Description

The Digital Oil Field is rapidly gaining attention within the oil and gas industry.  Several oil and gas operators are working to develop their vision for an oil field of the future, testing new technologies, setting up programs and participating in industry events. The vision is an integrated approach allowing more real-time control of asset management. Many different names are used in the upstream industry to describe this trend; Smart Fields, Digital Oil Field, Next Generation Oilfield, Field of the Future, e-field, Instrumented Field and Intelligent Energy. However, there is still uncertainty as to what needs to be done and what value it will actually bring to the industry.  Several operators and service companies are transitioning from the initial envisioning and abstract phase to projects creating measurable value for the company.  Chevron’s efforts within the Digital Oil Field domain, including concept, business case, corporate governance, technology development, partnerships, deployment and field experience are captured in the paper SPE 96390.  This presentation will be an update to that, focused on deployment. 

Please register early online in order to facilitate the Northside study group to better plan and streamline the luncheon. Walk-ins will be accepted on a space available basis. Please arrive early, walk-ins are seated on a first come/first serve basis. Thank You

Mike Hauser is currently the i-field Program Manager for Chevron Upstream, based in the North America Exploration & Production Company.  In this role, he is responsible for strategic alignment and governance needed in the integration of a portfolio of current and next generation asset implementation projects, as well as the enabling technology projects.  These projects are aimed at providing business solutions to assets desiring to be more effective in real-time decision making within asset management.  Prior to this, Mike has held various positions in Chevron’s Energy Technology Company and North America Production Company for 27 years.


 


Mike graduated from the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1978 with a BS degree in Geological Engineering.  He began his career that same year with Chevron Production in Taft, California.

In 1997, he moved to Houston to assume the position of Central Profit Center Manager, and then MidContinent Business Unit Asset Support Manager.  In these roles, he was responsible for operations across seven states from Alaska & the Rockies to South Texas & the Gulf Coast.
