Managing the administration of a well’s life cycle (WLC), from inception to abandonment, is a complex process. There are many well life cycle administration challenges including, but not limited to, communication with external organizations, processing continuous requests (i.e. requests to license and requests to construct), and revenue and billing data management. Having a central, cloud-based well file management system can alleviate headaches for well life cycle administration by allowing all the WLC sectors’ documents to be managed under one system. Exploration and production companies have a variety of specialized tools to support business, but they don’t have tools that bring their worlds together. Let’s explore how uniting tools through a secure, centralized cloud filing management solution is a necessity when managing a well through its lifecycle.
