Rosneft launched the information system Digital Field in trial operation. This project, implemented based on the Bashneft Ilishevskoye field, for the first time in the industry covers all basic processes of oil production and logistics.
The implementation of digital technologies on the Ilishevskoye field of Bashneft will allow achieving significant growth of production indicators and economic effect, Rosneft’s corporate web page reports.The quantity of remotely-controlled objects will increase almost by 60%, the energy efficiency of processes of production will increase by 5%, and logistic costs will decrease by 5%.
The experience gained in the course of the pilot project implemented at the Ilishevskoye field will be in demand at all Rosneft fields. Due to scaling of technologies within Bashneft the company expects to receive in addition about 1 mln tons of oil due to optimization of production. The economic effect will be about RUR 1 bln per year.
“We have received very optimistic results, which indicate that the introduction of digital technologies is one of the priorities for the industry development. We are creating an integrated chain of a new type, which includes a “digital field”, “digital plant”, and “digital gas station”. With regard to producing assets, in the near future, the lack of digital solutions will be a major shortcoming in competitive practices. Fields will not be able to work effectively without coordination. And such coordination is provided by the Centre for Integrated Operations, the brain of a digital enterprise,” said the chairman of the board of Bashneft, Andrei Shishkin.
