This paper explores a specific area of the upstream transformation innovation stage. Innovated new ways of increasing production and operation efficiency can be achieved from solutions developed in other industries. Energy companies have begun the innovation stage of deploying modular procedural automation (MPA) at on-shore oil/gas fields and at off-shore production platforms. The basis of MPA, its growth and development will be explained and upstream solutions that are occurring today will be introduced.
