Paweł Majewski, PGNiG CEO, said:
- Our specialists have extensive experience and expertise, which, however, come up against natural constraints of the human mind
- With artificial intelligence, machine learning and cloud solutions, we will be able to speed up analytical processes and increase the amount and detail of data processed
- This will help us improve the operational and financial efficiency of PGNiG’s exploration and production activities
The application of IT technologies to support PGNiG’s exploration & production activities will increase domestic recoverable gas reserves by over 11 bcm in 2019–2022 and provide an opportunity to tap into these resources.
What is more, it will help to extend the field life by an average of 10 years.
In 2019, the company unveiled its Digital Field platform, which integrates the work of specialists in various fields of expertise related to hydrocarbon production in a single field model.
Robert Perkowski, VP of the PGNiG Management Board, Operations, noted:
- Smart Field is a natural extension of the Digital Field, but it’s so much more than an upgrade from the previous system
- The ability to remotely handle processes related to the design of exploration and production works has become vital considering the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic
- Time overruns escalate costs
- With the Smart Field solution, we minimise the risk of delays by providing universal access to data and specialist software from any location of the PGNiG Group
