THE FUTURE OF THE DIGITAL OIL
FIELD
Observations
Resistance if Futile
• The trend of field automation, real-time systems and earth & reservoir
modeling suggests that the Digital Oil Field is a reality
• New engineers and earth scientists are entering the workforce with high
digital literacy (from lifelong experiences with consumer IT) and with some
training in programming
• More and more petroleum engineering and earth science “intellectual
property” comes in the shape of software
But, Houston we have a problem
• Most of the “innovation” comes from end users or consultants working on
project, the impact of central research groups are decreasing, most of the
execution & support details are left to local IT
• Significant gaps continue to surface (lack of reuse, fragile integration, poor
data foundation, lack of end-to-end system design)
THE EMERGING WORLD OF THE
DIGITAL ENGINEER
T-shaped expertise
A mix of technology/science, business and
management will ready future innovators for the
big challenges presented by a knowledge-driven
economy.

"IT professionals will need to possess expertise in
multiple domains. Technical aptitude alone will no
longer be enough. IT professionals must prove
they can understand business realities – industry,
core processes, customer bases, regulatory
environment, culture and constraints. Versatility
will be crucial.“ – Gartner Group IT Professional

Barriers to Adoption
THE INTEGRATION CHALLENGE
The “Integration” Challenge
•
•
•
•
•
From Field to Office
From Reservoir to Well to Facilities
Regional, between similar fields
Along the Supply Chain
Fully Integrated Operations
THE COMPLEXITY CHALLENGE
THE INNOVATION CHALLENGE
Types of Innovation
• “Do New Things”: Invention
• “Do Things Better or Faster”: Continuous
Improvement / Lean Sigma
• “Do Things Cheaper”: Frugal Innovation
• “Do Things Differently”: Transformation
Where does Innovation Happen?
• Invention in the Center (R&D department)
• Commercialization (productization) in the
center (economies of scale)
• Adoption at the edge (business units)
• Innovation could happen anywhere
– Lease Innovation (external consultants)
– Buy Innovation (from market suppliers)
– Problem Solvers are usually at the edge where the
problems are
