Frequently Asked Questions

Provided below is an FAQ to help you understand our services in more detail. If your question is not covered please feel free contact us.

Bespoke software refers to custom-made software designed to cater to specific business needs, in this case, Oil & Gas upstream operations. This involves exploration, drilling, extraction, and production activities. Bespoke software in this industry is critical for optimising processes such as Digital Twin modelling, Data Acquisition Systems, and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) operations. It aids in areas like production optimisation, flow assurance, well integrity, and provides detailed 2D & 3D visualisation for accurate representation and analysis.

Production optimisation refers to the maximisation of hydrocarbon extraction efficiency. Bespoke software allows for detailed data acquisition and real-time monitoring of oil & gas production processes. This data can be integrated with predictive algorithms and digital twin models to provide actionable insights. These insights can help in reducing downtime, preventing bottlenecks, and optimising overall production, ensuring the process runs smoothly and efficiently.

SCADA, a crucial component of the digital oilfield, plays an essential role in upstream oil & gas operations. Bespoke software often integrates SCADA systems for real-time data acquisition and process control. This integration enables operators to remotely monitor and control equipment, thereby reducing operational costs and improving safety standards.

Well integrity management is crucial in upstream operations, and bespoke software can significantly aid this process. By utilising comprehensive data acquisition systems, the software provides critical insights into potential risks, such as casing failures or leaks. It facilitates preventive actions, ensuring the well’s integrity, and subsequently, the safety of operations and the environment.

Flow assurance refers to ensuring a consistent and efficient flow of hydrocarbon from the reservoir to the point of sale. Bespoke software helps in this regard by providing tools for continuous monitoring and control of all factors affecting flow assurance, such as temperature, pressure, and the presence of hydrates or asphaltenates. Through data analysis and prediction capabilities, it helps prevent flow assurance issues before they arise.

A digital twin is a virtual representation of a physical asset or system, in this case, an oil & gas facility. Bespoke software enhances digital twin technology by providing accurate real-time data, leading to better decision-making and predictive maintenance. It allows for detailed 2D & 3D visualisation, which aids in thorough analysis and understanding of the physical system.

Bespoke software can integrate 2D and 3D visualisation tools that can bring digital twins and data models to life. This allows for spatial understanding, easy interpretation of complex data, and accurate visualisation of various processes in the upstream oil & gas operations. Please see our QuickWells case study for an example.

Yes, bespoke software is designed to seamlessly integrate with existing data acquisition systems. It can capture, organise, and interpret vast amounts of data, allowing for insightful analysis and proactive decision making in upstream operations.

Bespoke software is a key element in the digital oilfield concept, providing comprehensive data acquisition, visualisation, predictive analysis, and control tools. It aids in real-time monitoring and optimising of the entire operations process, ultimately enhancing production efficiency and safety.

Implementing bespoke software in upstream oil & gas operations offers numerous benefits. It enhances production optimisation, improves well integrity management, assists in flow assurance, and facilitates digital twin modelling. It allows for real-time data acquisition and control of operations, thereby reducing operational costs and risks. By incorporating detailed 2D & 3D visualisation, it also provides a clear understanding of the operational process, assisting in accurate decision-making and future planning. With a tailored software solution from companies like Software Development UK, oil & gas operators can streamline their processes to meet specific operational goals and industry standards.
