Capgemini today announced that it has signed a new strategic framework agreement with Statoil , an international energy company with operations in over 30 countries worldwide. Under the agreement, Capgemini will support Statoil and its Digital Center of Excellence (CoE) with services to further develop and deliver Statoil’s digital roadmap. The contract will run for the next three years.
After a competitive tender process, Capgemini was selected by Statoil as one of its strategic partners.
Statoil’s ambition is to become a digital leader within its core areas. In April 2017 Statoil decided to launch a companywide digital roadmap. A CoE has been established to shape Statoil’s digital roadmap, incubate new cross company digital initiatives, and support projects with digital capabilities.
Capgemini will support Statoil through its team of digital experts. The agreement covers a number of specialist digital services within a broad scope of work, including data exploration and visualization, statistical modelling and predictive analytics, data engineering, digital strategy and digital service design. The services will primarily be delivered by Capgemini to Statoil’s operations in Norway, but also to other global locations as well.
Statoil’s digital roadmap, which Capgemini will support, is focused on three distinct technology and value-creation priorities:
1. Process digitization to improve data management and efficiency in Statoil’s core business and support processes, including the utilization of intelligent software robots.
2. Advanced analytics to improve understanding of large, complex and diverse data to enable more informed decision making, utilizing algorithms and applications to predict equipment failure, optimize production and improve decision support.
3. Robotics and remote control to limit human exposure in physically intense activities, utilizing physical robots and sensors to automate drilling, facilitate remote operation of installations and centralize operation and support centers.
“We are very proud and pleased that Statoil has chosen us as a strategic partner for its digitization and we look forward to supporting them on their digital journey. This agreement will further strengthen our well-established and highly valued partnership,” says Anil Agarwal, Head of Capgemini in Norway and Sweden.
Statoil has big ambitions for building internal digital competency and transforming the company into being a digital leader amongst the major energy suppliers. Capgemini will use its breadth and experience across industries and disciplines to support Statoil´s digital roadmap. The services will be delivered over the next three years.
