New Directions for Oil & Gas Digitalization: What Opportunities for Subsurface?
While it’s apparent from industry announcements that oil and gas is fully embracing a more digitalized approach to many aspects of its business, it’s less clear what this means in practical terms. IHS Markit first offers a perspective on past digitalization efforts before highlighting the shifts that are underway. These new directions include an increasing prominence of technologies such as Advanced Analytics and Robotics/Drones, more predictive and automated workflows, and greater digitalization-enabled integration across functional and organizational boundaries – all resulting in real value for E&P organizations. These emerging capabilities offer substantial opportunities across the E&P value chain, with Subsurface an especially prominent target, if companies can get the technical and organizational components right.
