Crude oil and natural gas extraction companies around the world are investing heavily in digital oilfield technology to enhance crude oil and natural gas production. Digital oil fields integrate advanced software, hardware, and data analysis techniques to collect real-time data from the oilfield. They consist of visualization, product surveillance, integrated decision making, and remote communication systems. Digital technologies in oil fields include high-performance drill bits, advanced electrical submersible pumps, and 3D seismic imaging and reservoir modelling. Oilfields digitization facilitates efficient utilization of human resources and thus optimizes the profitability of oil production. This technology is changing the competitive landscape as an increase in production efficiency by 10% can yield an impact of $220 million to $260 million from oilfields in which oil accumulation has reached its saturation level. According to IHS CERA, digital oilfield implementation leads to increase in oil production by 2 to 8% and reduction in operating expense by 5 to 25%.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, the crude oil and natural gas industry is adopting EOR techniques to improve oil recovery factor, which was previously low at approximately 40% of may fields. Enhanced oil recovery is a tertiary method of recovery used to increase the amount of oil recovered from a particular deposit. Three main types of EOR include thermal recovery, gas injection, and chemical injection. Thermal recovery involves injection of steam to lower the viscosity of oil; gas injection uses natural gas, nitrogen or CO2; whereas chemical injection involves use of polymers. The application for CO2-EOR is gaining popularity because of the potential for sequestering CO2 while improving recovery of hydrocarbons. For instance, according to US department of energy, utilizing EOR methods can increase production from a well to up to 75% recovery.
