Drilling Data Hub Demonstration - New project granted funding through DEMO 2000
02.05.2017DEMO 2000 in the Research Council of Norway has allocated 85 million to a total of 13 projects for demonstration and testing of new technology.
- The Government's focus on research and technology development in the petroleum sector is crucial for us to also be able to develop energy resources on the Norwegian continental shelf in a profitable and sustainable manner - even in the future, says Petroleum Director in RCN, Siri Helle Friedemann.
The primary objective of the project "Drilling Data Hub Demonstration" is to demonstrate a seamless integration and exchange of relevant data between all the partners involved on a drilling operation. This includes streaming data to operating companies offices and data management systems.
- The relevant providers and consumers of data in a drilling operation will be participating with their own workstations and software, says Vice President Erlend H. Vefring in IRIS. The demonstration is to be performed in IRIS’ OpenLab Drilling's virtual drilling environment, he continues.
The OpenLab Drilling is on The Norwegian Roadmap for Research Infrastructure, and the demonstration will constitute the first large research project utilizing the infrastructure.
Seven of the 13 projects granted funding are based in Rogaland county, read more here.
