With Daleel's production requirements continuing to rise, the exploration, development and production of new oil and gas resources are shifting to increasingly challenging sites. Meanwhile, regulations continue to tighten worldwide, and finding and keeping experienced personnel is getting harder. Forecasting and budgeting are exceedingly difficult in the face of ongoing pricing volatility and the many other uncertainties of a dynamic environment in and out of the field.

In response, Daleel has turned to a variety of innovative, upstream petroleum technologies. However these technologies alone are not enough to meet the full set of demands confronting today's industry. In late 2014, Daleel decided to view operational data as a resource. Automation & RTO was created as a new division within the production department to promote the idea of “Smart Daleel" which mainly look after providing required intelligence to asset team so they take the right decisions.
