HOUSTON—When the Johan Sverdrup Field in the North Sea comes onstream later this year, it will not only begin its journey toward producing as much as 660,000 barrels per day at peak. The field will also serve as an example of how Equinor and partners are turning digital talk into reality.

The field will have a digital twin, providing access to 3-D model and real-time information, including via iPads or mobile phones, Anders Opedal, executive vice president of technology, projects and drilling for Equinor, told attendees of Halliburton’s Landmark Innovation Forum and Expo (LIFE) on Aug. 27. Such technology, he said, enables offshore workers to increase efficiency and safety with real-time collaboration through live checklists and work orders.
