Measurement of the impact of digital energy solutions on asset performance continues to be a challenge. The performance impacts of digital energy solutions is difficult to measure primarily due to the fact that the impact of individual solutions cannot be isolated from the larger performance of the asset.

A collaborative work environment (CWE) is a common solution within the accepted portfolio of Digital Oilfield solutions. A CWE is a custom designed facility to support improved field management through the integration of people, process, and technology. CWEs are being embraced in the upstream industry as an effective way if designed well to manage challenges by improving decision-making, achieving higher quality analysis and interpretations, and effectively and efficiently using skilled resources.

As part of the CWE implementation, key performance indicators (KPIs) that drive collaborative behaviour were monitored and tracked over the lifecycle of the implementation. These key performance indicators monitored the impact of the CWE on:

  • Operational disruption management

  • Productivity and efficiency gains

  • Reduced operating costs

  • Competency/capability

  • Morale

This paper outlines the impact of a CWE implementation on asset performance through comprehensive analysis of identified key performance indicators. In addition, the paper draws round lessons learned and best practice for outlining and tracking KPIs for CWEs.
