The complete paper describes some of the technical challenges faced in deepwater operations and the methodology adopted for implementing an integrated production surveillance and optimization (IPSO) system to mitigate the risks. The IPSO (deepwater-digital-oilfield) system is designed to be a combination of emerging information and communications technologies, intelligent algorithms, and fit-for-purpose asset-management work flows.

The IPSO System

The vision of the digital oil field is to foster an environment where work is performed with fit-for-purpose tools and streamlined work flows to measure, model, and control the field by enabling people to make the right decisions at the right time. This is enabled through a seamless decision hierarchy (Fig. 1) that achieves integrated asset management across business processes, the hydrocarbon value chain, and temporal scales.
