Digital North Sea


Entry TRL

Target TRL




Project summary

This technology is an innovative digital platform that organises and brings together information that can lead to the life extension of installations in the North Sea.  It also collates and uses data to generate scopes of work that assist in the planning process for late life and decommissioning.

This digital technology allows oilfield infrastructure to be recreated in a 3D environment, creating a digital representation, or twin of all facilities including topsides, floating and subsea as well as incorporating seabed bathymetry.

The intent of this project is to demonstrate that infrastructure from more than one operator can be digitised to create a “Digital North Sea” that can be used as part of managing safe, efficient operation and provide valuable, easily accessible data that will benefit in late life and decommissioning planning.
