Norwegian continental shelf
Statoil will in 2018 establish a new onshore integrated operations centre (IOC) that will help increase safety, add value and reduce emissions from our installations on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).
An integrated operations centre (IOC) is an important step in Statoil’s digital roadmap, and will enable increased production efficiency and production potential on the NCS. In a 10-year perspective, our ambition is that the increase in production from our operated fields could lead to a total annual value creation of around NOK 10 billion before tax.
“The establishment of the centre contributes strongly to our ambition of being a global digital leader. It will enable us to optimise production and better predict support needs, ensuring optimally efficient and safe operations from our operated fields. The centre will be essential to progressing the good improvement work on the NCS, and capturing additional value for Statoil, our partners and society,” says Statoil’s chief executive officer, Eldar Sætre.
“The centre may also improve sharing of knowledge in our organisation and further improve our collaboration with our suppliers and partners,” says Sætre.
The location of the new centre will be decided next year. It will integrate Statoil’s existing production support centres and condition monitoring centres, which are located in various parts of Norway.
“The IOC establishment will build on existing condition monitoring and specialist centres. The integrated operations centre will take a more proactive approach by gathering inter-disciplinary resources that may utilise extended data integration, visualisation, analysis and new technology, supporting our installations on the NCS to an even greater extent than now,”
says Kjetil Hove, Statoil’s senior vice president for operations technology on the NCS.
