Abstract

The paper introduces the digital transformation model of Bien Dong Petroleum Operating Company (Bien Dong POC), a pioneer in building vision, goals, and digital transformation strategy. The topic focuses on creating and exploiting digital resources, explicitly building a "Digital Centralised Platform (DCP)" through collecting and standardising data in real-time, centralising and applying data science to improve the efficiency of management and exploitation of Hai Thach - Moc Tinh gas-condensate fields, Blocks 05-2 and 05-3.
A digital transformation programme is the first and most crucial step for every business in the current trend, creating a premise for developing data science and advanced analytics. During the implementation process at Bien Dong POC, the digital transformation models and the methods of measuring efficiency of major projects in the world have been consulted. The authors also make recommendations based on lessons learnt from Bien Dong POC's digital transformation process that other petroleum operating companies in Vietnam can use for reference.
