Establishing a Digital Centre of Excellence
Equinor generates vast quantities of data. Now we’re accelerating our digitalisation efforts by establishing a Digital Centre of Excellence and launching a digital road map.
Digitalisation is not just about new technologies, but also about radically changing the way we work.
And that’s because our most important resource isn’t oil, gas, or even renewables—it’s people. And in Equinor, we’re already well prepared with competent employees. No matter how advanced artificial intelligence gets, it will always be the people who define our success. To succeed, we must attract world-class talent, invest in competence building internally, and be open to collaboration and learning from others.
The Centre of Excellence will collaborate with external specialist communities, have dedicated units for data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and leaders for digital programmes.
Equinor will recruit candidates for the centre of excellence internally and externally, and the leader of the Centre reports to Equinor’s chief operating officer (COO).
Reduced process lead time and manual human input for non-physical processes
Improved understanding of large, complex and diverse data to enable more informed decision-making
Robotics and remote control
Improved reliability, reduced cost and increased safety by limiting human intervention in physically intensive activities
