Summary Oilfield operators need tools for automated analytics to leverage the large quantities of data being captured. Solution Seeker combines data processing, machine-learning and visualization into a real-time, automated, and data-driven advisory system for daily production optimization. This is currently being developed as a novel software product called ProductionCompass. ProductionCompass is a web-based solution focusing on availability, low maintenance, user-friendliness and cut-to-the-chase problem solving. The solution is unique and technologically innovative compared to currently available alternatives. It consists of multiple production enhancing applications, such as automatically generated advice on how valves, pumps or pressures can be changed to utilize production system bottlenecks better. There is a need to pilot test ProductionCompass through this DEMO2000 project. The main objective of the project is to successfully conduct a full scale demonstration of ProductionCompass under normal operations, and document the value added compared to conventional methods. This will be achieved by testing three specific applications with varying degrees of complexity. Main activities are development of pilot software, initial pilot testing with close follow-up from Solution Seeker and finally independent user testing.
