This paper outlines how data acquisition, data analysis, and control actions, can be implemented remotely and in real time to enhance the reservoir and production management process. System components, their integration, and the opportunity they offer to implement reservoir and production management work processes based on real-time data will be discussed and exemplified. We will show how such a system can be implemented on a field. For this, we will utilize the planned installation of such a system in the Huldra gas/condensate field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. We will describe how "closed-loop control" for reservoir and production management will be implemented on this field, and give examples from work processes on real-time data leading to faster and better decision support, and, finally, decision making and implementation.
