This paper outlines an extract of a software model for digitalization of the processes supporting upstream activities for onshore and offshore fields. Digitalization in this context means full automation of planning and a step change in the daily well integrity work. The planning process will produce digital programs and proceduresunderstandable to humans and computers. The software comprises building blocks for every engineering calculation. These are interlinked andconstructed such that their planning capacity can be improved by the users. Today, humans drive every step in engineering and planning. Digital well planning and operations will shift the role of humans towards feeding the planning process with experiences in digital format. Changing from text based learning to digital experience will improve planning and operations. Digitalization can also provide digital standards, governing documentation and automate administrative routines such as invoicing.
Visualization of wells, their components, barrier envelopes and elements from plan to "as installed" will form a 3D interactive interface where users of different roles can retrieve information and see relevant engineering, modelling and integrity status. The software is planned to be cloud based and exploit local graphics hardware for optimal performance and response.
This article gives an introduction to the planned functionality of a new Digital Life Cycle Well Integrity Model (LCWIM) which is under development. In addition to an overview of the functionality, digitalization is exemplified by automation of one of the LCWIM modules, namely casing wear prediction. The LCWIM will produce digital programs and procedures, which is a foundation for the next step in digitalization: automation of the drilling process. The focus of this paper is to depict a digital work process concerning well planning giving input to the operational phase and well integrity.
