19 EPMAG.COM | DATA-DRIVEN OIL FIELDS | JANUARY 2017 maintained optimized production despite fault conditions. Reli- able data delivery can result in up to 25% more output compared to ESPs running without data. The GFI gauge also allows the facil- ity to monitor cable health in real time, enabling proactive work- over planning and reduced downtime. Leveraging IT to deliver digital oilfield solutions, increase collaboration To be more efficient in a challenging market, operators need access to integrated well data for all their product service lines. To accomplish this, Halliburton released a digital oilfield data management platform, designed to provide secure access to comprehensive wellsite data. The beta service is currently de- ployed in the Gulf of Mexico and provides a user-friendly and intuitive interface that facilitates operational collaboration, decision-making, efficient workflows and teamwork among customers, product service lines and Halliburton employees. Additionally, field engineers and other users are able to realize efficiencies from optimized workflows, increased data accura- cy and decreased time for manual data entry. When new data are published to a well, users receive an automated email or text notifications with cloud storage features. Real-time integrated services will become the foundation of future business by con- necting data, technology, tools and people on a single enterprise platform. Enabling real-time geosteering, engineering and formation evaluation workflows The oil and gas industry needs a vendor and tool agnostic, integrated field development platform that combines well data, seismic and engineering parameters for better reservoir characterization and optimal well placement. As companies place increasing importance on the understanding of geo - mechanical properties around the wellbore, coupled with a greater push toward high-resolution, 3-D petrophysics and formation evaluation solutions, Paradigm's Geolog 8 acts as a key component within that platform, enabling real-time geosteering, engineering and formation evaluation workflows. Coupled with well data management capabilities, Paradigm's field development platform allows companies to assess the economic viability of potential oil and gas fields, streamline interpretations, improve recovery and reduce exploitation costs in existing fields. Actionable data for rapid and effective decision-making Rockwell Automation continues to leverage connectivity, con- trol and data-analytics technologies to add wellhead solutions to its ConnectedProduction portfolio. The rod pump controller currently offers a feature-rich solution to help operators opti- mize production at the well level. These functions include flu- id-pound prevention, fixed-speed pump fillage mode, fluid-lev- el estimation and three-phase production rate estimations. All of these functions make use of data collection, contextualization and analysis technologies to provide real-time information on the well performance and pump condition. The plunger lift, gas lift and electric submersible pump artificial lift controllers all have similar capabilities for data collection and real-time pro- cessing for well performance and equipment condition. Ad- ditionally, multiphase flow at the wellhead uses the Black Oil Model for real-time estimation of flow regime and flow rates for each phase. All of these offerings support flexible communication for connectivity to the most popular production SCADA sys- tems. The controllers also support Ethernet communications and standard protocols for connectivity to cloud platforms. The Rockwell Automation Connected - Production portfolio also offers standard dashboards for effective presentation of the information as well as automated workflows to support prescriptive maintenance processes. The ConnectedProduc - tion offerings from Rock- well Automation provide real-time information of the operating condition of an oil field. The aggrega- tion of information into key performance indicators presents operators with ac- Geolog 8 geomechanics development of a mechanical earth model for well planning and predrill geomechanical analyses is shown.
