Project summary

We’re supporting Tech27 to develop and trial an innovative artificially intelligent solution that reduces non-productive time for drilling operations, with the potential to save the UK oil and gas industry more than £20 million per year.

The ‘MindSet AI’ system will monitor, alert and predict future outcomes to decrease non-productive time in Mobile Offshore Drilling Units. The technology will be delivered as a digital twin that will visually replicate the actual rig operation, providing predictive alerts through a visual interface.

The project is also supported by an international drilling contractor who will provide data, personnel and systems during the development phase, with the solution then trialled offshore on their asset to evaluate its ability to detect and predict equipment failure.
