Well output now depends on remote control before the start of a project
Fast track automation is now ubiquitous to the petroleum industry. With AIDC, it is successful in providing cutting-edge solutions. Strategic alliances have introduced the best technologies, solutions and digitally enabled services. However, oil and gas field data capture remains a demanding challenge that begins with the planning in the boardroom and progresses to onsite projects. Automation and data capture are improving the performance of fuel management with accurate and reliable solutions.
Services to rig operations constitute the major contribution to oil companies. If your drilling operations still do not offer the best data capture and also affect the good output, you need to seriously take note of the information before implementing the next project.
Monitoring drilling processes remotely
A synergy of several parties required
Engineers and experts first evaluate a drill exercise in the boardroom with an execution plan. Any oil and gas project will take time to go through the drill before actual operations are conducted. It involves stakeholders like the group of companies and their directors, pump operators, directors, experts’ panels, contractors, equipment vendors and agencies that may hold interested in the project. The biggest addition to this stake and a necessity involves IT vendors who can develop software to access high-risk oil fields remotely. The biggest agenda is to derive valuable information relating to oil and gas field data capture. As natural resources are depleting, it is not easy to get data without integrating best practices. Every project is unique and may also involve localized regulatory processes. Often workers from other countries are hired. Each E & P project calls for synergy between various groups. In the boardroom, past data that has been collated from other drilling projects are used to make conjectures. They enable field operators to take advantage of previous experiences to be efficient in the new phase of operations. They may wish to deal with safety issues, accidents, new policies, and standards for drilling, equipment maintenance or failure at the planning level. All this calls for digital records that are now crucial for upstream companies to reduce downtime of productivity of wells. A single mistake can create bankruptcy. There is a pressure of perfect technical capabilities, competency measures with human expertise, machine, and digital resources.
Drilling engineer’s knowledge is always tested
In the boardroom and actual operations
When a drilling manager is hired on the basis of his past performance in rig sites in other parts of the world, he will still be tested. His previous experience may not count if he does not have knowledge of the local culture of the wells and reservoirs in the coastal belt in North America. He can learn about the previous rig site capabilities and dangers from past records taken from reliable digital sources of oil and gas field data capture. Drilling managers are hired to improve performances and reduce costs due to their worldwide experience. They need to attend workshops and boardroom meetings for the next drilling expedition the company has hired them for. Hence, ‘drilling the well’ on paper is important. Then whether he is stationed on-site or remotely he monitors with precision. He can get geology experts to advice with the available data, logistics of getting the equipment on site before dealing with trained pump operators, in the planning stage. He chooses vendors, equipment and co-workers in advance. His goal is to have an accident-free, timely executed project to help the company to remain in business.
Decisions alter when a project goes live
Data capture is useful
A new oil well project should be approached with the best human resources, having knowledge, qualifications, and ability to analyze real-time data when the project is live. The stakes are always high for upstream companies. After a scripted well drilling plan in the boardroom, the situation may change when the project commences. That is why efficient managers rely on data-driven algorithms, behavior patterns and real information to make changes. Innovative ways of using data are thus important to any drilling programs. Automation, AI, and robotics in high-tech rig locations are favored by skilled engineers who monitor and control the sites. Reducing costs is not the only reason for their engagement, but the safety of the workers is equally important. This is why AIDC and now mobility are increasingly becoming an integral part of the oil and gas industry operations.
If your new project is still in the planning stage, the above information on data capture could be your best bet. Get in touch with a reliable technology partner to make it worth the investment.
