Information is the fuel for
the Energy industry’s digital journey
Oil & Gas will remain a key element of the energy mix and the manufacturing materials sector for some years to come. However, with the drive towards net zero and the increase of low carbon industries, the sector is charged with making a contribution to decarbonisation by increasing efficiencies.
Companies in the industry are starting to transform to stay relevant, achieve profitability and deliver investments into programmes and technology that will ensure their position within the energy transition.
The application of data-based operations can have a powerful and positive impact on oil & gas operations. The implementation of digital twins and autonomous inspection vehicles, for example, will help reduce the carbon footprint of assets and reduce the number of personnel trips offshore.
Connected data, implemented through a Master Data Model, provides the hub for information that can ensure effective operations. It breaks down silos, enhances collaboration and achieve the digital transformation the sector needs to support environmental targets and industry perceptions.

Innovative use of Data in the Energy Sector
TotalEnergies E&P UK –
TotalEnergies E&P UK who have a history of innovation and pioneering new technologies to support its business goals, developed a collaborative project that utilises robotics and mobility solutions to support a more efficient and safer way of working on their sites. However, as with all automated solutions base engineering information is key to success.
“TotalEnergies E&P UK believes that robots have a huge amount to offer the Energy industry. We are pioneering their use on oil and gas sites and this collaboration is helping us to make significant progress. Robotic offer immediate advantages such as increased safety and efficiency. In the long-term, they offer us new ways of working and are limited only by our imagination.”
“The collaboration with Phusion has expanded further than we initially hoped and has proven fit for purpose with the mobility team due for the forward thinking planning when implementing the solution.”
Kris Kydd, Head of Robotics, Total E&P UK Limited
“Chevron engaged Phusion in 2009 for Engineering Content Management Services on the Gorgon Project.
In partnership with the project’s EPCs and equipment suppliers, Phusion supported the collection and management of supplier data and documents.
Phusion provisioned a SaaS environment and provided technical and professional services to process and prepare data for Asset and Maintenance Management Systems.”
Ken Tran, Project Manager, Chevron
“Phusion performed well with the Data Management Contract for the INPEX, Ichthys Project.
This was a large and complex contract for data management, spanning five EPC contracts, across five countries. Phusion were responsive and worked with INPEX on the changing requirements of the contract due to EPC, Budget and Scope challenges.”
Adrian Barker, Maintenance Systems Manager, Inpex
“We found the Phusion Software web interface well thought-out and user-friendly, requiring minimal training to get used to the tool.
The possibility to import data directly from text files through mass upload allowed us to apply an efficient workflow, leveraging from our own equipment databases and minimizing manual data input.
The metrics features directly available in the tool were also great to monitor and report progress.
A key success factor was the excellent collaboration with the Phusion team, always available to provide guidance and support.”
Fabien Cochet, GE Project Director, Ichthys Project
“Good engineering information will contribute to increased production. Since more accurate data is available, we are able to optimise our maintenance programme to a higher level of detail. We can therefore optimise our downtime and spares holding to a larger extent than before.”
