Innovation to transform the energy future - How digitalization enables oil and gas operators to transition to a new energy ecosystem
24 August 2018

The oil and gas landscape is changing…

Innovation to transform the energy future is a new Guide from ABB that addresses many of the challenges facing oil and gas operators as they transition to a new energy ecosystem. The world is demanding more energy and consumers are insisting that it be produced and delivered in new ways. As a result, oil and gas operators are rising to address future energy challenges surrounding security, affordability and sustainability. The Guide identifies other key drivers affecting the transition and offers operators advice on how to build their own digital energy strategies.

Rapid Asset Valuation using SpeedWise® Portfolio Analysis
24 August 2018

Date: Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Time: 10-11 AM Central Daylight Time

In this webcast, experts in big data present a new systematic process for the evaluation of oil and gas asset portfolios, where the performance and economic value of the entire portfolio are computed very quickly. The automation of this workflow relies on a proprietary data-driven solution that contains key technological components, including patented mathematical algorithms that analyze information for an entire portfolio of fields, such as decline rates, decline trends, recent well performance, field/well/operator ranking and reserves.  The final deliverable is a fully interactive user-interface (UI) with key performance indicators (KPIs) that allows the user to review the history, current condition and expected future performance of the portfolio.  This technology has been effectively used in the valuation of oil and gas portfolios for M&A, asset evaluations for A&D, and to prioritize future investments by obtaining a high-level, up-to-date understanding of all assets in a portfolio.
