The petroleum sector is Norway’s most important industry. In order to maintain and develop the level of activity both in Norway and internationally, development of expertise, collaboration and new technology is required.
Integrated operations use ICT solutions based on real time data to integrate work prosesses across professions and between organizations. With the help of smart real time solutions, operations can be managed independently of distance – for example between platforms offshore and operation centres onshore. By using video-and visualization tools, an expert can from anywhere in the world solve a drilling problem in real time.
The aim of Arena Integrated Operations is to establish a thriving industry environment with the objective of making the cluster the world leader within integrated operations and real-time management of reservoirs. The main objective is to contribute to the added value within the industry through increased profitability and competitiveness among the cluster participants.
