Abstract

This paper discusses the implementation of an intelligent operating system for oilfield processing. It examines the infrastructure of this intelligent software system, from the database backend to the graphical user interface (GUI) frontend. Oilfield processing generally includes the measurement and analysis of reservoirs, controlling oil or gas production flow through the wellbore, risers and manifolds operation, and wellhead operations, then proceeds to the flare point or transportation out from the production facilities. This paper describes how the system can be applied to upper stream oil and gas production management and forecasting. An intelligent solution was used for the research described in this paper. Several sample workflows were implemented for the proof of concepts. The study results indicate that the selected system met all requirements and prove that an integrated and completed system can reduce both human error and operating costs. The system also includes sufficient flexibility to apply to other industrial applications, such as assembly and manufacturing processes.
