Digitalization is emerging as a technological driver of change around the world and provides businesses with abundant opportunities for growth and monetary gain. While industries like manufacturing and healthcare have taken the digitalization world by storm, the oil and gas industry has been remarkably slow to adopt this new way of thinking.

Most of today’s digital initiatives in oil and gas are incremental rather than disruptive. Some offshore operators are taking a step forward to make improvements in technical or operational capabilities, but many are not fully embracing the power digitalization can provide. Numerous benefits such as increased cost savings and signiﬁcant improvements in collaboration, productivity, maintenance and revenue can be realized through digitalization if more offshore operators would take the technological plunge.

Online tool supports global collaboration, accelerates timelines by up to 80% and saves costs by up to 70% across the life of a project
HOUSTON – (May 1, 2017) – Xvision Software has launched FieldAP, the first 100% cloud-based technology for the energy industry providing offshore project managers with an online tool for visual field development, digital planning and cost containment. The online tool is capable of accelerating project timelines by up to 80%, especially during the early concept and FEED phases. These time savings can drive cost savings as high as 70% across the life of the project.

“No one else who has developed similar tools. Subsea developments are too niche for the major suppliers of project tools, so a small Norwegian company founded the idea” says director Martin Sorensen

Farvel til papirbunkene!
I praksis betyr dette at man kan si farvel til de store papirhaugene, istedet får man en visuell brukerflate der man øyeblikkelig kjenner seg igjen og hva som foregår.
