Artificial Intelligence & Digitalization Day Enabling 4.0 , ADNOC Sour Gas, Abu Dhabi

It has been broadly recognised that the Oil & Gas Industry has lagged somewhat behind other sectors in recent years when it comes to digitalization, something ADNOC are now working hard to address across their enterprise.

ADNOC’s integrated 2030 strategy is to transform the way value is maximised from every barrel of oil and help meet the world’s growing demand for energy.  As part of this strategy ADNOC Sour Gas is exploring innovative methods across the entire value chain to improve operational performance in its upstream and downstream assets to gain competitive advantage in the future and deliver a more sustainable and economic gas supply.

A key component of this strategy is to work collaboratively with partners to foster better knowledge sharing and enable the co-development of cutting edge intellectual property and technology.  Today’s event for ADNOC Sour Gas employees and invited guests from other Opco’s was a practical example of how ADNOC is actively pursuing this goal.

Mr Fahad Al Wahedi, Acting Vice President of Technical & Engineering Services delivered the opening address and DIGATEX were honoured to contribute to the day alongside Siemens, Wood, IBM, Emerson and Landmark Haliburton.

Robert Frow, shared some practical examples of how DIGATEX has been using its AI platform (DI-analytics) to help similar companies in the Resources Sector transform legacy data and documents, resolving engineering data business problems that, in many instances, have created a barrier to faster adoption of Digitalization.

We look forward to further collaborative working with ADNOC and its partners.  For further information please contact Robert.frow@digatex.com or our Marketing Director, louise.webb@digatex.com

Mastering your Engineering Data – Opportunities for those that embrace digital transformation pragmatically

By | November 4th, 2018|Categories: Articles|0 Comments

Apologies for the long delay in this follow up to the Laggards and Leaders article that I wrote and published a year ago, I got side tracked chasing an opportunity to do pragmatic digital transformation and it’s rather changed my view of things! In my last post, laggards or leaders, I argued we (the industry) are laggards in the [...]
