  • Unveiling the Asset Value through Integrated Production System & Data Analysis

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    This webinar will focus on pragmatic and innovative, yet simple tactics, to unhide low-risk high-value opportunities in the assets through Integrated Production System & Data Analysis (IPSDA). The overall objective of this session is to generate value efficiently, through improved reservoir and surveillance management, understanding of potential and opportunities, and operating reservoir and production/facility system efficiently. Participants will gain knowledge of risks and uncertainties at the earlier stage while looking at the potentials of any field development, to help facilitate mid-long term decision making in creating value throughout the field life.

  • Unlocking Producing Oilfields’ Potential through Rethinking Development and Mindset Change in Low Price Future

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Among the key aspects and strategies of Integrated Asset Development & Management (IADM) on enhancing values in hydrocarbon assets are embracing innovative and out-of-box technical and commercial solutions to monetize economically challenging remaining barrels from the producing and mature oil fields. Significant remaining recoverable oil volumes are found in producing and brownfields, especially offshore Malaysia. Historically, mature field infill redevelopment campaigns have been considered as piecemeals, focusing on bigger targets, with multiple revisits stretching over many years.
