Abstract The execution phase of the wells technical assurance process is a critical procedure where the drilling operation commences and the well planning program is implemented. During drilling operations, the real-time drilling data are streamed to a real-time centre where it is constantly monitored by a dedicated team of monitoring specialists. If any potential issues or possible opportunities arise, the team will communicate with the operation team on rig for an intervention. This workflow is further enhanced by digital initiatives via big data analytics implementation in PETRONAS. The Digital Standing Instruction to Driller (Digital SID) is a drilling operational procedures documentation tool meant to improve the current process by digitalizing information exchange between office and rig site. Boasting multi-operation usage, it is made fit to context and despite its automated generation, this tool allows flexibility for the operation team to customize the content and more importantly, monitor the execution in real-time. Another tool used in the real-time monitoring platform is the dynamic monitoring drilling system where it allows real-time drilling data to be more intuitive and gives the benefit of foresight. The dynamic nature of the system means that it will update existing roadmaps with extensive real-time data as they come in, hence improving its accuracy as we drill further. Furthermore, an automated drilling key performance indicator (KPI) and performance benchmarking system measures drilling performance to uncover areas of improvement. This will serve as the benchmark for further optimization. On top of that, an artificial intelligence (AI) driven Wells Augmented Stuck Pipe Indicator (WASP) is deployed in the real-time monitoring platform to improve the capability of monitoring specialists to identify stuck pipe symptoms way earlier before the occurrence of the incident. This proactive approach is an improvement to the current process workflow which is less timely and possibly missing the intervention opportunity. These four tools are integrated seamlessly with the real-time monitoring platform hence improving the project management efficiency during the execution phase. The tools are envisioned to offer an agile and efficient process workflow by integrating and tapering down multiple applications in different environments into a single web-based platform which enables better collaboration and faster decision making.
