A large amount of data accumulates during the process of any oilfield development, which leads to waste of time and resources for data processing and systematization that precedes the stage of decision-making for optimization of wells work. This leads to the fact that the reservoir engineers most of the time do not spend on field development analysis, but for data preparation for this analysis, which significantly reduces the efficiency of the human resource. This article presents the way of releasing human resources / reservoir engineers from the data processing and systematization with usage of specific software product that automates the process of data preparation from the database. The development of this software product was done in the development environment MS Visual Basic for Application. On a daily basis this software independently makes the request and upload from the database all the latest information about the wells, conducts preliminary processing on the basic algorithms, and prepares the information in a convenient form for analysis to reservoir engineers that without preliminary preparation of the data immediately spend their working time on analysis of field development.

In the future it is also seen the option of automated recommendations making for reservoir engineers for wells management, affecting the change operation modes of wells, wells shifting, etc., which will also lead to additional reduction of human resources of reservoir engineers and improve their efficiency. Presented in this article approach allows to not only reduce right now the quantity of reservoir engineers for analysis of the oilfield development, but also significantly improve the efficiency of their work. The developed program will be included in the platform Era.Grad in order to unify solutions and replication for use in other fields of Gazprom Neft PJSC.
