12:00 PM ROUNDTABLE J Determining the Organisational and Culture Change Needed to Support Digital Transformation for FPSOs
The FPSO industry is well-known for being slow to adopt digital solutions even though it could save millions in costs and help streamline operations. Are the available solutions not relevant enough to justify the investment or is it due to a deep-seated reason such as top-down organisational culture? In this round-table, delegates will:
- Explore reasons why the FPSO industry is slow to adopt cost-savings digital solutions
- Discuss whether a shift in organisational culture is needed to change a company’s mindset to adopt digital solutions
- Look at some of the culture change that a company can adopt in order to speed up adoption of digital solutions
The Armada Kraken FPSO, which is currently operating in the Kraken field in the UK North Sea, completed the offloading of its first cargo on 12 September 2017. This is Bumi Armada’s first foray into heavy oil production and has the largest liquid-handling capacity in its fleet at 460,000 barrels of liquid per day. In this session, vessel owner Bumi Armada will share the challenges it faced constructing the vessel, how it overcame tight deadlines and also key lessons learnt in project execution, maintenance and operations.
