Cancelled – Operational Digital Twins: Real Experience in Delivering Virtual Worlds

September 21, 2021 @ 4:45 pm - 5:00 pm

$10.00 – $15.00

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is pleased to announce the September Facilities Group Technical Event lead by Greg Sevel and Andy Jones

About the Presentation

Just defining a Digital Twin can be a complex ordeal. So, it should not be surprising that actually creating a useful Digital Twin of an Oil and Gas asset is a challenging and non-linear journey. Worley Digital and Sentient Computing have spent the better part of the last decade approaching this challenge from opposite sides, often partnering to provide a more holistic solution to our customers. Operating on the bleeding edge, we have had our share of failures, learnings, and successes in our journey.

In this presentation, we openly discuss our experiences: what worked and what did not, the challenges that we continue to face, the rationale behind each of our approaches and the future that we see for the Digital Twin sector.

He spent 21 years of his career in dynamic process simulation modelling and digital technology-based solutions.

He has been developing digital twin applications for the past 15 years, a long time before the term digital twin was in popular use. Lately he has been combining the greatest strengths of traditional first principles engineering and simulation-based applications with best of the data science approach including machine learning and artificial intelligence. He is also pioneering augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) customer solutions.

He graduated from the University of Nottingham, UK in 1994 with an BSc (Hons) in Chemical Engineering and also has a graduate certificate in data science from Deakin University, Melbourne.
