Abstract

Statoil has recently initiated an effort to develop a solution for integrated real-time environmental monitoring of its oil fields. The monitoring starts long before exploration and drilling begins and lasts until long after production is shut down, a period of more than 70 years. Throughout these 70 years, we can assume that every technology and component used in the system will change. Still, we need to understand and utilize data collected in an early phase of the oil field life cycle throughout the operational phase and well beyond the shutdown phase.

The solution is driven by software from the deepest ocean and into the cloud. In this presentation, we take a look at the architectural drivers and considerations that went into the overall design as well as some of the analysis methods used. Especially important are standards for data formats, data integration, data augmentation, and data exchange with other institutions working in the oceanographic domain
