The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) announced a partnership with Honeywell as it embarks on one of the largest predictive maintenance projects in the oil and gas industry. Under the terms of a 10-year partnership agreement, ADNOC will utilize Honeywell’s state-of-the-art asset monitoring and predictive analytics platform to maximize asset efficiency and integrity across ADNOC’s upstream and downstream operations.
Leveraging Artifical Intelligence (AI) technologies like machine learning and digital twins, the platform will help predict equipment stoppages, reduce unplanned equipment maintenance and downtime, increase reliability and safety, and enable substantial cost savings for ADNOC.
ADNOC’s predictive maintenance project is part of the company’s flagship Centralized Predictive Analytics and Diagnostics (CPAD) program. CPAD, which underpins ADNOC’s 2030 smart growth strategy and Oil & Gas 4.0 initiatives, aims at transforming the company’s operations to maximize value from every barrel of oil, while delivering the greatest possible returns to the UAE.
ADNOC will deploy Honeywell Forge Asset Monitor and Predictive Analytics solutions at its Panorama Digital Command Center in its headquarters. The Panorama Digital Command Center currently aggregates real-time information across all business units and uses smart analytical models, AI and big data to generate operational insights and recommend new pathways. The addition of Honeywell’s solutions will enable the central monitoring of up to 2,500 critical rotating equipment across all ADNOC Group companies.
Darius Adamczyk, chairman and CEO of Honeywell said: “We are proud to partner with ADNOC as they lead the transformation towards Oil & Gas 4.0 and embrace the power of IIoT. Honeywell Forge delivers the advanced capabilities business leaders need to harness big data to drive more efficient decision-making and exceed business goals. We look forward to ADNOC realizing these benefits after deploying this leading-edge technology.”
The predictive maintenance project is one of many digital transformation initiatives by ADNOC to embed cutting-edge technology across its entire value chain and deliver on its Oil & Gas 4.0 mission to stay ahead of the world’s growing demand for energy.
