Caspian Oil & Gas data harnessed

Eigen engineers have deployed IT infrastructure, networks, systems and specialist applications for Oil & Gas operators in the Caspian since 2003. Since then, they have been supporting advanced operational technology systems in the region with numerous upgrades and systems and data migration projects, amidst a period of substantial technological change

As a key element of this delivery, Eigen has supported a large Aspentech installed base of six IP.21 historians, which have been customised to support the digital oil field applications in use since 2006.

A two pronged approach

Gareth Davies, Eigen, UK, discusses different process methods for achieving digitisation.

Several technologies have accelerated offshore productivity and performance in recent times and these have declined substantially in cost. With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), remote sensing, data combination and dissemination, cloud computing, industrial internet, block-chain, analytics and artificial intelligence, the foundations of the 4th Industrial Revolution are firmly in place for the oil and gas sector.

Wearable technology keeps offshore workers informed

In collaboration with oil and gas company Lundin Norway, software provider Eigen has designed an app which pairs with wearable devices to provide oil and gas offshore workers with real-time information.

Using the tool, offshore ‘digital’ workers are given instant access to operational data through the app itself or a headset with a visor interface. Information about industrial equipment can be accessed either through image processing or by manually entering search terms, offering data on past or planned maintenance, recently generated alarms, live performance data and documentation.

A day in the life of Digital Chris

Digital Chris is a very valuable person. He’s what’s referred to as a “Barrel Chaser” he’s the trouble shooter, the ideas man, the guy that gets things done.

A friend of mine runs operations for one of the larger players in the North Sea. He has a chap who works for him, and for the purposes of anonymity, I’ll call him Digital Chris.

Digital Chris is a very valuable person. He’s what’s referred to as a “Barrel Chaser” he’s the trouble shooter, the ideas man, the guy that gets things done. Digital Chris adds thousands of barrels of production each year. Production that would otherwise be locked up due to process constraints, lost through shut-in’s and trips or lost through delays getting things back on-line. Digital Chris probably contributes a few million pounds of cash that drops straight to the bottom line.

New Tech to Help Offshore Oil & Gas Workers

New wearables and App technology to provide real-time information access for offshore oil and gas platform managers and operatives.

Eigen, an offshore oil and gas digitalisation software provider and systems integrator, working in partnership with Lundin Norway has created a new app that enables real-time access to critical data via wearable devices. This instant and easy access to operational information can be granted to digital workers by using either an app or headset with a visor interface.

Using sophisticated image processing technology or by entering search terms, users can access information and use the system to automatically identify and display information related to equipment including: • Documentation • Live performance data • Equipment parameters such as manufacturer or current space part inventory • Maintenance history and future plans • Any alerts or alarms that have been granted recently

Digitalisation approaches – An oil & gas industry blueprint

How can operators capture greater value through making better digital decisions?

Much has been written about Digitalisation recently but it’s often less clear that different approaches are needed depending on the nature of the business goal.

There are essentially two main types of digitalisation - those focused on using data to make co-ordination decisions to sanction and control work (referred to as Digital Decisions), and those that embed information processing so the way work is performed changes (referred to as Digital Execution).

Digitalisation in oil & gas – The upstream response to Industry 4.0

The past decade has seen several Oil & Gas operator technologies advancing quickly in performance and declining rapidly in price.

Since the turn of this century, productivity growth has become an increasingly prominent government priority. The past decade has seen several Oil & Gas operator technologies advancing quickly in performance and declining rapidly in price, and they are believed to hold the key to enhancing industrial productivity in the sector. These include IoT, remote sensing, data combination and dissemination, cloud computing, autonomous vehicles, industrial internet, additive manufacture, block-chain, analytics and artificial intelligence. Together they form the foundations of what is commonly referred to as the 4th Industrial Revolution.

In line with this revolution, 2017 has seen huge investments into digitalisation in the industry. Statoil unveiled its 1Bln Kroner digitalisation initiative, BP invested $20m in an AI company called Beyond Limits and GE forecast that their digitalisation platform will be part of a $6Bln revenue stream by 2020.
