    This IBM® Redpaper™ publication is one in a series of service-oriented architecture (SOA) papers that feature a case study that involves a fictitious company called JKHL Enterprises (JKHLE). In this paper, we focus on the chemical and petroleum division of JKHLE titled JKHL Oil and Gas.

    This paper shows how by automating workflows for well testing and well performance monitoring processes, and optimizing the use of existing upstream assets associated with oil production, JKHL Oil and Gas are able to reduce lost production and increase the effective amount of barrels of oil produced each year.
