OMV and Aker BP announce digitalization partnership

OMV and Aker BP announce digitalization partnership


Vienna, May 30 - Neftegaz.RU.
Austrian OMV and Norway´s Aker BP, signed a MoU, committing to share digitalization competencies and technology across borders and advancing both companies’ digital agendas.

Together, the 2 companies will collaborate on projects that explore how to set up and execute wide-scale digital transformation processes. Aker BP will share best practices from Eureka, their digital transformation program that started 2 years ago.

These insights will advance the digital maturity of OMV Upstream and also benefit a wide range of suppliers and partners connected to OMV’s operations. In turn, OMV will share the insights from its digitalization program DigitUP to advance the digital transformation of Aker BP.

Aker BP and OMV are also planning joint collaboration and technology projects within the areas of operational efficiency, drilling and subsurface. These projects will involve agile ways of co-developing use cases and advancing technology together with Cognite, Scandinavia’s fastest-growing technology company.

“The future of the oil & gas industry is digital. OMV is committed to leading the change as a digital frontrunner together with Aker BP and Cognite”, said Johann Pleininger, responsible for Upstream and Deputy Chairman of OMV.

“We are excited to partner with OMV to advance digitalization across the industry. Our experiences with Eureka highlight how liberated, contextualized data can help companies optimize production, reduce costs, and increase worker safety. And as our work with Cognite shows, finding the right technology partner is an integral part of that digital transformation process”, said Karl Johnny Hersvik, CEO of Aker BP.
