MI Swaco and from the running Integrated Operations in the High North Joint Industry Project involving 24 companies (incl. Statoil, ENI, Baker Hughes, ABB, Siemens, DNV, NOV, Petroleum Safety Authority of Norway and Epsis).
Jan-Erik Nordtvedt has more than 20 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, most of it connected with technology and technology company management, product commercialization and consulting. After beginning his career with Statoil, Jan-Erik has gained experience in academia (professor at the University of Bergen and Texas A&M University), research institutions (research adviser to Christian Michelsen Research and research director at the Rogaland Research Institute) and service companies (technical director at Petec Software & Services and manager integrated reservoir and production at Roxar). Since 2000, Jan-Erik has been involved in integrated operations, in the beginning by assessing the opportunities for operators, and currently in assisting operators and service providers to implement collaborative workflows by providing hardware and software tools along with the services needed to modernize their collaborative work environments.

Epsis

12:10 Paul Nguyen - Industry Technology Strategist, Worldwide Oil & Gas Industry Unit
Microsoft Oil and Gas
The Microsoft Upstream Reference Architecture ((MURA) initiative


Watch Video     View PDF   
Talk Description.
For any given area of oil and gas work, products and solutions from different vendors need to work with one another to achieve the required business functionality. To reach this level of interoperability, Microsoft, along with its oil and gas industry partners, is leading the Microsoft Upstream Reference Architecture Initiative, an organized collaboration to develop a common upstream reference architecture as the “unifying language” for data integration and a force for productivity and integration in the industry. This foundational architecture will be designed and implemented by oil and gas solution providers, technology providers, systems integrators, and standards organizations with guidance from operators. As a result, engineers will have access to oilfield information based on their needs and without the constraints of individual solution products.
Paul Nguyen joined Microsoft in 1999 and is responsible for defining and developing an oil and gas technical architecture vision and long-term technology roadmap for Microsoft, shaping the company's technical strategy in these critical areas. He currently leads the development and organization of the Microsoft Upstream Reference Architecture Initiative, an effort by Microsoft and its industry partners to define and expand a common reference architecture as the "unifying language" and a force for productivity and integration in the oil and gas industry.

Prior to this role, Paul worked in the Microsoft Consulting Services division as an application development architect consultant. In this role, he applied his technical experience and deep industry knowledge to support many of Microsoft's strategic customers and partners in the oil and gas market with solution development and in setting development standards for their organizations.

Paul joined Microsoft after nine years developing computing platforms and upstream solutions for major oil and gas companies. Outside of the oil and gas industry, he has also held technical roles at the NASA Johnson Space Center designing hardware for the space shuttle's closed circuit television system (CCTV) and working in the mission control center on space shuttle telemetry processing systems. Paul holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from The University of Houston.

Microsoft Oil and Gas
Oil and Gas industry solutions from Microsoft and its partners are based on the world's most cost-effective, functionally rich information technology (IT) platform that helps create a more secure computing experience. This platform ensures our solutions are interoperable with a wide variety of systems to help people collaborate locally and globally across traditional data boundaries and gain streamlined access to information. These solutions uniquely amplify the efforts of people, creating winning relationships with customers, partners and regulators.

Dynamic Graphics
New ways to bring together drilling and subsurface data - and how it can be utilised


Watch Video    
Talk Description.
Bringing drilling and subsurface data together is of huge benefit and often, surprisingly, not utilized. Traditionally the two domains are largely segregated with a great deal of time spent shuttling data between the drillers and subsurface personnel and, in particular, the drillers making no use of all relevant information when planning trajectories. The users of Dynamic Graphics' integrated approach have conservatively suggested an integrated workflow saves about 90% of time for a particular project.
Dynamic Graphics, Inc. partners with clients to solve spatial analysis problems in the petroleum, environmental, and earth-related sciences. Over the past four decades, we have been the premier provider of geospatial solutions with our innovative, easy-to-use software and outstanding support services.
