Building on the success of the SPE Digital Energy and Intelligent Energy conferences held in Houston and Amsterdam, respectively, we have organized an international conference to address the key aspects of digital oilfield developments.
The focus of digital oilfield initiatives has shifted from planning and testing to deployment. Technologies have been tested and validated and continue to evolve. Challenges associated with managing sustainable strategies often involve people and process issues. The 2009 SPE Digital Energy Conference will examine these challenges and will emphasize case studies related to people, processes, and technology issues.
This year's program committee is comprised of outstanding industry experts and executives active in SPE International, the SPE Gulf Coast Section, the SPE Information Technology Technical Section, and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists.
Major topics of in-depth discussions, panels, and papers are
- Collaborative work environments
- Decision-support centers
- Real-time/remote operations centers
- Integrated workflows: formalization of new work processes
- Change management practices: the need for effective organizational change management
- System requirements to support collaboration
- Remote management of high-tech, high-risk operations: associated decision making and accountability
- Visualization technologies and techniques
- Case scenarios and lessons learned
Technology Commericialization Manager, Ultra-Deepwater Art Schroeder is chairing Session 5: Integrated Workflows I on April 7 at 1:30 p.m.
