1. Are we addressing the right problem?
Often the offshore team and onshore team work in isolation. They use different data sources or management systems. Both teams believe they are addressing the right problem, but both are sorting through different issues. The result is a failure to address crucial elements of overall operations.
For example: Subsea intervention work, needed to rectify downhole water injection capability, is being executed by the subsea team. Unfortunately, since the work is not planned and recognised by the global work management system, the platform crew was not aware of the need to reinstate the seawater treatment package to ensure water suitable for injection is available. The crew instead is focused on their high priority structural integrity repairs.
Our Advisian approach not only provides a professionally structured workshop to holistically assess production and integrity of the operations, but also offers digital data tools and software platforms that can be used to assist with cleansing data, defining interfaces and linking disparate data management systems. This ensures the information around the organisation is centralised, easily accessible and visible to decision makers in order to remove the siloed approach to managing assets.
2. Do we understand the acceptable level of risk?
In today’s low oil price environment, there is increasing pressure to fully understand risk so that spend can be optimised. Cash flow significantly influences OPEX spend.
