LONDON – Wintershall Dea has selected Eigen to pilot a digitalization implementation for the Brage field digital twin project in the Norwegian North Sea.

Eigen’s Ingenuity service, deployed in a cloud environment using the latest DevOps tools, is generating a visualization and integration platform for real-time operational data at Brage.

This is in addition to Wintershall Dea’s existing systems and should provide the company with new digital capabilities and eliminate time spent understanding operational status, Eigen said.

The fully cloud-based system allows engineers to focus on priority workflows and tasks, and the tool kit can also be used as a smart alarm system and to help individuals find information more quickly, understand it better in context, take appropriate decisions and initiate action.

The pilot is said to be providing new intuitive capabilities alongside support and user training.

Functionality includes: Search across systems; user configurable visualization and calculations; simple drag and drop UI; event detection and alerting; semantic model giving fast access to related information from other systems; mobile apps; automated data capture for meetings and reports; digital working environment; publishing to common displays; and real-time risk visualization.

Murray Callander, Eigen’s CEO, said: “As a tool for engineers and built by engineers, it’s an intuitive way of working that fulfils a specialist role for using real-time data that’s helps operations personnel become more productive.”

The pilot is due to end in December, at which point Wintershall Dea will assess the prospects for further implementation.
