Halliburton Co. introduced Digital Well Operations, a DecisionSpace 365 cloud solution, on Oct. 8. Digital Well Operations is the industry’s first open and integrated well operations software that seamlessly connects the entire value chain—operators, service providers, logistics providers and rig providers—to deliver more efficient and safe wells.
Digital Well Operations connects the rig site and field workers to remote operation centers using Live Plan, which is a digital twin of the well. It creates and maintains real-time views of each well phase bringing design and execution together to increase operational efficiency and lower well construction costs.
Based on open architecture, the solution integrates with the Halliburton Digital Well Program for a seamless end-to-end well construction workflow. The Digital Well Operations solution includes four plug-and-play products: Well Operations Monitor, Real-Time Well Engineering, Real-Time Control–Edge and Real-Time Solution. Digital Well Operations is available on iEnergy, the industry’s first hybrid cloud designed to deploy, integrate and manage E&P applications on the public cloud or a private cloud with iEnergy Stack.
Digital Well Operations can leverage third party and operator engineering and artificial intelligence, machine learning models and advisory systems. This creates a unified experience for improved drilling automation. The solution is built on a variety of industry standards like Energistics and Open Sub Surface Data Universe (OSDU).
“We are excited to release Digital Well Operations, a ground-breaking solution to help operators execute, monitor and optimize well programs by automating processes, enabling remote operations and delivering drilling automation,” Nagaraj Srinivasan, senior vice president of Landmark and Halliburton Digital Services and Consulting, said. “Along with our Digital Well Program, Digital Well Operations will transform our customers’ end to end well construction process and enhance collaboration across the value chain to reduce well construction costs.”
Energy scholar Robert Bryce offers an unabashed view of the shale revolution, climate change and the future of energy. Spoiler alert: don’t expect oil and gas to disappear anytime soon.
The Scoop and Stack plays are still in the money but only with improved well spacing and effective management of frac-driven interactions.
Leasing hot spots, improved drilling metrics and more reveal some silver lining in the cloud hanging over Midcontinent producers.
