On 26-27 April 2019 SPE held the first SPE Workshop on Integrated Field Management. The workshop took place in Moscow, Russia and gathered 50+ delegates from key operating and service companies including Gazprom Neft, LUKOIL, NOVATEK, Rosneft, Roxar, Schlumberger, Skoltech, Surgutneftegas, Tatneft, Zarubezhneft and others.
The topic "Integrated field management" was not coincidental. The challenges faced by the petroleum industry and rapid growth of innovative technologies create new approaches to the development of oil and gas production. Integrated management implies a range of solutions proposed by various companies like smart wells, digital fields (a topic covered by the SPE Workshops since 2013) and others. Integrated management principles can be applied to both greenfields and brownfields. The first two technical sessions of the workshop were devoted to these issues, the third session covered technological aspects of field management in the future — artificial intelligence use in oil and gas production.
The committee noted that most of the presentations caused a prolific discussion, which shows increased interest and knowledge of digital models and related processes in the oil and gas production.
The programme committee highlighted the following presentations:
1. Dmitriy Dmitriev, R.Panov, A.Mozhchil, D.Kondakov, Gazprom Neft Concept engineering functions automatization for oilfield development and infrastructure integrated design
2. Artem Varavva, R.Apasov, I.Perevozkin, R.Badgutdinov, Gazprom Neft ; V.Virt, Gazpromneft-Yamal
Approaches to oil rims integrated modeling in case of Novoportovskoe Oil-Gas-Condensate Field
3. Ksenia Antipova, Skoltech
Machine learning techniques for well design and drilling support.
SPE expresses its gratitude to the programme committee members and the participants for the cooperation and support!
