DATA ANALYTICS TO INVESTIGATE FACILITY DOWNTIME
Justin Hayes, Staff Reservoir Engineer; Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
Downtime on a mid-life facility producing at peak rates can be difficult to diagnose. Complex, interdependent systems operating at
rates higher than most of the facility’s life can generate a convoluted scope of potential problems.
Justin Hayes is a Staff Reservoir Engineer at Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. He has served in various production and reservoir
engineering roles in Deepwater GOM and Onshore US. Hayes currently works in Anadarko’s Advanced Analytics and Emerging
Technologies group. He has been with Anadarko for 9 years and has presented at Deepwater Operations before about the startup
of Caesar-Tonga. Hayes holds a B.S. in Petroleum Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines and an MBA from Rice University.
INTEGRATED INTELLIGENT OPERATIONS FOR SAFER, MORE COST EFFECTIVE OFFSHORE FACILITIES
William David Hartell, Senior Development Manager; Premier Oil
This presentation will discuss the use of Integrated Intelligent Operations (IIO) for offshore facilities to apply inherently safer design
by not having personnel in hydrocarbon areas unless it is for specific pre-planned tasks. An IIO allows moving away from previous
operational norms to make facilities safer and more efficient. It is about maximization of intelligent input and minimization of resources.
The philosophy behind IIO is predicting and preventing failures/losses before they happen to maximize plant availability and achieve
a greater level of safety. It enables the appropriate expertise to be applied to a problem without having to put an operator on the spot
at the time. Remote diagnostics on all critical systems adds to the ability to conference technical issues with appropriate expertise, to
ensure that any decision made is of the highest quality, worked in a collaborative manner, has a high probability of being correct first
time, and minimizes use of resources and OPEX costs. The IIO plan should use available technology for the greatest gain in operational
and organizational efficiency to maximize availability and reliability. Real time continuous monitoring of equipment performance and
conditions with continuous monitoring of integrity gathers valuable information to make operational and maintenance decisions. Also,
improved decision making using risk based decision processes supported by IIO helps avoid surprises in facility performance.
William David Hartell has extensive onshore and offshore oil and gas development experience including facilities engineering,
construction, installation, project management, and production operations. His development experience ranged from onshore remote
locations to offshore deepwater locations. Hartell has many years of international experience working with national energy companies,
energy ministries, and governmental regulators. He has been responsible for managing subsurface asset, drilling and completion, and
production operations teams. Hartell has presented papers at conferences in Brazil, UK, US, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea, and Australia.
He received his Bachelor of Science and Master’s in Civil Engineering degrees from Rice University in Houston, Texas; and is a member
of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
