SPE Workshop: Data Enabled Operational Excellence - The Value of Information in Oilfield Operations 16 - 17 May 2017 Hotel Kongress Leoben Leoben, Austria

Operational Excellence is a long-term goal to introduce sustainable changes in culture and operations. Digital Oilfield and Integrated Operations have been started as strategies 15 years ago and are still not implemented mainstream. Will current low oil prices hinder all these long-term goals while quarterly reports are key today? How will data help to get culture change and strategy implemented in a sustainable way? This workshop wants to put new ideas and related lessons learnt on the table to be discussed. The industry is still struggling with proper field data acquisition, integration and quality control – after all these years.

Progress in information technologies has led to more robust and effective solutions for production operations. Real-time monitoring devices are becoming the norm, providing large volumes of data. Nevertheless many operators still struggle to retrieve value out of these investments. Properly planned data acquisition, data integration, preparation and enrichment is still an issue due to migrating data to actionable information.

What is an SPE Workshop?

An SPE workshop is a multi-day event that fosters knowledge sharing in an intensive learning experience. It provides highly focused technical topics through presentations and extensive Q&A. 

The workshop’s program committee members solicit presentations from top industry professionals. This ensures a robust technical program with presentations that are laser focused on critical industry topics.

Since proceedings are not published, SPE workshops provide an environment for frank, open discussion. Presentations are provided to participants after the workshop, if approved for release.

Presentations may not have promotional or commercial elements, so the agenda is truly an objective review of the technical topics.
