Speaker(s) Yun Yun Teo - IHS Markit, David Reid - National Oilwell Varco, Waldemar Szemat - Schlumberger, William Gu - SembCorp Marine, Johan Surewaard - Shell
As the petroleum industry recovers from market lows and business recovers, we ask ourselves, what is next? This panel session shall discuss these and other appropriate topics including:
- Rig utilisation forecasts
- Regions for future growth
- Rig types for expansion: Land, shelf, deep or ultra-deep water
- Rig retirements, cold vs warm stacking and reactivation
- Shipyard activity: Upgrades vs new build construction
- New technologies in rig components or service delivery
- Data management and work processes
-Partnerships between drilling contractors and drilling service providers

The industry's needs to position for recovery and forecasting is an integral component in the planning for next phase. Identifying both type of rig and regions for growth will advance the planning for the next stage of activity.

Drilling Rigs will continue to be retired, however many others will return from stacking to active operation. There is opportunity to support the industry's recovery by introducing and applying new technology, data management, work processes and operating philosophies. This includes adding new rig components through new builds and rig upgrades as well as rig and service provider alliances to offer streamlined solutions. We need to be positioned for the evolution of our drilling industry.

Long term, high risk E&P investment demands a fair return. Our industry has to achieve a reasonable margin in producing hydrocarbons despite the current oil price to sustain growth. To succeed in this effort, the industry must recognise and exploit the crucial role digital transformation plays.

Evolving digital transformation is widening boundaries in reshaping E&P methodologies to prepare for big crew change and future resource optimisation. We should guide digital transformation by promoting its application to achieve continuous efficiencies in mature fields as this is where big data is. Big data presents outstanding opportunities for digitalisation, such as automating entire work processes of repetitive activities and optimise resources, where there is less experienced personnel.

Big data needs to be a long-term focus in optimising mature fields production and operations. It is crucial to remain open to innovation and form smart collaborations to stimulate progress for more step-change for full value chain optimisation. In addition, automation capability is essential as it enable us to plan ahead or perform heavy-front-end, loading work that not only ensures that we are efficiently improving existing asset values, but also provide sufficient lead time to effectively manage external factors, such as regulatory changes and fiscal regime, engaging other stakeholders as well as efficiently structure contract strategies.

The oil and gas industry has already started to implement digital technologies and solutions across E&P workflows. Steps include more effective data analytics, utilising artificial intelligence and predictive software in all phases of field management, and maximising asset values of a field.

Fiscal policies need to be restructured to fit current reality. Regulators and operators should focus on standardising well design and modular facility for field development based on offset data while restricting detailed engineering to frontier areas with limited analogues. More responsibility with limited experience mandates the industry to have adequate digital guidance, stringent personnel training and certification to ensure efficiency, quality and HSE preservation.

Traditional E&P contracting of specialist service companies, supervised by discipline experts and layers of project managers has to undergo a paradigm shift towards greater delegation of risk and responsibility within agreed contract boundaries. A lead contractor of a consortium can deliver bundled services or small E&P projects to pre-set goals, costs or incentives. An integrated service provider should be encouraged to operate service intensive projects, such as, marginal and late life fields on pre-set return basis.

In the current dynamic environment, improvements in drilling technologies to increase efficiency and/or improve ultimately recovery, are essential for the sustainability and viability of the industry. Technological innovations and innovative management techniques are very important to overcome the current challenges for new project feasibility. Without some new techniques in drilling and completions to reduce development costs and improve ultimate recovery, many projects will not pass their economic feasibility hurdle. R&D has been severely reduced by operators and service companies through this downturn, so a new paradigm of working together or looking for ideas and concepts that is outside our current technology envelope, may be needed. Lowering the cost base of new developments, and or, significantly improving the recovery, are necessary if not vital, to develop many now marginal and even more sizable fields. How can collaboration in the oil and gas industry between NOC, IOC, Drilling Contractors and Service Companies be fostered, so as to enable new technologies, practices and key lessons learned in previous periods of low oil prices, to come to the market, be tested and implemented successfully. This panel assembles experts with extensive experience and a range of diverse expertise to discuss issues, new technologies, ideas and practices for reducing costs in drilling and completion, as well as any techniques, that might significantly enhance recovery. This will enable new and now many more fields, that have joined the ranks of marginal status, become viable developments.

Training Course: Data Analytics for Drilling Optimisation
Ticketed Event
Instructor(s) Dr Carlos Damski, Genesis Petroleum Technologies

In today’s world, traditional methods of drilling oil wells don’t work as much anymore. Yesterday’s practices are being superseded by a universal trend towards the extensive use of historical and real-time data to understand, learn and predict all well intervention operations.

This course explores the impact of data analytics on well operations. Drawn from the presenter’s extensive experience in data analysis, it examines, in easily understandable terms, today’s data management processes targeting process improvement.


  • Basic concepts of data management with emphasis in drilling operations
  • Methods of using data as a basis for improving and optimizing process control
  • Achieving a common understanding of the issues involved among information technology personnel and field engineers
  • A roadmap for the implementation of a drilling process improvement system
  • Business Intelligence as the ultimate goal of data management processes
  • Discussions about data acquisition, quality control, storage, retrieval and analyses
  • Understanding concepts for operational time and trouble analyses, learning curve, technical limit and benchmarking
  • Real business cases to illustrate the concepts explored in the course
