Kongsberg Digital and Shell signed an agreement on digitalization partnership


Kongsberg Digital and Shell signed an agreement on digitalization partnership

Kongsberg Digital, a subsidiary of Kongsberg, signs an agreement to digitalize the Nyhamna facility, a gas processing and export hub for Ormen Lange and other fields connected to the Polarled pipeline, Kongsberg’s press office reports.

A/S Norske Shell is entering the partnership as the operator of Ormen Lange and on behalf of Gassco as the operator of Nyhamna. The value of the contract scope, with a fully realized dynamic digital twin, is approximately 100 MNOK — with agile and iterative deliverables starting from Q4 2019.

Kongsberg will utilize Kognifai Dynamic Digital Twin to establish a dynamic virtual representation of the gas plant and its behavior — continuously updated with integrated information reflecting the status of the facility in real time. As Technical Service Provider at Nyhamna, Shell will be equipped with the ability to simulate scenarios and uncover new options for optimization of its real-life counterpart.

Kongsberg is a Digital Twin Partner for Go Digital Oil & Gas Middle East

Kognifai Dynamic Digital Twin is an integrated digital solutions tool for oil and gas facilities. It is used to optimize and reduce the time and cost of commissioning, operating, planning, and designing assets and improves performance through data-driven operations.

We are proud to partner with Shell and support its strategy as a leading international energy company. Our dynamic digital twin technology is cutting edge and will be the foundation for significant transformation within the energy industry in the years to come, through supporting smarter and more efficient ways of designing, engineering, and operating assets

Geir Håøy, CEO, Kongsberg

Business benefits of digital twin technology for the oil & gas industry include a real-time view of a facility, its processes, and production. Physical models and machine learning algorithms provide virtual sensors and insight into the non-instrumented part of a facility and can be leveraged to spin up and manage model instances to perform What-If analysis, scenario analysis and to uncover the best options for optimization.

Kongsberg Digital is a provider of next-generation software and digital solutions to customers within maritime, oil and gas, and renewables and utilities.

Large process facility in Aukra municipality in Møre and Romsdal is in operations since 2007. After a significant upgrade, the plant can process gas from other fields in the Norwegian Sea connected to the Polarled pipeline. Now a hub for gas processing, Nyhamna exports gas to the UK and continental Europe through the Langeled pipeline.
