Qatar Petroleum (QP) is implementing intelligent oil field (IOF) concept in its operated field. This paper traces the development of projects which are completed as well as which are in progress. The paper also presents a case of how Dukhan oil field is well positioned to move towards a fully integrated intelligent oil field.
Successful IOF implementation can yield increased operational performance and extend field life through collaboration, optimized work processes and advanced technology.
Dukhan field present status was assessed using the maturity model and a roadmap for implementation was suggested. For the last ten years, Dukhan operations have moved steadily towards real time monitoring, control and infrastructure capabilities.
