Let’s build a smarter planet: Oil and GasThe need for progress is clear 1 terabyte 33% 90,000 An oil field can Amount of oil, on Man-hours required to generate one terabyte, average, that is execute turnaround or 200 DVDs’ worth, of recovered from an effort every two data daily.

  4. 4. Let’s build a smarter planet: Oil and GasFor oil and gas organizations, this means finding a way to lead in anew environment shaped by three key factors.ENERGY AVAILABILITY TO MEET THE WORLD’S GROWING NEEDSProjections show energy consumption increasing by 50% by 2030.1 Yet a great deal is stillunknown about the world’s oil and natural gas supplies: where to find it, how much is in whichreservoirs, how to extract more of it and even how best to distribute it once it is pumped out ofthe ground or ocean.ENERGY AFFORDABILITY—PRICE, VOLATILITY—OF DIRECT AND INDIRECT GOODSTO CONSUMERSHit-or-miss exploration methods and an unreliable supply can and do impact the price of oil andgas. Given the enormous price tag of drilling a new well—which can cost over $100 million—and the complexity of managing production facilities, even modest increases in oil explorationand production efficiency can tremendously improve energy affordability.ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTFailure to implement new technologies and capabilities that minimize drilling footprint orimprove the safety and reliability of operations can lead to increased environmental risk due tounnecessary drilling and oil production accidents (explosions, spills, etc.). © 2009 IBM Corporation

  13. 13. Let’s build a smarter planet: Oil and Gas We’ve only just begun to uncover what is possible on a smarter planet.  The world will continue to become smaller, flatter and smarter. We are moving into the age of the globally integrated and intelligent economy, society and planet.  There’s no better time to start building smarter petroleum organizations—focused on providing energy affordably and safely. And there’s no better time to invest in creating the kind of society we all desire. Let’s work together to drive real progress in our world. © 2009 IBM Corporation
