Emerson and StepChange Global have combined technology and consulting expertise to help producers increase production by developing best practices with Integrated Operations (iOps) and Digital Oilfield
Both companies claim that by using new iOps tools and techniques, an oil production company can see efficiency improvements of up to two per cent.
The two companies emphasized that an enterprise can build confidence in its information and trust among extended teams, implementing improvements that include improving operator efficiency and optimizing its core operational processes.
Emerson’s technology and StepChange Global’s consultants say they can help improve collaboration between the operational site and the support teams in the office in order to maximize the value that can be gained from operating asset information./p>
“The oil field major players see Integrated Operations as a transformational programme to optimise their business performance, and is the way they will work in the future,” said Tony Edwards, StepChange Global CEO.
“Performance optimisation is required as the industry struggles with falling oil prices, key skill shortages, and risk reduction and compliance requirements for both Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) and production.”
“Working with StepChange helps us drive increased production efficiency for our customers,” said Jerry Brown, senior vice president of Emerson’s industry solutions.
“We are reducing operations and maintenance OPEX costs by improving visibility of real-time actionable asset information across multiple remote sites and oilfields.”
