Build your energy production workforce

Posted by Amy Thibault on Apr 19, 2022 10:45:00 AM

 

 

The Great Resignation is far too real for most production companies to keep up with—in the past couple of years many workers are leaving old jobs to find opportunities that are better aligned to their professional and personal values and goals that usually also come with bigger paychecks, more benefits and even larger promises of bright days ahead.

Some people have left the oil and gas production industry all together to take a new path that isn't as volatile or have joined organizations that don't trigger extended family meltdowns at holiday dinners because select narratives don't support oil and gas production.

These are the same types of pressures on people as they start their career that usually pushes them away from the energy sector all together into something 'safer' or what they have been told is more socially acceptable also add to the workforce shortage.

Getting cloud on time and on budget with Project Management services

Posted by Amy Thibault on Apr 5, 2022 11:15:00 AM

 

 

Digital transformation projects usually require many complex steps. Each of these steps requires a well thought out, budgeted, and highly detailed plan. Who provides that plan will be your companies key to successfully reaching that desired destination for your operations on your time-frame and your budget requirements.

Many companies undervalue the importance of project management as a crucial component for project success. Instead the project(s) become everyone's baby; not one person. Strong leaders prefer to have one person accountable and responsible for the project as a whole; or as some leaders like to say 'one throat to choke' (I write that with a smile on my face and all due respect). This way everyone knows the exact time line, expectations and one person is in charge of the budget so it doesn't run wild.

Best of both ESG and efficiency goals

Posted by Amy Thibault on Feb 10, 2022 11:12:00 AM

 

 

As more and more E&Ps look to digitally transform their operations for efficiency and profitability, it may be surprising to learn that the digital oilfield can also help the environment, employee satisfaction and retention rates. In other words, going digital can help you make significant gains in your ESG strategy.

Having abundant data from monitoring systems is great, and it’s even greater when that data is clear, useful and readily available to authorized users anywhere they may be, and at anytime. It makes your people feel—and be—more productive, able to concentrate on finding and producing oil and gas instead of calling around to see who has the latest production report on their laptop, digging through stacks of paper to find a missing truck haul ticket or wasting time and money to drive to a remotely located site just to 'check on things'.

Tomorrow matters today

Posted by Amy Thibault on Dec 2, 2020 6:45:00 AM

If the year 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that technology is no longer the wave of the future; it's right now. It’s all around us, and the oil and gas industry is in the middle of it.

Most oil and gas producers have known that implementation of automation, with remote monitoring and control, and accurate, analyzed data would be more efficient leading to reduced downtime and boosting profitability. But 2020 showed us that having employees work remotely was not only possible, it was necessary.

The growing importance of technology for the immediacy of control and actionable data is changing the workforce. It’s prioritizing those who can deliver usable data for faster, better oil and gas production decisions.

What machine learning really means

Posted by Community Contributor on Aug 13, 2020 10:15:00 AM

The first patent for Amazon Alexa was filed in 2012. Since then, there has been an incredible growth of skills to Amazon's voice assistant, and the credit for this growth goes to machine learning. Many of these skills include asking Alexa to tell you about your schedule, to play music, or update you on the daily weather.

We've also been using machine learning (or ML as some people reference it) for years.
