Whitepapers

  • Well Master Business Rules
    No modern enterprise information management environment would be complete without the techniques for validating data rules and compliance with data policies.  Effective data governance is a critical component of any Digital Transformation strategy.  Capturing the knowledge of the business in the form of business rules is one aspect of data governance that is of tremendous importance to the success of any corporate well data management initiative.  In this White Paper, we are focused on finite, tangible business rules that will impact the overall data architecture and integration interfaces that are difficult and expensive to change later.

  • Well Lifecycle:  Workflow Automation
    In the case of workflow automation, specifically, Digital Transformation enables organizations to streamline traditional manual and paper-based processes by integrating diverse systems, automating data movement, improving data quality, and standardizing notification requirements.  The oil and gas industry has made significant investments in the digitization of key engineering and operational areas including drilling, completion and production, as well as around asset management.  However, it still trails other industries in terms of the implementation of widespread integrated digital technology to drive workflow automation.  This White Paper will explore the key components of workflow automation from a conceptual perspective as they apply to upstream oil and gas.  Understanding Master Data Management (MDM) and how it fits into your data management strategy is foundational to deliver on the benefits of this type of automation.  As such, this position paper includes a high-level overview of MDM and how it supports workflow activities.

  • Digital Transformation in the Oil and Gas Industry – Learning from Others
    Digital Transformation changes business and operational models through the exploitation of new trends in technology and data including automation, big data analytics, cloud infrastructure and the Internet of Things.  The oil and gas industry has made significant investment in digitization in key operational areas including drilling and production, as well as asset management.  However, the industry lags behind other industries in terms of the implementation of widespread integrated digital technology to drive workflow automation.  This White Paper will explore the key challenges facing the oil and gas industry that have already been addressed by other sectors, and how the key technologies, organizational structures, and methodologies that have been adopted in other industries create a foundation for efficiency that can benefit oil and gas companies.

  • Data Objects as a Foundation for E&P Data Management
    Establishing common Data Objects for critical E&P information establishes a platform for effective data management and is a logical extension to accepted industry standards such as the PPDM ‘What is a Well?’ initiative.  
    Beyond simply defining the attributes that logically belong with a specific Data Object, however, the real value is derived by establishing the rules for the management and quality of the data associated with each object. This would include metadata to establish the origin and history of the object, the rules for required population of the object’s attributes, and the minimum data quality standards.  This paper discusses the definition and structure of common Data Objects, along with the benefits of adopting an industry approved set for the effective management of E&P data.

  • The Well Hierarchy as a Foundation for MDM: A Case Study
    Master Data Management (MDM) solutions provide the framework for delivering access to integrated data across the full Well lifecycle and, as such, have become a critical success factor for E&P companies. However, different groups of people within a company create and consume data at different Well levels depending upon their role. Effective integration of this data requires the ability to uniquely identify and relate a Well and all of its components at all levels. The resulting Well Hierarchy enables Well data to be integrated at the correct level across the full Well lifecycle and provides the foundation for successful master data management. This presentation details one approach to establishing the Well Hierarchy as a foundation for MDM. The findings are supported through a case study of a practical implementation.

  • What is a well? A Practical Implementation
    Details a practical approach to implementing the ‘What is a Well?’ and Well Identification standards to establish a Well Hierarchy within a Corporate Well Master and Master Data Management (MDM) solution.  The examples included are based upon solutions delivered to large independent oil and gas companies.

  • Implementing the Data Management Continuum
    Defines the phases of the data lifecycle from the automated collection and validation of ‘as-is’ data to the presentation of ‘workstation-ready’ data and the capture of resulting institutional knowledge.
