This paper describes one application of Right-Time analysis of continual field measurements as used in a high-rate HPHT field in the North Sea. Many sensors and devices in the field are available for constant monitoring at the reservoir manager's desk, yet, we are still faced with the challenge of transforming all this raw streaming data into useful information. Data is regularly used to identify anomalies in the classical Field Automation sense. At medium-long term, however, it ought to be used to identify well and reservoir signatures that help in Formation Evaluation, and for reservoir management and planning. This rarely happens because the analysis involved – which includes highly technical disciplines – simply cannot be automated by computer. This makes it vital to be able to streamline these activities and to deliver the associated analysis as a turnkey service to the Field Operator.
