GE and Noble Corporation jointly announced a partnership to collaborate on the Digital Rig solution, enabling data-driven operational efficiency by using data analytics, with the target of a 20 percent reduction in operational expenditure across the rigs.
Within the agreement, GE will initially deploy its latest marine Asset Performance Management (APM) system, powered by Predix*, on four of Noble’s drilling rigs. The partnership will allow data-driven operations intelligence to provide broad-ranging benefits for the selected assets on the program’s rigs:
- • Enhanced drilling process efficiency—Foresight visibility of equipment anomalies and drilling process deviations to reduce operational disruptions and enhance performance consistency.
- • Shift to predictive maintenance—Redefine maintenance strategies with a focus on predictive maintenance to achieve long-term, sustainable opex 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.
