The scale of KwIDF is huge. Four different fields in Kuwait, four KOC digital field pilot projects - all advance at the same time! KOC is working with four partners, to develop the integrated digital solutions for four different sets of challenges. The combination of state-of-the-art technology and a collaborative work environment is at the heart of each of the KwIDF pilot projects. In the oil and gas industry there has never been anything like it!

Here and now: KwIDF GC1 in South East Kuwait

One of KOC’s Kuwait Integrated Digital Field (KwIDF) Projects is located in the Burgan Field. It is better known as KwIDF GC1 Project. Kuwait’s Burgan Field is KOC`s oldest and biggest producing oil field since 1938.
KwIDF GC1 is all about the latest technology, innovative processes and the KOC people, who are already benefiting from, and contributing to, a uniquely enabling environment.
Some of the benefits GC1 Project is delivering are:
·         Faster and better decision making through the availability of accurate data;
·         Proactive production planning via real-time data monitoring and forecasting;
·         Streamlining of current operations through use of latest technology;
·         Clearly defined processes and people interactions;
·         Increased operational efficiency leading to sustainable production at a reduced financial cost;
Mr Dawood Al-Matar, Team Leader, Field Development South Kuwait, said:
“When looking at KwIDF we have to consider two aspects: optimization (technology-led) and collaboration (people-led). KwIDF project is advancing our company towards a fully integrated, intelligent Digital Oil Field. As a result, we are getting significant opportunities to improve our decision-making process and to define more effective and efficient ways to manage oil production.
However the emphasis has to be on the people who are going to make this happen. We have gone through an extensive selection process to identify highly skilled and knowledgeable, professional team members who will be working together in collaborative environment towards the common goal. Technology matters but it’s the people who are going to make the difference!
