The concept of “Intelligent Field” is becoming a promising strategy in the oil and gas industry. This approach includes several levels (components) of information management:

  1. Data gathering system (data channels, data transmitters);

  2. Data processing and analysis (simulation and monitoring tools);

  3. Data integration solutions;

  4. Feedback (well response, ESP frequency response).

This paper describes the application of the data gathering and integration process supported by the data processing and simulation tools in the Southern License Territory (SLT) of Priobskoye Field (West Siberia). The proposed solutions provide a suitable base for daily monitoring of problematic elements with the appropriate feedback to the related services if a problem occurs.

These solutions were implemented to monitor the production process in the SLT of Priobskoye field, they were successfully used to reach the main goals:

  1. Gathering of the field information in real time;

  2. Introduction of the tool to control artificial lift production for our technologists;

  3. Access to the information about problematic wells at least once per day;

  4. Visual and analytical reports related to problematic wells;

  5. Field development planning and monitoring tools for specialists involved in waterflood simulation and management.

The results of this work can be used to analyze the learning process, to evaluate the prospects of “return on investments” put into the simulation models, which in our case are constantly upgraded and used in work. The important result of this project is a transparent and fast decision-making process supporting oil production activities.
