oil-rigAccenture and SAP have announced SAP Upstream Operations Management application, which would enable oil and gas companies to manage their production data

Johan Nell, upstream segment lead of Accenture, said, “At a time when oil and gas companies need to optimise recovery due to decreasing production in conventional fields and marginally performing unconventional wells, SAP Upstream Operations Management can quickly identify under-performing wells and the underlying causes so that companies can develop action plans to get back on track.”

According to SAP, the new management application could replace multiple legacy tools used to support the end-to-end process for field data capture, production allocation and deferment management by consolidating operational processes and detailed production information into a single enterprise system.

“Because the application is deeply integrated into SAP software, we can leverage the integrated data model from production and maintenance to finance and accounting information. This allows operators to ask new questions such as ‘What is my well-by-well profitability?’ or ‘Which unplanned maintenance events are causing me the biggest production upsets?’ The insight this can bring is essential when operators are dealing with an increasingly diverse mix of assets with higher well counts and complex production environments,” added Nell.

The data management application could run on the SAP HANA platform and can process complex production scenarios. Since SAP Upstream Operations Management provides a single view of production volumes, it could run an entire organisation’s set of production networks in a single instance, stated SAP.

Groegor-Cechowicz, global vice-president of SAP, noted that the new application allows operators to understand performance across the company with a scalable enterprise platform from SAP. “We help oil and gas companies ‘run simple’ by enabling production managers to allocate volumes back to the wellhead, providing maintenance managers with capabilities to view and plan activities across an operations network, allowing asset managers to link data across assets, including the well level,” he said.
