10:00 "You Can't Improve What You Can't Measure" - How Technology And People Will Enable Artificial Lift To Produce Continuously And Economically All Available Inflow With The Lowest Cost Of Lifting

For many years operators and production engineers have been promised the benefits of automation, digital oil field, artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data. While the promises are getting more audacious our costs of operating new, horizontal wells is not improving fast enough. But it doesn't have to be this way if we all focus on what really matters the most in our operations.

  • Evaluating traditional challenges in operating horizontal wells
  • Identifying the key operational data that can drive improvements
