Intelligent Energy (iE) has been a major performance improvement initiative within many oil and gas companies for much of the last decade. It is therefore surprising to find that, although many companies have been successful, many continue to find it difficult to implement the change in the new way of working enabled by iE.
In particular companies have struggled to take pilot level programs and scale the implementation around a large and increasingly global organization.
This paper gives generic insights and lessons learned into the skilled practice of the application of iE drawn from experiences in several major oil and gas companies. It will explore such topics as:
the history and evolution of iE
value attainment and business cases
scaling of iE across an organization
step by step implementation of capabilities
the role of a central team
an example of where many of the learning's have been implemented
what is next for iE
It will also draw attention to some of the numerous pitfalls to be encountered along the way. It will finish by highlighting some of the new challenges and opportunities in iE.
