Digital Transformation in Oil & Gas

Big Data and Digital Transformation will enable tremendous breakthroughs in the oil and gas industry. The industry’s technical complexity and financial risks underscore the need for the improved visibility, operational efficiencies, and risk mitigation that advanced analytics can provide. Big Data helps streamline key oil and gas manufacturing operations, while advances in artificial intelligence, sensors, and analytics provide incredible opportunities for efficiencies and innovation.

Sharing data is the cornerstone of digital transformation.  Whether asset-specific or operational, data can be unstructured or poor quality. This requires significant effort to cleanse and aggregate data before it can be analyzed.  Although sensors are ubiquitous and inexpensive, and bytes are cheaper than atoms, the actual data collection, aggregation, analysis storage and maintenance can be costly.

Organizations seeking to unlock the potential of big data and digital transformation require access to industry leaders and best practices for identifying, developing, and implementing these digital solutions. ASME has developed several opportunities to bridge the gap between data science, engineering and industry knowledge, and business needs to provide real value to the industry.

Guideline on Big Data/Digital Transformation Workflows and Applications for the Oil and Gas Industry
 

To accelerate technology adoption and effectively address business challenges, a set of standards and/or recommended practices is needed. To unlock the potential of Big Data, the industry needs a standardized and efficient end-to-end workflow to validate the quality of the data, and subsequently, the accuracy of the results from the analysis.

ASME has developed a guideline document to define Big Data and its useful applications to upstream, midstream, and downstream businesses. This reference document provides a framework for understanding and a workflow for using data analytical techniques to solve business problems, serving as a roadmap of data-driven projects for both data and technical professionals. Success in implementing new digital technologies also requires a cross-functional expert team including domain specialists, IT experts, hardware and software vendors, data scientists, engineers, and geoscientists. System interoperability requires effective communication and a common language. The ASME guideline provides definitions of common terminology to bridge the vocabulary and cultural gap between data scientists and technical professionals, which is essential for common understanding and effective implementation.
