LONDON — AVEVA is supporting Azule Energy, the joint venture between bp and Eni in Angola, with digital initiatives.
The main goals are to cut costs, improve safety and open new production opportunities using AVEVA’s cloud, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and digital twin technologies.
Other aims are to reduce time spent searching for asset information, improve maintenance planning, lessen offshore trips and visits, strengthen team collaboration, and facilitate remote operations.
In the first phase of the program, AVEVA will implement AVEVA Asset Information Management, AVEVA Information Standards Manager, and Assai Cloud for Operations for the FPSOs in offshore blocks 18 and 31 serving the Greater Plutonio and PSVM developments.
AVEVA CEO Caspar Herzberg said, “The vessels are located a long distance offshore, which represents a significant challenge to operations. Using data-led insights, Azule’s team will be able to break down silos and deepen collaboration between onshore and FPSO teams, using their combined insight to streamline processes and accelerate delivery.”
The company claims its digital twin technology is the sole service covering the entire asset life cycle. It is said to be scalable, integrated and open.
