What will be the value of your organisation’s annual production losses?
Where will your efforts/OPEX best be targeted in increasing production efficiency?
GCMe will help you answer these questions and support your people in the drive to continually Improve Performance…
Where GCMe Fits In
GCMe Supports These Processes
How do we go about this?
Although the above systems will help provide valuable input to GCMe, GCMe does not aim to emulate these tools.
GCMeExample: Set Targets (Production Capacity)
GCMe Facilitates Monthly Production Capacity Review
Demonstrates “Chokes” across the whole operation (Reservoir to Market)
The Team decide upon a realistic but challenging Production Capacity figure which becomes the new 100% efficiency target
Discipline Experts/Teams (Reservoir, Wells, Process etc.)
Review/update their own data with their own expert systems in their own time
Synchronise key information with GCMe prior to Production Capacity review
After reviewing the capacities chart and recent production performance, The Production Capacity decision is made
The Data that drives this chart is synchronized from a separate specialist Wells System
In this example the opportunities associated with individual wells and the Wells group are also displayed demonstrating that an increase in Wells group capacity is possible
As the wells operate “in parallel”, their capacities “stack up” to create the combined Wells capacity
Capacities of component parts are automatically rolled up to Alpha Platform Production Capacity decision levelExample: Set Targets (Production Capacity)
As these component parts are “in series”, the lowest capacity (Wells) restricts the overall capacity for Alpha Platform
First select a position within the Asset/System/Equipment Hierarchy
Drill down to see where the wells data has come from...
Lose Less performance, The Production Capacity decision is made
Offshore performance, The Production Capacity decision is made
Example: Lose Less1. Historic Losses
End of Production Day
Brief team meeting in the control room (10-15mins)
Bring up GCMe and Allocate production losses for that day
Volume to allocate = Production Capacity – Actual Daily Production
For each loss event, capture indicative loss volume, source, cause, a brief description and any immediate action taken
Daily meeting/hook up with onshore
Bring up GCMe and review/edit previous day’s losses together
Get after root causes, assign actions to Eliminate Defects
Weekly/Monthly/Quarterly Performance Review
Bring up GCMe and use the reporting functions to analyse losses over a longer time period
Study the trends & see the value of lost production by Source/Cause/Owner etc
Assign actions to Eliminate Defects, review action progress
Production Capacity figures pulled through from internal decisions
Losses to be allocated
If this loss is likely to carry on into the following production day then flag as a “Continuing Loss”
Losses already entered. The highlighted loss has been inserted automatically as it was previously flagged as a “continuing loss”.
If this loss is likely to re-occur at some point in the future then it can be captured as a “Potential Loss”
Click here to add a new lossInside GCMe : Historic Losses
Losses that have occurred previously or have already been captured as “potential losses” are listed automatically – and can be used to populate the loss event form
If not resolved, through time, Potential Loss events move from left to right – eventually becoming urgent
GCMeExample: Lose Less2. Potential Losses
The purpose of this process is to try to prevent future unplanned losses occurring!
An estimate of timing and impact is recorded as part of a Potential Loss which drives the GCMe Potential Loss risk matrix.
Taking a more proactive HSE style approach rather than just reacting to events after they have happened…
This is achieved by capturing:
Capturing, Reviewing, Analysing and taking Action on Potential Losses is done at the same time/meetings as the Eliminate Historical Loss process.
Unlock Potential from left to right – eventually becoming urgent
Colour coding identifies the opportunity status from left to right – eventually becoming urgent
In this example the opportunities associated with individual wells and the “Wells” group, stack up to provide a significant potential increase in Production Capacity (at this level).
In this example, the component parts are “in series” and overall growth opportunity is limited by the lowest component parts
Example: Unlock Potential
Growth Opportunities are rolled up to any level in the hierarchy, along with capacities.
At this level, it is clear that there is value in pursuing the Wells, Nominations & Local Plant related opportunities – but little value in pursuing the others at this time.
The Building Blocks of Production diagram details the rolled up opportunities for Alpha including the Theoretical Production Capacity (TPC) and the Production Technical Limit (PTL)
