In 2017, well completion was the second largest overall expenditure accounting for over 25% of the total services market. Macroeconomic volatility is forcing the industry to make step changes towards productivity, and as digital transformation accelerates, unconventional field development is uniquely poised to benefit from this shift. Cloud computing is enabling this transformation. The cloud unlocks the potential of machine learning and online collaboration in the new Age of Big Data.

This presentation demonstrates use cases via Emerson’s Cloud Native Applications, custom written on the cloud for well placement and completion optimization, challenging the traditional siloed approach.  Our Hybrid Clouds run some software locally while other components are remote.  These applications highlight a new digital operations model where accessibility, mobility and real-time decisions are at the core of field development achieving unparalleled operational performance.
