Kongsberg Digital has secured a significant contract with Norwegian energy company Equinor. The agreement entails rebuilding the Sleipner Life Cycle Simulators using Kongsberg Digital’s K-Spice and LedaFlow simulation technologies. The estimated worth of the agreement exceeds 25 million NOK.

Kongsberg Digital is proud to collaborate with Equinor on this significant project, which will significantly increase the simulation capabilities of the Sleipner area in the North Sea. By leveraging the latest simulator technologies from Kongsberg Digital, Equinor aims to enhance operational efficiency, improve training programs, and ensure the highest level of fidelity in simulator-based engineering.

To provide the multidisciplinary operation and engineering teams with a complete Life Cycle Simulator engineering and training tool environment, three simulators will be developed using K-Spice and LedaFlow simulation technologies:

- an Engineering Study Simulator (ESS)
- an Engineering Test Simulator (ETS)
- an Operator Training Simulator (OTS)

The simulators will model the processes of all wells, pipelines, and offshore production facilities for three different assets of the Sleipner installations. These assets include the Processing, Drilling, and Living quarter platform (A), the Unmanned Production platform (B), and the Processing and CO2 removal platform (T). Additionally, the project will involve modelling the power grid using K-Spice Grid.

The Sleipner Life Cycle Simulator project is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2024, with an estimated completion by the end of 2025. This two-year project will develop a dynamic simulator model incorporating topside process simulation models using K-Spice and multiphase flow models of production wells and flowlines using LedaFlow software.

"We are honoured to be collaborating with Equinor on the Sleipner Life Cycle Simulator project. Our commitment to this project underscores our dedication to providing comprehensive, trustworthy, and reliable 1st principle Digital solutions to the energy sector. We are confident that the Sleipner asset will greatly benefit from the enhanced operational efficiency, troubleshooting analysis and training opportunities our technologies offer.”, says Shane McArdle, Chief Executive Officer of Kongsberg Digital.
