Digital twins improve Oil & Gas productivity and performance, and reduced costs, waste and downtime.
Digital twins enhance asset maintenance, safety and environmental protection initiatives.
drives supply chain efficiency and site safety, and
Digital twins monitor operations, equipment, and personnel and helped predict wear and prevent costly failures before they occur.
Continuous loading of conditions and inspection data, providing the ability to carry out structural assessments based on the “as is” condition, from anywhere and at any time.
Identifying critical areas for prioritised inspection, maintenance and repair; reducing the personnel on board the asset; reducing the necessity for physical inspections in hard-to-reach areas, such as cargo tanks; and supporting scenario planning for extreme weather events and asset modification.
Enabling safe asset life extension by replacing the over-conservative estimates made with conventional simulation software, with accurate assessments that reflect actual remaining fatigue life.
Use of high-fidelity, physics-based models and machine-learning algorithms to simulate the actual operation of a plant or asset, and generates synthetic data where measurements are not available.
Streamlining capital projects. With a plan to deliver several subsea tie-back projects over the next 10 years, Shell is implementing an integrated digital project and engineering environment, which spans project conception in the early phase design through to handover.
Streamlining capital projects processes and accelerating time to first oil by providing interoperability across owner and supply chain systems.
An end-to-end platform that provides visibility and transparency to project and engineering data across Shell’s portfolio to deliver competitive projects.
