About Smart Oilfields
Smart oilfield involves the application of advanced software, hardware, and data analysis techniques to increase the E&P efficiency of oil and gas. In an era of ever-growing energy demand and depletion of “easy oil,” smart oilfields facilitate in maximizing oilfield recovery by reducing downtime. These oilfields increase the ROI and profitability through effective integration of workflows and design, and by reducing production costs. The workflow includes business process management that utilizes advanced information technologies to streamline or even automate various operations performed across different functional teams.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global smart oilfield market to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Smart Oilfield Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global smart oilfield market: Baker Hughes, China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), Halliburton Corporation, Honeywell International, and Schlumberger Ltd.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Accenture, Kongsberg Gruppen, Microseismic, National Oilwell Varco, Paradigm, Pason Systems, Petrolink, Redline Communications Group, Rockwell Automation, Shell, Siemens, and Weatherford.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The demand for oil and gas and the growing number of maturing oilfields have resulted in increased adoption of smart oilfield technology. The advances in smart oilfield technologies will help enhance production rates, redevelop existing oilfield wells, facilitate production from unconventional resources, such as shale formation and tight oil, and improve well management. Intelligent well completion will significantly increase the efficiency, control, and monitoring of wells.”
According to the report, a key market driver is the aggressive remote onshore and deep and ultra-deepwater offshore exploration. The growing global demand for oil and gas and low production output from the world's mature oilfields are making the oil and gas companies aggressively explore remote regions such as deepwater and ultra-deepwater reserves, unconventional shale deposits, and tar sands. These exploration projects are technically complex, capital-intensive, and involve safety hazards.
Further, the report states that resistance to change will be a major challenge to the growth of the smart oilfield market worldwide.
