Digital Oilfield Technology Is A Key Trend In The Oil & Gas Upstream Activities Industry

Oil and gas extraction companies around the world are investing heavily in digital oilfield technology to enhance oil and gas production. Digital oil fields integrate advanced software, hardware, and data analysis techniques to collect real-time data from the oilfield. They consist of visualization, product surveillance, integrated decision making, and remote communication systems. Digital technologies in oil fields include high-performance drill bits, advanced electrical submersible pumps, and 3D seismic imaging and reservoir modelling. Oilfields digitization facilitates efficient utilization of human resources and thus optimizes the profitability of oil production. This technology is changing the competitive landscape with a fact that an increase in production efficiency by ten percentage points can yield an impact of $220 million to $260 million on the bottom-line. According to IHS CERA, digital oilfield implementation leads to increase in oil production by 2 to 8%and reduction in operating expense by 5 to 25%. For instance, some of the major companies investing in digital oilfields include Noble Corp, Statoil and Apache Corp.

Major players covered in the global oil & gas upstream activities industry are Saudi Aramco, Rosneft, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, ADNOC, Iraq Ministry of Oil.

The global oil & gas upstream activities market size is expected to grow from $2635.45 billion in 2020 to $3335.52 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.6%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges.
