The storage and usage of data in the extraction industries is growing at an exponential rate. The number of organizations who are likely to hold a petabyte or more of data is predicted to grow from 1,000 to 100,000 over the next ten years. The biggest contributor to this increase is the dramatic rise in importance of real-time data and applications. Upstream organizations are now collecting and utilizing field extraction and production data in significant amounts. They are using real-time instrumentation and control systems and are sharing production data in order to optimize the performance of entire fields. In addition, more and more organizations are utilizing private cloud infrastructures to enhance data sharing and collaboration.
KEY, HIGH-IMPACT APPLICATION AREAS FOR ALL EXTRACTION INDUSTRIES ARE:
- Real-time data acquisition and management
- Reservoir management
- Well modeling
- 4D Seismic
- Smart wells
- Wireless remote operations
- Remote surveillance and security
- Remote communication and collaboration through voice and video
In all cases, the remote nature of extraction operations means that available network capacity is a substantial impediment to utilizing these applications to drive long-term production benefits.
