Eni Norge AS – Statement on Integrated Operations
The term “Integrated Operations” is defined as the combination of work culture, integration of applications, operational procedures and the collaborative environment where work is carried out and decisions made. This is all aimed at optimising production, facilitating decision-making processes and supporting and improving planning.’
Eni Norge AS envisions becoming the most advanced and successful operator on Integrated Operations.
Eni E&P IO
- Q1 2010 SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation) was contracted by Eni E&P to develop an IO application. Lately SAIC’s Oil & Gas IT practice was acquired by Wipro Ltd., however this will not disrupt the development effort or any defined deliverables.
- Eni Norge AS and particularly the Goliat asset operation has been chosen to become one of the early adaptors of the Eni E&P IO application
- It is expected that the IO application will become the main interface to conduct work and to access data and application
- 20+ business processes have been defined, covering all the operational entities (Reservoir, Well, Production, District, HSEQ and Logistics), and will be conducted using the IO application.
Keywords describing functionality of the IO application are:
- Automated notifications (related to equipment issues or workflow action, issued inline or by SMS/e-mail)
- Application automation (where applicable)
- Advanced workflows built-in (people and applications)
- KPI’s, graphs and trending functionalities
- Operational Knowledge Base (lessons learned, future references)
- 3d and final release of the IO application is expected to be handed over to Eni E&P October 31st 2011. Following this, Eni Norge will have additional modules built to support the Logistics and Maintenance business processes.
- Wipro will start the deployment of the IO application here no later than Q2 2012. Thus it is expected to have the application ready to be tested and verified as ready for operation by the end of Q4 2012.
The platform/application should allow for a multidisciplinary conduction of work to happen independently of location. By providing easy access to necessary real-time data the application should allow people to work proactively rather than reactively – a key success-factor in operating in a safe manner.
To supplement the IO application and working in an Integrated Operations manner, Eni Norge AS will shortly be contracting a supplier to conduct a Collaborative Environment study. The outcome of this study should address equipment to be used, the different working environments and the 'man-machine' interfaces.
