Digitisation and Its Implications for Oil and Gas: Myths and Possible Reality

Digitisation and Its Implications for Oil and Gas: Myths and Possible Reality

The fashion for digitisation is spreading across the Russian economy at incredible speed. Indeed, it is becoming the main economic idea of the government, a sort “magic wand” that can be used to ensure stable economic growth – and on a new technological basis too. The oil and gas sector is not an exception.

All leading companies constantly speak about their digitisation successes. At the same time, digitisation unfortunately spreads in manner quite typical of Russia.

The government demands that everyone get digitised – and everyone shouts “yes, sir!”, often without understanding what the term implies after all. Worse still, the government itself does not fully realise this. For even the purchase of a new computer may well be interpreted as digitisation in the broad sense of the word. Therefore, reports on digitisation are coming in from everywhere, but there is no general understanding of what the actual meaning of the concept is.

In our report we will attempt to explain what different Russian oil and gas companies really mean when they say “digitisation”; what corporate digitisation programmes can be reduced to indeed; and what actual progress has been made in this area.

In the new report you will find the following subjects:

  • State regulation of digitisation in the oil and gas sector

    • Deputy ministers in charge of digitisation in the government ministries concerned
    • The story of the state information system for the fuel and energy sector as an example of government-run digitisation in the industry
  • Digitisation through the eyes of Russian oil and gas companies

    • Corporate digitisation programmes: plans and actual implementation
    • Actual changes in exploration, processing, fuel logistics and sales, and production control systems broken down by the biggest vertically integrated oil companies
  • Development of smart well and digital field technologies: global experience and Russia

    • The road from the use of isolated digital technologies to fields with elements of artificial intelligence where oil and gas production can become unmanned
  • The problem of using foreign software for the Russian oil and gas industry

    • Forced digitisation in the segment of software products for oil and gas production: the first results
  • Medium-term forecast for developments
