    OVERVIEWOVERVIEWMeeting production targets is a continuous challenge, and manycomponents of a field operation have the capacity tosignificantly impact the economic success of an asset. Fast andeasy access to reliable information is critical to enable engineersand management to make the right decisions at the right timeto meet both operational and longer-term strategic objectives.This is the case whether onshore or offshore and inconventional or unconventional fields. IOCs and NOCs aretherefore continuing to employ Digital Oil Field (DOF) policies intheir green and brown field business planning.

    At the end of 2011, one leading IOC estimated it hadincrementally increased production levels by 78,000 net boe/ddirectly as a result of their DOF programme. Key features oftheir programme included reducing operational risk, automatingroutine tasks, optimising production, and continuouslyimproving. Technologies that were implemented included real-time tools for monitoring facilities and predicting failure toenable proactive maintenance.

    DOF exploitation is gaining significant interest in the Middle Eastand since the inaugural Conference of 2010 held in Abu Dhabiin association with ADNOC, it has always been the AdvisoryCommittees intention to organise future IDOC events in variousDOF centres of interest around the Gulf. They are thereforedelighted that IDOC 2012 will be held in Muscat where PDO iscontinuing to make considerable headway in the ongoingdevelopment of their Smart Field Programme which is key tothe optimal management of their growing number of wells andequipment. By 2013, 21 of PDOs biggest fields which contribute80% of their output will operate on Smart Field Technologyprinciples.

    Also Saudi Aramco have implemented this approach inintegrating real time data in their upstream business processes.They have successfully demonstrated the enhanced value inthese experiences from the methodology of integrating relevanttechnologies, people and processes. For example, in theirKhurais Field, immediately adjacent to the worlds largest oilfield, Ghawar, Saudi Aramco can see field pressures changingusing sensors in the wells and in turn monitor the connectivityin the field.

    Within the UAE there are significant ongoing DOF programmes.Plans within ADCO and ADMA-OPCO are in place to operateSmart Field technology within a number of fields over the nextthree years.

    KOC have a plan to identify, select and implement newtechnologies thus creating a total technology integration cyclewith the main focus of this cycle to develop oilfields using smartfield approaches. KOC have launched three major pilot projectsthat demonstrate the benefits of DOF.

    Intelligent Reservoir Completion Technology has recently beensuccessfully employed in Qatars Al Shaheen Oilfield as theybegin to herald in their DOF intentions and QP are using thelatest smart technology to help improve recovery from threemature oilfields.

    Thus it can be seen that great strides in DOF usage are takingplace in this region.

    PDO have very kindly offered to host IDOC 2012 and theAdvisory Committee have created a conference programme thatwill focus on:

    WHY DO DOF This session will have an in-depth look at whatthe end-users feel the value creation is for DOF.

    INSTRUMENTATION & AUTOMATION Topics within thissession include Unmanned Operations, Remote Monitoring,Closed Loops and Networks & Architecture.

    DATA MANAGEMENT & WORKFLOW AUTOMATION Theintent of this session is to explore the current challenges, andeducate and inform the attendees on solutions to the problems,both from a technology and a human factors / cultureperspective.

    COMMUNICATIONS & COLLABORATION This sessionaddresses the challenges of ensuring that information iscommunicated to the relevant staff so they can work together toreach the optimal decision.

    SMART TECHNOLOGY This session will focus on smarttechnologies that are a key enabler to improve health and safetyof our operations, and help to minimise the environmentalimpact of oil and gas production.

    CHANGE MANAGEMENT Effective Change Management is atthe very core of any successful implementation of DOF projectsor programmes, and presentations will highlight this.

    THE FUTURE OF DOF This panel session will indicate howDOF initiatives can have positive influences across organisationalboundaries of the business and how to improve DOF co-existence with other programmes and initiatives that may berunning in parallel and will converge together to benefit all.

    Hosted by Petroleum Development Oman

  • Registration will be at 07.00.

    While striving to realise the proposed value of DOF, thecontinual development and deployment of new technologies willplace an enormous burden on IT to facilitate the rapid and realtime introduction of its model while maintaining a cost effectiveand agile position. In order to do this, an integrated and holisticapproach to Asset Management must be based on a platformthat facilitates common data, standards and processes and realtime information flows.

    Alongside this, networks and telecommunications, particularlywireless scenarios that bring about fast data and dataexchange, must reliably facilitate the conversion of data intoinformation. Here comprehensive integration is required to getto right time information and enable meaningful collaborationand the vital human factor when incorporating new technologiesand new software. Whereas video communications betweencorporate and field locations serve as a key money saver, if thedata is not processed properly or computer overload occurs, theopposite effect can occur.

    Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is atthe heart of successful DOF implementation. With most fieldsthere are many datasets and each member of an asset teamneeds easy access to this data in real time to contribute to anoverall strategy to improve and increase field production.

    Combining the different data streams and allowing operators toaccess it on a single platform is the current next step instreamlining the E&P sector at a time when staff shortagescontribute to the lack of critical skills deficit in the sector.

    Thus a united communications infrastructure for the entireenterprise delivers several potential benefits and improvedprocesses. By having a single network and embracing industrydata-exchange standards, O&G companies can ensure that theright data is delivered to the right individual at the right time,enabling better-informed decisions. Individuals located eitherin the field or onshore will be able to access the corporatenetwork via mobile devices, with access to the sameinformation and resources as they would have in their corporateoffice.

    A major impediment to DOFhas been a concern aboutthe security of highlyconfidential data streams ina shared network. A uniqueapproach is to drive securityinto the fundamental levelof the network in order tomanage and aggregatetraffic, secure data andallow for faster response tothreats in real time, which iscrucial in the E&P sector.



    This workshop will follow similar formats elsewhere withselected presentations that will be followed by open discussionand the workshop will be closed to the media.

    Workshop Proceedings will not be published. New ideas, and interesting projects are sought. Note-taking by delegates is encouraged. However, to ensure

    free and open discussions, no formal records will be kept. The Organisers will prepare a full report containing the

    highlights of the Workshop discussions to be sent to alldelegates after the event.

    All delegates will receive an attendance certificate confirmingtheir participation at the Workshop.


    Presentations to illustrate these areas of concern and togenerate the discussion will be forthcoming from:
