The oil and gas industry is experiencing several initiatives with the objective to make offshore oil and gas developments competitive in this new world scenario for the oil business. The industry's natural reaction was to find ways to reduce costs of items in the entire supply chain. We can see initiatives of standardizations, frame agreements, supply chain cutting margins etc. There are some actions analyzing ways to move from complex designs to simple designs, avoiding bespoken projects that add cost with limited added value. All actions are focusing on improving the efficiency of the process, but still need to make it effective. It all may be considered incremental improvements, or enhancement of the usual process. It may not suffice to unlock challenging reservoirs in this current scenario, especially when many of those developments were not economically viable in the previous oil price scenario. Indeed, the marginal gain are improving the existing process, but not reviewing the process. Therefore, what else can be done? Where are the limitations for standardization and ways around it to make it effective? How do you reverse engineering from the economics to an acceptable reservoir performance, instead of the usual opposite approach? This session will address those challenging scenarios with the ongoing improvements of the process. It will also address and revisit the process itself, how it impacts the results with a reverse engineering approach for an effective solution.
