Drilling and well teams typically has incredibly strong engineers but management principles has not been updated with technology and corporate innovations over the last decade. Use this article-of-lists for inspiration. Share if you like it, on LinkedIn or email or wherever you meet your peers.
First things first. To get to new horizons, we need to ask questions. Ask yourself: "How will well planning evolve?" If your answer is, "Pretty much the same," then promise yourself to read this question again in three minutes, when you have read the rest of this article. And do post your comments!
Here are a few guidelines, in a handy list format:
This requires a bit more explanation. Let's say someone has a question for you with a different angle than what you have looked at: "How many times did we drill with this overbalance in that formation?" If you can't search and find that answer, forward a figure or some documentation without opening a text editor or a presentation tool, you are in the 80's.
More lists, your brain loves lists.
How do you handle the complexity of drilling and well projects?
Tools in your workflow should extract the information you want to share with your stakeholders. If you are looking at weather data for the last week, you get the data beautifully presented from a third party cloud service. If you are comparing the ten last operations, you need a week in excel and .pdf's. The weather data could have been stored in a text document, saved as a .pdf so you can't search them, but they aren't. Because someone took time to find the problem with the weather workflow. Let it be your goal to automate and increase the precision of your organizations communication.
Here is a list of what your should do when you open up a text editor or presentation tool:
