How to integrate E&P data

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

There would be many business benefits from being able to integrate all our E&P data into a single system. Nalin Jena head, Petroleum Data Management, from Reliance Industries explains how it could work

Upstream E&P generates and accumulates extreme amounts of data, through the lifecycle of a prospect and asset, from data acquisition to decision and archival.

The data is consumed by several E&P applications and used by different technology domains. Geophysics, Geology, Earth Modeling, Reservoir Engineering, Drilling and Completions, and Production.

To integrate everything, the first step is to organize authentic, version controlled and quality assured data for individual silos of E&P disciplines and populate the data in a centralized database, such as a corporate data store (CDS).

The next step is to build an integrated digital platform (cross domain collaborative platform) connecting to the corporate data store.

It should also connect to real time data from the production and drilling domain, and other validated data sources.

Disparate E&P technical data classes can then be visualized in a single platform.

This will help the technical function and business to diagnose business critical issues across the exploration and production (E&P) value chain much more efficiently.

The cross domain collaborative platform is an integrated digital solution. It will help by providing new operational insights from analysis of diverse sets of operational data (such as drilling and production parameters) and cross-disciplinary data (such as geological models).

The data sets pertaining and relevant to specific business scenarios can be made available in the integrated digital platform.

This can facilitate cross-domain collaboration leading to improved quality of decisions.

Take the stuck pipe scenario as an example. The relevant data sets include rock mechanics data, fluid data, lithological data, bottom hole assembly (BHA) dynamics data, MWD/LWD data and surface equipment data.

This can be made available in a cross domain collaborative platform, to identify preventative or mitigating measures. It can identify warning signs hidden in the operational and nonoperational parameters necessary for each stuck-pipe mechanism.

Similarly, for drilling optimization, data sets such as well logs, formation tops, mud logs, core analysis, rock mechanics, drilling parameters, bit records, rate of penetration (ROP), revolutions per minute (RPM), torque and drill bit conditions can be made available in the digital platform.

We have a single environment for Cross-domain collaboration, covering seismic, wells, drilling, production and reservoir.

We have easy retrieval of authentic, version controlled and quality assured data and documents, Master data is managed once and used across the functions and serves as a foundation for data analytics.
