Digital transformation is one of the most important aspects of the business development strategy for Gazprom Neft. New generation production management systems are being created in all segments of the Company’s operations. They involve the integrated management of all services to maximize asset value, the use of digital counterparts to optimize operating modes and maintenance plans, and the use of cognitive systems to support decision-making by operators. Projects are implemented at all stages of the value chain, from extracting enterprises to the sale of petroleum products.
At present, the Company’s data processing centres have accumulated huge amounts of information – approximately 6,000 TB. Gazprom Neft is effectively exploring opportunities for the monetization of such information. In particular, individual components of big data technologies have been tested or applied in production to solve business challenges as regards projecting the effectiveness of complex geological and technical measures, clustering wells, and automating the interpretation of seismic research results. For its part, the Efficiency Control Centre was established within the Downstream Division and is responsible for managing the division’s entire value chain.
