KDI and Aker BP extends collaboration agreement to accelerate data utilization

The purpose of the agreement is to provide an enterprise-scale solution for real-time data aggregation and visualization, helping Aker BP to improve performance, safety and optimize well operations.

Building on an existing collaboration that has been ongoing since Aker BP was established, KDI will continue to contribute to accelerating Aker BP’s digitalization process by enabling real-time cloud-based data access, supporting decision-making, and improving efficiency.

Pedro Alcântara, SVP Digital Wells, Kongsberg Digital, says:

“We are happy to further strengthen our collaboration with Aker BP through this extended agreement. We appreciate that Aker BP continues to place their trust in the quality and performance that we offer with SiteCom”.

The SiteCom Enterprise Cloud is a centralized repository for real-time and historical data from drilling and well operations with an advanced platform where subscribers get access to powerful “plug and play” applications. The new agreement is delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS), allowing Aker BP to scale according to operational requirements.

Tommy Sigmundstad, SVP Drilling & Wells, Aker BP, says:

“It suits us to be the first company to take advantage of SiteCom Enterprise Cloud and the opportunities it enables. This will liberate more data and is another step in the digital transformation of our industry – a transformation where we not only intended to be first but also best.”

The contract was signed between Kongsberg Digital and Aker BP on 2nd November 2021, and the upgraded system integrations are expected to take place within the coming months.
