Nigeria’s oil and gas sector can achieve an increase in revenue of $200 million in a year and improve production by five per cent with the latest technologies developed by Huawei.
The enterprise managing director of Huawei Technologies Company Nigeria Limited, Michael Zhuang who disclosed this yesterday at a special forum hosted by Huawei, themed, “Drive Data to Barrel” in Abuja, said the company will help Nigeria promote national oilfield data supervision.
This will in turn curb vandalism and oil leakage for oil pipelines by providing innovative solutions which can monitor illegal operations in oil depot, thereby significantly reducing oil tampering, reduce cost of operations and increase efficiency.
“We promote health, safety and environment (HSE) by reducing accidents for a safer and more secure Oilfield; reduce O&M each year to 15 million in total; achieve visualisation, monitoring and security management of pipeline and full process of oil depot; improve exploration and production (E&P) processing accuracy, that is, E&P data processing error rate will be reduced from an average of 10 per cent to two per cent.
“We improve E&P processing speed from the average hour level to the minute level and help E&P companies to find oil more accurately and faster to realise data to barrel”, adding that in Nigeria, Huawei has partnered with both international and local oil companies in upstream, middle stream and downstream to promote oil and gas digital transformation and remains committed to continuously providing support and innovation.
Informing the audience which had speakers from NNPC, PwC, IDSL, AGIP, SPE, guests and partners, he said in the upstream, they have installed an integrated oilfield IoT solution for AGIP which makes it possible to visualise and monitor real time production and reduce the vandalism on well sites.
“In the middle stream, we have delivered AKK Pipeline Camp with Huawei IVS monitoring and campus network/office solution to improve camp safety monitoring and office experience. In the downstream, we have also delivered our monitoring solution for NNPC retail to enable more safety and secure management at its HQ office and Mega Petrol Stations.
“On Enterprise Informationization, we have delivered a Green Modular Data Centre Solution for IDSL to reduce the data centre O&M cost and improve use efficiency. The Huawei Fusion Cube Solution in DPR for regional branches helps to reduce the IT O&M cost and enhance Unified Monitoring and Management.
Zhuang said Huawei is dedicated to promoting digital transformation and reducing the digital gap in all industries, adding that its oil and gas solutions have been applied in 45 countries and regions around the world, serving 70 per cent of global top 20 oil and gas companies and have incorporation to build more than 46,000 KM of digital pipelines globally.
