We enable the green shift by digitalizing industries, creating a better tomorrow.discover >
During well operations, oil and gas operators collect large amounts of data during the entire project life cycle: from subsurface mapping, to drilling and completions, well intervention and before leaving the well plugging and abandoning the it. Formation evaluation, well integrity, rig instrumentation, downhole mechanical and hydraulics – more and more sensors are continuously collecting measurements.
Like almost every other industry today, the power system is changing. Electrification worldwide is increasing, bringing with it the challenges of stable power supply, increasing energy costs, and long-term sustainability across the energy industry. As we know, digitalization always comes up as a potential solution – but along with it, even more challenges.
The industry has more or less agreed on the broader definition of a digital twin: it’s a virtual replica of facilities that becomes the strategic industrial work surface, complete with contextualized industrial data. For owners/operators overseeing complex asset portfolios, digital twins offer a way to drive digital standardization and scale quickly by unifying data and work processes. Digital twin technology enables everyone in the organization to make the best decision every time.
“I believe Team + Environment + Mindset = Breakthrough Innovation. At KDI we have all three factors; a super talented team, world class workplace environment and a group of like-minded creative people. I am confident that together we will be able to bring breakthrough innovations that will improve people´s lives”
What do we think about when we hear the words ‘digital twin’? There are many definitions out there, but one thing is certain – as digitalization continues to find its footing within the energy industry, it is shifting from a nice-to-have to a must-have. This past month saw two major conferences take place where many priorities were brought into the spotlight, highlighting the work that is still to be done and how digital twin technology will continue to play a fundamental role in the energy transition.
In 2021 Kongsberg Digital (KDI) joined the Open AI Energy Initiative (OAI), an open ecosystem of AI-based solutions launched by C3 AI, Shell, Baker Hughes, and Microsoft to drive scalability in industrial AI and accelerate digital transformation for the energy and process industries. As a leading provider of next-generation software and digital solutions to customers in maritime, oil and gas, and renewables, Kongsberg Digital offers complementary solutions as part of the initiative to help transform the energy industry.
Kongsberg Digital is delighted to move LedaFlow forward on the innovation front as part of the two-year GELECO2 Joint Industry Product with CMG Canada to simulate CO2 injection into reservoirs. Together with CLIMIT, Norway’s national research program for CCS technologies, this initiative is supported and funded by key industry actors.
Data is much easier to come by these days. Sensors and data-recording tools gather information from equipment upstream and downstream, creating vast sets of data that when contextualized can provide a complete picture of your facility assets and their behaviours. With all this data, it can be difficult to get useful insights when operators are exposed to issues such as disconnected data, outdated data, and data stored in different systems. How can Kognitwin, Kongsberg Digital’s leading industrial work surface, help you utilize data for enhanced operations?
Gartner defines digital disruption as ‘an effect that changes the fundamental expectations and behaviours in a culture, market, industry or process that is caused by, or expressed through, digital capabilities, channels or assets.’
“When I turned eighteen, I decided to move from Bulgaria to Norway to pursue my dream. Today, nine years later, at the age of twenty-seven, I am proud to say I was able to build a career in this same industry with a significant focus on customer management, success, and support.”
