The discussion of digital technology in our industry involves many terms — AI, big-data, process automation, to name a few. Such terminology is ubiquitous, but the digital revolution in our industry still slow; why? From a technical perspective, simply too many dry holes are still drilled. How do we improve these rates of return? Many prospects fail due to absence of reservoir, missing trap, and/or lateral seal, and these are the basics of geological and geophysical interpretation when evaluating prospect risk. Simply throwing data at the problem and applying analytics will not improve the chance of success. What is required in order for increased uptake of digital technologies is a substantial change in the application of workflows and best practices.
One intriguing area is the ability to communicate expert knowledge to a wider audience by ensuring availability of all data types in an integrated manner, making suggestions of required data, providing smart assistance to aid/improve QC, keeping logical project tracking, and having the ability to apply ‘what-if’ scenarios to capture geological uncertainties.
