Real-time optimization

Automatically determine and maintain your true optimal operating point.

Maximize asset performance by increasing production, minimizing operating costs, and reducing energy consumption.

What is Real-time Optimization?

Optimizing plant operations

Shell Malaysia E&P has conducted on the Integrated Gas Production System in Sarawak, implementing models for real-time monitoring and optimization of wells and facilities on a gas production network spanning more than 100 wells on more than 40 platforms across a number of different Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs).

We highlight how Digital Oil Field (DOF) practices enable field-based data to be turned into information, support decision making, and lead to actions that ensure production is optimized continuously.
