Difficulty Estimating Volumes and Inventory
DT Midstream operates within a challenging market environment, where uncertainties and delays in gas deals arising from pricing fluctuations are prevalent. DT Midstream occasionally relied on consulting services to analyze and interpret reservoir data, resulting in significant expenses in terms of both time and cost. Moreover, relying on disparate external research and data providers hindered the team’s ability to access consolidated and timely information. Inconsistent or incomplete data further complicated analysis of basin prospects and justifying pipeline investments.
The team’s daily tasks included manual evaluation of inventory and the placement of wells, regardless of project size. As an operator builds out a position, incorporating changes and adjustments into the plan, often leading to extended timelines of weeks and proved to be a laborious and non-scalable process.
Recognizing the need to shorten this evaluation process, DT Midstream considered options including increasing headcount, engaging external consultants for data analysis and exploring bespoke datasets from multiple sources. The latter two options were associated with drawbacks such as outdated, incomplete or inaccurate information. Not finding a solution would also impact the business negatively because making data-informed decisions without the most accurate information could result in missed opportunities
