In order to enhance performance of existing applications, Shell and SAP plan to collaborate to create the next-generation toolkit for well and reservoir reviews.

“Customers such as Shell can capitalise on the opportunities that have been opened up through SAP HANA,” said Steve Lucas, president, Platform Solutions, SAP. “By co-innovating with customers, we are seeing the direct impact SAP HANA has on customer landscapes.”

The envisioned solution will deliver tools and best practice, empowering users to build a professional understanding of their assets and identifying opportunities in the operate phase.

This aims to result in an increased early production and improved optimisation of resources.

The planned WRFM solution will integrate information from over 20 data sources in SAP HANA. SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio is planned to be used to build an intuitive, HTML5-based front-end with asset hierarchy and geospatial navigation, dynamic report sets and enhanced charting features.

Shell recognises the value of implementing SAP HANA as a single in-memory computing platform, which can help accelerate analytics, business processes and sentiment data processing.

The WRFM project is the first step toward a renovated smart solutions platform in Shell and an excellent example for leveraging the SAP HANA platform capabilities in a non-traditional SAP domain.
