12:00-13:00 Digital technologies for reservoir optimization

As digital technologies emerge and mature, some are seeking new ways to of optimizing not only equipment, machinery, and production operations, but also the performance of the reservoir itself. History tells us that legacy technologies can be improved substantially, but breakthroughs can often come from unexpected places. This panel will explore ways in which operators are deploying data and analytics to improve production, EUR and ultimately the economics of the asset, and also some new ways of approaching the age-old problem of reservoir optimization that hold significant promise for the future.

16:00-16:30 COFFEE BREAK
16:30-17:30 Technology Showcase Hosted by Scottish Enterprise and the OGTC

A display the latest innovations from digital disrupters at the cutting edge of predictive analytics, automation, and data science

Digital innovations that we will be highlighting include:

  • Intelligent Plant - the Intelligent App Story makes your Plant data available to the growing number of apps that are in the Industrial App Store. Big Data Apps, Analytics, Machine Learning, Downtime reduction – Equipment Fault diagnosis, Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and many other problems are covered in the App Store where multiple vendors can choose to make capabilities available to industry
  • ThinkTank Maths Applications of ThinkTank Maths’ Trusted Reasoning Architecture in the oil and gas sector range from automated drilling and fast-loop production control to system-level situation awareness. Decision aids based on this Architecture help to avoid the risk of information overload, enabling human operators to focus on the most critical decisions, with significant advantages in terms of cost, safety and environmental impact
  • OPEX Group’s unique Predictive Analysis Service, X-PAS™, bridges the gap between data science and oil and gas operations, using existing infrastructure and data sources to provide operators with new information about their asset and the ability to accurately predict the future performance of production critical systems
  • Goshawk - At Goshawk, our drones are designed to help operators reduce inspection costs by over 50% however, more importantly getting valuable assets back on line much quicker or preventing initial shut down to do exploratory inspection work scopes. Some instances can see assets back on line up to 80% faster than traditional methods, adding 10’s of millions to the balance sheets.
  • University of Aberdeen - Traditional seismic data analysis is built on a 2D analysis platform, and visualisation techniques are also based on 2D methods, even those purporting to be in 3D.  New technology developed at the University of Aberdeen will allow a truly 3D analysis and visualisation platform for seismic data.  Our work includes a full process flow of data analysis and optimisation in 3D which is automated as much as possible before visualising the results in an immersive 3D environment.
