Upstream
Achieve shorter time to first revenue, increased operational integrity and reduced CAPEX and OPEX through a comprehensive suite of industry-tailored solutions that applied rigorous models, advanced control, and analytics to upstream.

Discover how upstream solutions can:

  • Improve reliability from the wellhead to transport
  • Increase capacity with minimum CAPEX
  • Greatly reduce time to first oil

We are working with leading upstream players worldwide to:

Shrink Time to Revenue

Cut the time to first hydrocarbons by two to three times and reduce asset development CAPEX by 50% with an asset lifecycle approach and standardized designs that drastically reduce time, cost and risk.

Improve Asset Reliability

Increase upstream production through better reliability to improve uptime by 1 to 5 percentage points with low-touch machine learning, enterprise risk assessment and rigorous online model technology.  Asset rigorous models assist upstream technologists to solve challenges such as flow assurance, corrosion and gathering system bottlenecks.

Achieve Operational Excellence

Reduce both OPEX and CAPEX through digital transformation in the oilfield. Visualization tools remove people from remote and dangerous locations, and optimize across multiple dimensions to maximize production.
