UK software specialist AVEVA has updated its monitoring, control and information management portfolio that provides digital visualisation tools for the offshore industry.
The updates include an enhanced cloud offering, which allows customers to access functionality and information across a wide range of applications, such as engineering design data, predictive maintenance and management of operations.
The digital portfolio also makes use of machine learning to predict possible faults or failures in operations, with the potential to take pre-emptive action through augmented reality tools and automated workflows.
AVEVA head of monitoring and control Rashesh Mody said: “Key areas of innovation across AVEVA’s Monitoring, Control, and Information portfolio, that specifically target digital transformation in upstream production focus around the end-to-end integration and visualisation of data flows – from Engineering and Design, Monitoring & Control, Supply Chain Optimisation through Asset Performance Management.
“Democratisation of the data which drives actionable insights and real-time decision making, made available across the entire enterprise, and visualised in a single interface, will deliver the next leap in productivity. AVEVA’s Operations Management Interface (OMI) does exactly this, in a way that reduces engineering time, drives collaboration, and makes the right information available to the right people, on any device, anywhere, at any time.”
UAE state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) uses AVEVA’s Panorama Digital Command Centre to monitor and optimise the performance of its operations and assets across 16 operating companies from its Abu Dhabi headquarters. These operations include oil and gas development and production, as well as the processing and transportation of petroleum and chemical products.
ADNOC CEO Dr Sultan Al Jaber said: “The Panorama Digital Command Centre demonstrates how ADNOC is utilising cutting-edge technology to find new ways to optimise our assets, unlock value and drive efficiencies across the company.
“It provides a single access point to critical operational and performance information, facilitating smarter and faster decision-making and better enabling us to uncover new solutions.”
ADNOC recently awarded three engineering firms contracts to work on different aspects of its digital transformation, in a project worth between $25m and $30m.
