Using Digital to create value in projects and operations.

CNOOC is the largest offshore operator in China and is also the owner of NEXEN. CNOOC has several deep water projects in the South China Sea under development, including Liuhua16-2/20-2, Lingshui 17-2 projects. In addition, Husky Energy is developing Liuhua 29-1. The above projects are all NORWEP Priority Projects; see .
CNOOC top management has communicated that digitalisation is an area they need to improve and will therefore welcome this topic at the NORWEP – CNOOC annual seminar.

In the seminar we want to address digitalization in field development and operations, which may contain some of the following topics:  

• Digital Transformation
• Value of digitalization, a digital journey through the oil & gas value chain

Digitalization in field development
• Selection of concept and design – the digital twin is born
• Efficient and seamlessly integrated project execution – the digital twin is delivered
• How can digital technologies (ex. AI) fundamentally change how we do field development?

Digitalization in Operations
• Collection and visualization of operational data – the digital twin is “alive”
• Optimization of production and integrity management of infrastructure 
• How to create value from insights
• How to create a sustainable ecosystem and business models in the Life of Field phase
