Noah Consulting to Speak at Mid-Continent Digital Oilfield Conference


Noah Consulting SME, Jim Crompton, is scheduled to speak about the “Unconventional Digital Oilfield” at the Mid-Continent Digital Oilfield Conference (MCDOC) Wednesday, February 18, 2015, from 10:45 – 11:15 a.m. in Tulsa, OK.

The MCDOC is a conference that focuses on how digital technologies improve and change the oilfield business.

Jim will discuss how the oil and gas industry is equipped and positioned to take advantage of the vast amount of data from its operations. Thousands of sensors at the wellhead, millions of parts in the supply chain, global capital projects, and many highly trained personnel create a data-rich environment. The challenge is creating, managing, linking, and automating changes in these core data environments so they can be repurposed to support strategic initiatives and daily operations. Data management success in the unconventional world hinges on four components, governance, integration, business process management, and analytics. In this presentation, Jim will share best practices for accurately collecting information and making it available for analytical use, which is the basis for optimization.
