The Digital Oil Field (DOF) has been embraced at the operational level in the exploration and production industry. The DOF has initially been applied to tactical and operational decision making, often with a focus on reducing operational costs. Yet, most DOF value estimates (eg, CERA 2006) have indicated that the majority of the value contribution from the DOF will be through increased revenues, ie, increased reserves or production. An outstanding challenge is to demonstrate how the DOF will enable this revenue-driven value creation.
