Hess in the Media: The New Oil

With an acreage position that spans an area the size of New England, Hess’ Bakken operations are expansive. As North Dakota’s second largest producer, keeping production flowing for the company is critical. The company leveraged digital technologies to drive reliability, productivity and efficiency safely. Through its use of exception-based surveillance (EBS), actual issues affecting well operations in the field are identified. The company has spent the last few years developing this type of system to identify its sick wells from the healthy ones.

“Traditional oil and gas production surveillance was service technicians driving around and checking wells that made squeaks and leaks and looking for wells where the pumps were not going up and down,” said Mike Turner, senior vice president of production for Hess. “You’re in a place with 1,600 wells, 600 pads and facilities spread out over a space the size of New England with more wells being added. Driving around and checking is not a good kind of health care plan.”
