At the Global Oil & Gas Summit 2021 in Abu Dhabi with the theme of ‘Drive Data to Barrel, Embrace Intelligence to Grow,’ Huawei has released a new solution – Intelligent Oil & Gas Fields – designed to help oil and gas enterprises to go digital
The solution covers several aspects of digitalisation, including campus security, production inspection and predictive maintenance.
The world agrees that energy and digital transformation are essential for the planet's future. Lv Gongxun, former vice-president of PetroChina, CNPC, pointed out that digital transformation of the oil and gas industry will bring innovative service, business model, and management models to the industry.
Carbon neutrality signals both new challenges and opportunities for the global energy industry. In his opening speech, Robin (Yongping) Lu, executive vice-president of Global Energy Business Unit of Huawei Enterprise BG, highlighted the importance of integrating energy and digital transformation to achieve carbon neutrality. To do so, energy and technology industries need to collaborate, reinforcing each other's strengths and exploring various industry scenarios.
The solution aims to help oil and gas companies cope with the risks and costs, address data silos, as well as quickly respond to emergencies and build robust information security systems. Based on the solution architecture, Huawei will continuously enhance digital platforms and production service applications, implement data interconnection through the IoT, and drive flattened management transformation.
Accelerating collaboration of all fields in the industry
At the summit, Huawei also demonstrated its all-scenario solutions and technical capabilities in upstream exploration, development and production, midstream pipeline asset management, and downstream refining and chemical sales.
The widespread adoption of such technologies as cloud computing, big data, AI and 5G makes it easier to discover potential data value, improving the E2E efficiency of oil companies in oil exploration, development, production, storage, transportation, refining and sales.
Zhang Tiegang, former deputy chief engineer of the Exploration and Development Research Institute of Daqing Oilfield, explained the advantages of the Intelligent Oil & Gas Fields solution in real-life scenarios. Using Huawei's cloud computing capabilities, Daqing Oilfield processed over 22,000 sq km of seismic data in 2020, which is more than twice the original data processing capability.
