Well engineers not using the latest approved best practices, lesson learned and risks when planning, often having "their own way" of doing things. Lack of standardization leads to loss of best practices.
For Energy Companies to continue to be successful, adoption of new technologies driving efficiency and reducing environmental impact is key. To enable faster, better decisions, to enable optimisations in real-time and at scale, and to deliver on the promise of efficient use of resources.
We understand the challenges well engineers have in terms of automating manual processes and access to real-time data for all teams involved.
From creating the plan for the job and then sharing this with the operations team as work instructions, we have fully integrated apps and when the job is finished, we can update the lessons learned and analyze how the operation was completed.
To be successful, Energy Companies need to be able to create more, better quality plans with fewer resources than ever. That's why it is important to remove duplicated effort and time wasting data searches. That is why it is important that the whole team are working on the same plan all of the time. That is why it is important that all approvals and requests are tracked in the same environment. Engineers need to be using their engineering experience to make great plans, not edit documents and look for data.
Driving continuous improvement through in-depth analysis of all phases of the job. The best way to improve is to measure and review. Analytics and lessons-learned are important information to drive future greatness.
With automated tools to improve the entire process, the IDEX Collaboration Platform allows you to creates an end-to-end plan for all jobs that is updated and improved right through to the end of that job.
Giving the engineering, planning and operations teams access to the live plan at all times has shown significant improvements for our customers and with real-time oversight for critical decisions during the job, you are put back in control of your key assets.
In addition, Aker BP’s Onshore Collaboration Centers (OCCs) play an integral role in the Alliance’s ability to leverage digitalization, Fig. 1. The OCCs utilize the cloud-based Stimline IDEX suite of solutions for planning and execution, providing access to live and fully liberated data from all operations to improve transparency and operational follow-up amongst the Alliance partners.
Shell is pursuing digital solutions for the wells organisation and recognises that the team at Stimline is well set-up to provide agile development of the IDEX platform to work within the wider Shell digital environment. We’ve been particularly impressed with the engagement level from the Stimline team. This team understands what it takes to deliver in a timely manner and we look forward to working with them.
Our Digital Strategy is critical to improved efficiency in the Intervention & Stimulation Alliance. Accurate planning, collaborative operations and full transparency in decision making are all expected within the Alliance. Having access to all of the latest data, information and analyses at all times, from wherever you are, is required to make this a reality. IDEX has already shown us how we can benefit from a truly collaborative platform.
