Full Agenda

Tuesday, November 27, 2018
Norwegian Petroleum Museum

Finding Petroleum / Digital Energy Journal's Stavanger 8th Autumn forum on November 27 looks at how digital technology can do more to help manage offshore operations, including preparation / management of engineering data, machinery, asset integrity, safety and production.

Companies are generating large amounts of data, but working out how to use it to drive better decision making can be hard.

Should we be making more use of model driven software engineering techniques, when we build a model of what the software should do or inform people of, and build software from that model?


We are interested to hear from companies who have interesting technologies and approaches which can help improve offshore operations with digital technology. To discuss further please contact Karl Jeffery on Please note the business model for this event is for free delegate tickets but covering the costs with financial contributions from service companies speaking at the event

State of the art processes to capture the digital twin - international standardisation efforts for data handover requirements

Talk Description

The maturing and convergence of many technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Augmented Connectivity, Sensor & Data Fusion, Image and Video Analytics, Visualization, Robotics and Drones, Edge Computing and many more are enablers for radical change to the way work is performed on operating assets such as offshore facilities.

A cornerstone for the successful implementation of digital work processes, the digital transformation of industrial facilities is a high quality description of the facility design and configuration and associated information, the “digital twin”.

How can this be provided for legacy facilities that are 10 to 20 years old or even older? How can facility owners ensure that new facilities and extensions to legacy facilities are delivered with a high quality digital twin that meets their needs for digital operations?

This presentation will look at state of the art processes to ensure capture of the digital twin and international standardization efforts to define requirements for handover.

Once the digital twin is established how can this be leveraged across the operations enterprise IT landscape for use in ERP, reliability, ISSoW and other systems to improve operations safety, efficiency and predictability and truly transform operations? This presentation will examine how interoperability between the digital twin and other operations systems can promote Operational Excellence, reduce errors and enable better and faster decision making by providing the correct information in context to enable improved ways of working to improve efficiency and reduce risk.
Adrian has been with Hexagon PPM (previously Intergraph) for 10 years and serves as the Vice President for Information Management. He is responsible for global business development for information management solutions serving the process, power and marine industries.

He has over 30 years’ experience working in the process industry and joined Intergraph from the Norwegian owner operator Statoil where he was engaged for 16 years including in various information management roles including Advisor in technical information management responsible for the implementation of applications for plant information management and project execution.

He has also extensive experience in managing engineering data, information logistics in CAPEX projects and the handover of data and documentation from major CAPEX projects to operations.

Adrian has also previously worked for EPC contractor Davy McKee based in the UK, ABB and Cap Gemini.

10:15 Dr Duncan Irving - Practice Partner, oil and gas

Duncan Irving is the Oil & Gas Consulting Team Lead, EMEA & APAC with Teradata. Duncan joined Teradata from the University of Manchester where he instructed in geophysical interpretation and geocomputational methods for the last seven years. He was involved in consulting and research projects involving user interactions with massive subsurface datasets and more general upstream data management, and he continues to maintain research links as an honorary lecturer. One long term project was with Teradata and he drove the development of Teradata's capabilities in the Upstream Oil and Gas area. This time provided him with a deep understanding of the capabilities of Teradata and how they can best be used in the petroleum industry.
He is a geophysicist and also has a PhD in glacial geophysics and geotechnical engineering (why frozen ground moves faster during climate warming and how this affects infrastructure). Duncan lives in the hills outside Manchester with his wife and three children. He is a mountaineer, fell runner and is a card-carrying member of the CAMpaign for Real Ale.

Teradata is the world's largest company solely focused on creating enterprise agility through databa
