Success in offshore operations is all about good decision making - particularly around risk, asset integrity, maintaining production and procurement.

The digital technology we have does not make decisions, it supports professional decision makers who work with the digital technology, particularly by helping them maintain situation awareness.

In this conference, we explored how digital technology can support professionals to maintain situation awareness and make better decisions.

- How a 'digital asset' or digital model of a real asset can support decision making
- How analytics can help support decision makers
- Helping drilling crew and management get a better understanding of the risk situation and quality of safety barriers
- How to better work with brownfield / legacy data and documents and get data from them
- Better decision support tools for production engineers, taking into account what worked in the past

The role of the Smart Digital Asset in optimizing offshore operations efficiency, safety and predictability

Talk Description
A prerequisite for the successful implementation of digital work processes on an offshore industrial facility is a high quality description of the facility design and configuration, the “digital twin”.

How can this be provided for legacy facilities that are 10 to 20 years old or even older? How can facility owners ensure that new facilities and extensions to legacy facilities are delivered with a high quality digital twin that meets their needs for digital operations?

This presentation will look at state of the art processes to ensure capture of the digital twin and international standardization efforts to define requirements for handover.

Once the digital twin is established how can this be leveraged across the operations enterprise IT landscape for use in ERP, reliability, ISSoW and other systems to improve operations safety, efficiency and predictability?

This presentation will examine how interoperability between the digital twin and other operations systems can promote Operational Excellence, reduce errors and enable better and faster decision making by providing the correct information in context.

A pragmatic approach to data quality to drive value and manage risk in offshore operations

Talk Description
Analytics plays an ever-growing role in offshore operations. However, the quality of data used in these analytics is rarely considered in a formal, consistent and extensive manner. We show examples of how analytics techniques can be applied to data quality to drive more precise positioning in drilling operations, and better understanding of equipment behaviour in geophysical operations. We show an approach to data quality that enables a stronger risk and value assessment of offshore operations.
Duncan Irving is the Oil & Gas Consulting Team Lead, EMEA & APAC with Teradata. Duncan joined Teradata from the University of Manchester where he instructed in geophysical interpretation and geocomputational methods for the last seven years. He was involved in consulting and research projects involving user interactions with massive subsurface datasets and more general upstream data management, and he continues to maintain research links as an honorary lecturer. One long term project was with Teradata and he drove the development of Teradata's capabilities in the Upstream Oil and Gas area. This time provided him with a deep understanding of the capabilities of Teradata and how they can best be used in the petroleum industry.
He is a geophysicist and also has a PhD in glacial geophysics and geotechnical engineering (why frozen ground moves faster during climate warming and how this affects infrastructure). Duncan lives in the hills outside Manchester with his wife and three children. He is a mountaineer, fell runner and is a card-carrying member of the CAMpaign for Real Ale.
