Halliburton Co. has received a contract from Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) on June 16 to expand the company’s digital transformation journey by implementing solutions to maximize operational efficiency and increase production. The scope applies to all Kuwait fields including West Kuwait, South and East Kuwait, and Heavy Oil, complementing a recently awarded contract for similar services in North Kuwait.
Halliburton will collaborate with KOC to accelerate their data-to-decisions cycle by implementing automated work processes and digital twins across KOC’s major assets. The solutions will leverage DecisionSpace® 365, Halliburton’s cloud-based subscription service for E&P applications, to automate work processes to accurately plan, forecast, and optimize production throughout the KOC portfolio. Built on an open architecture, the service integrates Halliburton and third-party technologies to enhance operational performance and increase ultimate recovery.
“This award signifies our strong relationship with KOC as we collaborate and innovate across their company-wide digital transformation initiatives,” Nagaraj Srinivasan, senior vice president of Landmark, Halliburton Digital Solutions and Consulting, said. “This contract further demonstrates Halliburton’s strategic priority to accelerate the adoption of our digital services. Our software and consulting services will support KOC to optimize their assets, reduce production costs and increase recovery.”
ConocoPhillips continues to find ways to improve through the use of refracs, simul-fracs and other technologies, says Jack Harper, former Concho exec now leading Conoco’s Permian Basin team.
Concho Resources agreed to form a JV with Frontier Midstream Solutions, which will build and provide crude oil gathering, transportation and storage services in the Northern Midland Basin.
