Get the Best out of Assets in a Challenging and Dynamic Landscape
Unavoidable uncertainties and volatility in the industry have resulted in a significant continuous transformation in many oil and gas companies towards maximizing the lifecycle value of the hydrocarbon assets. The need to take a proactive action in enhancing the business workflows is compounding to improve efficiencies by simplifying processes, deploying innovative collaboration models, undertaking efforts to drive down the cost as we become more cash conscious, resetting mindset towards value and objective-driven as well as rethinking the commercial and contractual strategies in developing and managing the hydrocarbon assets.
This webcast is setting the scene for a series of talks and will touch upon some standards and process improvement at the industry level (with showcases from Malaysia) and its key principles and value impacts, focusing mainly on Integrated Asset Development & Management (IADM) throughout field/asset lifecycle from exploration stage down to decommissioning and abandonment stage with a focus on Field Development Projects.
In addition, it will also share an example of an innovative solution of resources management towards successful development plan formulation and asset management, that serve as a platform for putting together various elements of ideas and concepts, best practices and lessons learned, techno-commercial and data-driven initiatives, alternative industry-standard approaches and enabling technologies for IADM.
