Egil Hustvedt, a platform manager, demonstrates the digital twin of the Aasta Hansteen field. Equinor reached another milestone in its digital transformation with today’s official opening of two new onshore support centers that will centralize much of its offshore exploration and production activities. Located in Bergen, the company says that the centers have already helped boost production and improve safety. The expectation is that the digitally enabled centers and their multidisciplinary staff will create more than $2 billion in new value from 2020-2025. The integrated operations center saw its first test in September as it was connected to the Grane, Gina Krog, and Åsgard fields.
