Huawei Holds Global Energy Summit 2017 and Demonstrates Safe and Efficient Oil and Gas ICT Solutions at ADIPEC

2017/11/13 0:00:00 Author: Source:

[Abu Dhabi, U.A.E, November 13, 2017] Huawei held its Global Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi on November 12. With the theme of 'Leading New ICT for Higher Safety and Efficiency in the Oil and Gas Industry', this summit attracted more than 200 customers, partners, and senior experts from the oil and gas industry, who gathered to discuss how to reduce costs, ensure safe operations, achieve sustainable development, and boost the oil and gas industry's transition to smart operations. During the annual Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), Huawei, together with industry partners, such as Schlumberger, Honeywell, SAP, and Richfit, demonstrated a series of innovative ICT solutions which cover the entire industry chain from exploration, production, storage, and transportation to distribution.

Safe and Efficient Huawei Digital Oil and Gas Solutions, Serve 70 Percent of Global Top 20 Oil and Gas Companies

With the growth of global energy demands, the oil and gas industry faces intense competition and severe challenges. Oil and gas companies, as well as investors urgently need to use the latest information technologies and management processes to reduce costs and ensure safe operations. Given these situations, innovative ICT plays an important role in digital transformation of the oil and gas industry. 

Mr. Jerry Ji, President of the Energy Sector of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, delivered the keynote speech at the summit. Mr. Jerry Ji said, "It is an honor for Huawei to see all guests at the summit. Today's oil and gas industry is facing tremendous challenges. For example, the average oil recovery rate in the entire industry is only about 37%; over 70% oilfield assets are not effectively monitored and managed; more than 90% incidents arise from man-made improper operations. In addition, oilfield operations are still labor-intensive. Many workers are heavily tasked with routine check and maintenance. All these lead to higher costs, lower efficiency, and unsatisfactory yields for oil companies. To help oil companies confidently address these challenges, continuous digital construction and digital transformation are among the most feasible ways. Based on its ever-deepened understanding of oil and gas industry services, Huawei cooperates with more and more industry partners to launch innovative ICT solutions such as High-Performance Computing (HPC), oil and gas Internet of Things (IoT), digital pipeline, and enterprise operations management. These solutions help the oil and gas industry implement and accelerate digital transformation, continuously lower costs and improve efficiency, and enhance safe production and operations management."

Huawei’s oil and gas solutions are utilized in 45 countries and regions around the world, serving 70 percent of the global top 20 oil and gas companies. One example is Huawei’s cooperation with Santos, the largest onshore oil and gas producer in Australia. Santos’ original narrowband production network for gas fields has been replaced with a 4G LTE IoT network which Huawei helped to build. These deployments enable Santos to collect and analyze data in real time, and more accurately detect services. Now, Santos’ overall work efficiency has improved by 40 percent. Additionally, Huawei won the bid this year for a communications system reconstruction project for the Tazama crude oil pipeline. This pipeline is 1,710 kilometers long and extends from Kigamboni, Tanzania to Ndola, Zambia. For this project, Huawei provided a digital pipeline solution.

During ADIPEC, Huawei demonstrated solutions covering HPC for exploration and reservoirs, seismic data storage, exploration and production cloud, digital oilfield production, digital oil and gas pipelines, digital refinery, and cloud data center. For example, Huawei’s innovative converged HPC solution helps oil and gas companies accelerate seismic data processing, numerical reservoir simulations, and 3D visualization for more efficient and accurate optimization in addition to forecasting of oil and gas areas — all designed to help oil and gas companies improve productivity.

Oil and Gas IoT Development Promotes Energy Ecological Cooperation

At the summit, Dr. Hatem Nasr, the Senior Advisor of digital oilfields, and industry experts from McKinsey, Asia Gas Pipeline (AGP), and Qamar Energy gave speeches on topics such as “Digital transformation drives revolutionary changes in the oil and gas industry.”

In the upstream production sector, Dr. Ali Ahmed Jama, Schlumberger Global Production Business Development Manager, gave a speech at the summit discussing a new approach to the digital oilfield through a production operations advisory solution. The solution leverages Schlumberger’s extensive digital oilfield experience, and research and development expertise to create a unique user experience, bringing a combination of petroleum engineering, science, and digital technologies to take on the challenges that exist in the core processes of E&P companies.

Regarding oil and gas storage and transportation, the biggest challenge facing oil and gas pipeline operations is pipeline safety. Moreover, oil and gas companies are looking for new ways to implement remote control and efficient operations of long-distance pipelines.

Mr. Guo Xiaoqiang, Deputy Managing Director of Abu Dhabi Branch of China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering Corporation (CPPE), pointed out: “By leveraging key technologies such as the IoT, cloud computing, Big Data, and AI, we can have in-depth and comprehensive detection and control on pipeline reliability and security, and improve the pipelines’ operating efficiency to the greatest extent. With the support of new ICT technologies and combination of professional services capabilities, we can advance the development of new-generation digital pipelines characterized by unprecedented levels of ‘Smartness’.”

To date, 197 companies on Fortune’s Global 500 list, 45 of which are in the top 100, have selected Huawei as their partner for digital transformation.
