JOINT MEETING OF THE SPE-GCS GENERAL MEETING STUDY GROUP AND THE HOUSTON CHAPTER OF THE API
ABSTRACT of Presentation
This presentation will share firsthand experience, concepts, strategies and case studies which demonstrate the capability of a remote operations center to improve the operational efficiency and economics of an asset by centralizing the People, Process, Technology and Governance into a single location using technology as the enabler.
Digital transformation programs have become a major improvement initiative within many oil & gas companies. Some operators have been highly successful while others struggle with a transition to the new ways of operating. Many are able to justify the spend on technology but are reluctant to challenge the traditional operating model which inherently accepts lower reliability, higher maintenance cost and daily visits to facilities and wellsite’s.
Remote operations centers are being designed to simultaneously optimize production from several hundred wells, monitor facilities 24/7, provide alarm management, manage by exception and deliver expert support in near real-time. Co-location of operations, engineering and expert support into a single collaborative work environment is critical for the accelerated decision making and near real-time support being delivered to the field.
If successfully deployed, expected results include improved production profile, reduced downtime, lower lifting costs and improved HS&E, all of which are critical to business success.
