Prediktor AS announces partnership with Aker BP for OPC UA-based modelling of drilling data

January 7, 2019 - Prediktor AS announced that Aker BP has selected Prediktor for a partnership agreement. This agreement is for OPC UA-based modelling of drilling data via the Apis Software Platform. The first delivery will be to the Maersk Invincible drilling rig, owned by Maersk Drilling A/S. After this, Apis will be rolled out to multiple other Aker BP drilling assets.

The overall objective of the agreement is to provide a unified way of accessing drilling data - not only standardized on protocol, but also on data semantics. Data access will be through Aker BP’s Cognite cloud platform, their drilling monitoring solution and other 3rd party applications. OPC UA-based information modelling enables Aker BP to use models that can be shared between companies. This is intended to make the sharing of data throughout the industry much easier, while avoiding locking data to specific applications.

The Apis Software Platform, a data historian and tool for creating OPC UA-based information models, fulfills this objective. Data from legacy plant systems will be collected using a variety of protocols such as Modbus, Classic OPC, OPC UA, WITS0 and WITSML. The data will then be logged and mapped to information models.
