快速追踪我们的页岩资产

Finding new applications for existing technologies helps us meet our long-term goals for our base business, new assets and new projects. At the Marcellus and Utica shale plays in the eastern United States, we’ve successfully deployed fiber-optic technology in two horizontal wells – the first time we’ve applied the technology in this way. Installed with production casing and cemented in the well, fiber optic provides real-time surveillance data during well completion and offers long-time surveillance benefits throughout the life of a well. Collaboration by multiple teams from different functions was key to applying the technology in deep, complex wells measuring more than 14,700 feet in length. The payoff is in improved key business decisions in an aggressive, cost-conscious drilling and completions program – leading to more effective completion practices, improved well integrity, and increased long-term production from our unconventional assets.

new ways
to run our refineries

Resembling NASA Mission Control, the Refinery Optimization Center (ROC) at our El Segundo (Calif.) Refinery is a high-tech, 38,000-square-foot control room designed to centralize the plant's operations. With its 36 big-screen monitors, 24 miles of communications cables, seven miles of fiber optic cable, and two miles of copper electrical systems, the ROC enhances the refinery’s efficiency, environmental stewardship and reliability. The ROC churns input from refinery operators who use handheld devices to collect and analyze equipment surveillance data, helping to confirm that everything is working properly.

博士illing a smaller footprint

environmentally sound operations

We have a strong commitment to safe, environmentally sound operations in all of our businesses. Our technology strengthens this commitment. Creating a center to monitor our complex wells enhances our focus on safe, environmentally responsible performance. Other automated monitoring operations will ensure that our large equipment runs safely and presents no environmental risk, whether the facility is an oil rig or a refinery. And by using fiber-optics technology to improve our cementing and completion practices and well integrity, we add another level of safety and environmentally sound drilling practices to our shale and other unconventional asset operations.

building a reliable future

managing our assets wolfcamp

We have a long history of innovating in our use of automation and other new technological initiatives. We pioneered the integrated field, or i-field®, an operational transformation philosophy driving enhanced and optimized operating processes. More than a decade ago, our original i-field® effort in North America delivered hundreds of millions in cost savings and improved output. Since then, we’ve turned fields and facilities into i-field® laboratories, incubators and proving grounds to transform and reinvent workflows.

Today, automation is optimizing what we do across our operations. It’s helping to increase productivity, streamline projects, cut costs and add to our reliability. This trend will continue to support our base business, new assets and new projects. And as we integrate more elaborate technological solutions into our operations, we’ll gear up for new targets while keeping a constant focus on asset reliability.
