SemTask - Semantic Task Support in Integrated Operations

SemTask - Semantic Task Support in Integrated Operations

StatoilHydro and other oil companies are introducing Integrated Operations (IO) in the management of their oil and gas assets. According to OLF, IO has an estimated value potential of 300 billion NOK on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. IO includes increased use of real-time data, more collaboration in multidisciplinary teams, and increased automation. With the increased use of real-time data, operators may experience information overload.
This thesis focuses on the ``Daily Production Optimization'' (DPO) work process at StatoilHydro. A structured workflow application, called SemTask, is presented. Its main purpose is to help operators overcome the information overload problem by suggesting which data sources to use in different situations. It supports operators in executing the DPO work process, ensuring that the right tasks are done at the right time.
SemTask uses ontologies in OWL to describe workflows, data sources, and workflow execution states. The workflow ontology is based on the OMG-standard Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). The ontologies form an extendable, flexible model. We propose using rules in Jena, a Semantic Web framework, to implement a workflow execution engine. A prototype that shows that this leads to an elegant solution was created.
The SemTask model, and how it deals with the DPO scenario as well as possible further extensions, is discussed.
SemTask offers an extendable solution for data source suggestions and active help to operators during execution of workflows in Integrated Operations.

Abstract
StatoilHydro and other oil companies are introducing Integrated Operations(IO) in the management of their oil and gas assets. According to OLF,IO has an estimated value potential of 300 billion NOK on the NorwegianContinental Shelf. IO includes increased use of real-time data, morecollaboration in multidisciplinary teams, and increased automation. Withthe increased use of real-time data, operators may experience informationoverload. This thesis focuses on the“Daily Production Optimization”(DPO)work process at StatoilHydro. A structured workflow application, calledSemTask, is presented. Its main purpose is to help operators overcomethe information overload problem by suggesting which data sources touse in different situations. It supports operators in executing the DPOwork process, ensuring that the right tasks are done at the right time.SemTask uses ontologies in OWL to describe workflows, data sources, andworkflow execution states. The workflow ontology is based on the OMG-standard Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). The ontologies forman extendable, flexible model. We propose using rules in Jena, a SemanticWeb framework, to implement a workflow execution engine. A prototypethat shows that this leads to an elegant solution was created. The SemTaskmodel, and how it deals with the DPO scenario as well as possible furtherextensions, is discussed. SemTask offers an extendable solution for datasource suggestions and active help to operators during execution of workflowsin Integrated Operations.
 
Acknowledgements
This master thesis is the result of a collaboration project between theDepartment of Informatics, at the University of Oslo, and StatoilHydro.Many people have helped us to prepare this thesis. First we would like tothank Trond Lilleng (Integrated Operations coordinator at StatoilHydro)who was the initiator of this project, Torhild Rio (Hydro IS Partner)who gave us an initial introduction to APOS, and Espen Halvorsen, ourmain contact person in StatoilHydro. Secondly, we thank Jon HenrikForssell, Magne Valen-Sendstad, and P˚al Rylandsholm from Det NorskeVeritas (DNV), especially for the ISO 15926-workshop, and the PRODML-presentation held by Jan Ingvar Riveland (Tietoenator). We would alsolike to thank Fr´ed´eric Verhelst and B˚ard Henning Tvedt from Epsis for thetwo-day seminar that gave an excellent introduction to oil reservoir andoil production. Kjetil Torvanger (Technical Manager in Cronus AutomationWest) also deserves our acknowledgement for the introduction to the ProcessData Portal. Thanks to the people at the IRC-channels ##logic, #swig,and #jena on Freenode for always giving quick and helpful answers to ourquestions. We appreciate and thank Olaf Owe (professor, UiO/IfI) forthe time he spent answering our questions about Pi calculus and Maude.Fredrik would like to thank Computas for the summer job in 2007 that gavehim a good insight in ontologies and workflow systems for the oil and gasindustry. From Computas we would especially like to thank David Norheimfor answering questions about OWL and Steinar Carlsen for the introductionto BPMN and access to the BPMN 1.1 specification. We would also like tothank Rolf Schwitter at Macquarie University, Sydney for introducing usto the exciting field of Semantic Web. Last we thank our advisors ArildWaaler (professor, UiO/IfI), especially for helping us with issues regardingthe ontologies and establishing the contact with Epsis and DNV, and RoarFjellheim (Computas and professor II, UiO/IfI) for creating the problemdescription, establishing the contact with Hydro, proofreading, and givingus general feedback during the work with this thesis.
