Within ExxonMobil*, optimal "Digital Oilfield" opportunities are viewed as the application of digital technologies to improve and enhance existing, proven asset management processes, resulting in improved asset performance. This paper describes ExxonMobil's strategies, approaches, and examples of a consistent, systematic, global approach to applying advanced digital technology driven by the value added to established asset management processes.

Advances in information technology have created unique opportunities to further improve asset performance, specifically complementing ExxonMobil core execution strategies emphasizing technology leadership, functional excellence, and globally-standard asset management processes. By standardizing desktop hardware and software, creating data systems including globally-standard datastores and tools to broadly access data and maintain data quality, and developing and applying new technology to integrate and automate work, digital technology now allows ExxonMobil to further leverage its global functional organization to more-seamlessly integrate and automate its standard asset management processes.
