Offshore oil and gas digitalisation software provider and systems integrator, Eigen, has rolled out a digital portal for Lundin Norway’s drilling operations.

Lundin Norway digital drilling operations portal implementation launched

The Drilling Portal is now live and combines remote monitoring of information from multiple different systems to provide a quick and intuitive overview of all drilling operations. A search functionality also allows access across historic information, reports and ‘lessons learned’.

This eliminates the time spent by operatives looking for information and attempting to understand current status to allow them to focus on priority tasks. It also reduces email clutter and enables drilling management to share accurate information across departments - reducing the risk of acting on incorrect information and improving shared awareness.

The portal has been deployed under a new type of agreement called Development as a Service (DaaS) and its underlying system is the first of its kind in drilling operations. Traditionally drilling operations involve emailing multiple reports and spreadsheets across many different stakeholders. This caused inefficiency and challenges in identifying the current status of operations while increasing the risk of accidentally acting on erroneous information.

To address this, the system also includes smart email processing to extract and store relevant information from emails for display search to reduce inbox clutter and a news channel for publishing relevant internal content.

Lundin’s Project Lead, Martin Westeng, said: ““We are proud to have developed and launched this portal in collaboration with Eigen. Its users will now have much easier access to the correct information and an enhanced ability to access it, alongside a reduction in inbox clutter. The portal will go a long way towards making platform operatives more efficient and helping them to spend less time looking for information. In the near future we plan to add further digital functionality enhancements to the platform.”

“As engineers that understand IT in Oil and Gas, we can have high bandwidth conversations with customers and bring good ideas to the table, rather than just following a brief,” said Murray Callander, CEO, Eigen. ”We believe this project further underlines the growing industry recognition of our expertise in delivering complex integration projects and supporting companies at the cutting edge of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation.”

Eigen has been Lundin’s digitalisation partner since 2015. During this time, it has helped Lundin to deliver operations dashboards, real-time visibility of people offshore, two mobile apps, a wearable, a digital meetings and reports facility and the ability to search across multiple systems.
