The way in which a developing field in the Oil and Gas industry is planned with differ from project to project. When considering the area, the presence of assets for tie-ins, the possibility of future development, and many more factors - honestly, so many more factors - our teams must choose the approach to development that best supports these circumstances. There are multiple methods for planning the optimal locations of Pipeline Gathering Systems, Well Pad Sites, and Access Roads in a field.

Of all of the IT disciplines, storage has been the most neglected and unappreciated. Think about it - How often do you actually perform clean up the data stored on your own machine outside of those pesky times you need more space to run an analysis with ArcGIS or find room to store those latest files?

Dig deep in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post and get ideas for ways to review the way you approach this task, coming into the new year organized in all things data management.
Looking forward to the coming months, let's explore what the supermajors in the Oil and Gas industry have on their agendas - goals like increasing sustainability through investing in new and brighter technology, embracing all things digital, and more.
