Manage Fields With Intelligent Surveillance, Production Optimization, and Collaboration

Denney, Dennis (JPT Senior Technology Editor)


In general, all of Shell's new field developments, and redevelopments of existing fields, are equipped with appropriate smart-fields solutions. The elements selected in each field depend on its features and conditions. A screening process is carried out in the early stages of the project to identify requirements and opportunities for implementation. In some cases, application has changed the development concept completely (e.g., field development with smart wells and a remotely controlled platform). In other cases, solutions help improve field management.
