CCO of Aise Anders Brun said: “The collaboration with bp has been invaluable in getting customer and user insight to develop a product that enables experts to do their jobs even better. It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to extend this collaboration with one of the leading operators globally.”

Aize’s digital twin software allows BP to create and augment processes that supporting maintenance, inspection, modifications, and turnarounds. According to the press release, BP use the software to boost operational safety and efficiency.

By generating a virtual model of a physical object, digital twins allow companies to replicate real processes and collect data to more accurately predict how they will perform. BP has been using the software on its assets in the North Sea for several years to predict asset performance and maximise productivity.

Jason Brown, Aize senior vice president and manager strategic accounts, said: “Our work with bp is helping us develop our product every day. We are now onboarding bp end-users continuously, which means increasing our knowledge base by the minute.”

The North Sea remains an important region for BP, the UK-based company claims to have “a strong portfolio” focused around the ETAP and Andrew hubs in the central North Sea and the Clair, Schiehallion and Foinaven areas west of Shetland.
