NOBLE TO PARTNER WITH GE ON THE DIGITAL RIG SOLUTION

Noble Corporation and GE jointly announced a partnership to collaborate on an advanced data analytics system for offshore drilling rigs known as the Digital Rig solution. The Digital Rig solution aims to significantly improve the operational productivity of Noble's drilling rigs. By utilizing data analytics to make asset management more efficient, the Digital Rig solution will allow Noble to better manage the asset lifecycle and provide a more productive drilling operation for customers. The agreement calls for GE to initially deploy its latest digital asset performance management system on four Noble drilling rigs as part of a fleet pilot program. The expected efficiencies captured through the implementation of the Digital Rig solution target a 20 percent reduction in repair and maintenance expenditures across the pilot rigs. The 'data-driven drilling' model created by combining Noble's operational knowledge with GE's advanced data analytics system will have a transformative impact on the entire drilling ecosystem, including: • Enhanced Drilling Process Efficiency – Foresight of asset anomalies and drilling process deviations to reduce operational disruptions and enhance performance consistency. • Shift to Predictive Asset Management – Redefinition of maintenance strategies, with a focus on predictive asset management to achieve long-term, sustainable operational expenditure reductions across the fleet. • Reduction of Third-party Service Costs – Anytime, anywhere rig visibility and insights that leverage the one-to-many impact of shore-based experts to reduce third-party service costs. In addition, the Digital Rig solution will provide real-time asset data to onshore experts around the globe. These experts will be able to actively monitor aspects of the drilling process and will have foresight and visibility into the condition of the assets. By allowing onshore experts to remotely diagnose and advise offshore personnel of issues before they occur, there is a potential to reduce third-party service costs. (Source: Noble Corp.)
