The use of real-time collaboration and exception management solutions can help you optimally leverage the investments made on real-time operation centers (RTOCs) and data management systems, and maximize utilization of scattered experts and resources to handle more critical situations from anywhere and anytime. These solutions leveraging modern Web 2.0 technologies will help you optimize the overall exploration and drilling operations by reducing rig downtime, mitigating risk, improving asset utilization, maximizing reservoir contact and increasing economic production. This paper discusses the prerequisites, implementation considerations, lessons learned and benefits of real-time collaboration and alert management systems, and the opportunities such systems offer to bring operational innovation in the E&P community and to find effective ways to address the new age energy industry challenges.
