Digital Oil field technologies continue to gain ground and lead the march of the oil and gas industry into deeper and more difficult sites for exploration and production. Most of the companies have adopted these technologies, but many have failed to realize their full value due to various reasons, the most common of them being the absence of a process framework to adopt such technologies on a firmwide/ business unit level. As a consequence, companies continue to move into the digital age at a snail's pace largely due to isolated efforts of adopting these technologies by different groups and no firm-wide embedment. This paper recommends a well defined framework to enable the adoption of these technologies at all points of the business process. The framework spreads across the production operations part of the value chain and will enable companies to adopt technologies seamlessly at a faster pace realizing maximum benefits at optimal costs.
