“We want to be part of this change and shape our common technological landscape. The main question is: How do we want “The leading offshore E&P company” to look in 5 years?”

The question is formulated by Ole Jøran Askim, Special Adviser for Aker BP and also Chief Geophysicist Exploration. He is well aware that this view is challenging for the business, but is convinced there is no other way ahead.

“We in Aker BP want to create a platform with access to all data suitable for machine learning, artificial intelligence and autonome operations,” he explains.

The data platform will be open and standard API for applications and tools to plug in and make use of the data.

“We are against all attempts of locking data in to applications, we want openness to allow for maximum use of our data.”

Aker BP is operating on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) where the Government already has a high degree of accessibility to industry data.

“Seeing the potential value creation from digitalization, we see that more data could be made accessible for all, and organized in a better way for example for machine learning. This would unlock remaining potential on the NCS, both by discovering more petroleum resources and develop projects at much lower cost,” states Askim.
