This paper discusses the "evolution" from Smart Well installations to the delivery of a fully integrated "Smart Field". Capabilities were first developed and tested in nearby fields before being applied in the Champion West field. Results and issues with the component Projects are discussed. The creation of a "Smart Field team" with representation from Petroleum Engineering, Well Engineering, IT, Control and Automation, Data Management/Application, Facility Engineering and Production Engineering is seen as a key enabler for a successful Smart Field development.
