New Delhi, July 28, 2020.

Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Ltd., the largest private oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) company in India has announced the deployment of Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software to improve decision-making, boost productivity, enhance efficiency and reduce manual paperwork, all while enabling workers to remotely operate their facilities.

The company has embarked on a digitalisation journey to drive safety, productivity and efficiency, and partnered with Honeywell to support them in their efforts. Focused on automating operator rounds and digitising control room logbooks, Honeywell solutions enabled faster handover between shifts by 50%. Honeywell Forge deployed by Cairn Oil & Gas is available on a cloud platform for quick and easy workflow and system maintenance configuration and is now enabling Cairn to accelerate digitalisation and maintain production by optimising resources.

“In this challenging business environment, we believe adoption and application of technology will make a huge difference to the industry and help maximise India’s hydrocarbons potential. Digitalisation of our operations has helped us in business continuity and maintaining optimum levels of production during the ongoing pandemic,” said Anand Laxshmivarahan R., Chief Digital Officer, Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Ltd. “Our partnership with Honeywell will drive increased efficiency, boost productivity and enhance decision-making at our facilities. The digitalisation of manual processes is helping Cairn achieve growth through the application of insights in operations across regions.”

The technology is enabling Cairn Oil & Gas industrial workers to remotely operate their plants while ensuring business continuity withthe following tools:

  • Honeywell Forge Inspection Rounds, which is an easy-to-use software solution that digitises end-to-end inspection workflows with an overarching goal to improve safety, productivity and connectivity to the deskless worker. Inspection Rounds runs directly on mobile devices and enables field technicians to easily capture data through pre-defined workflows. It also works offline and automatically synchronizes data in the cloud when connectivity is available. This feature is very useful in areas where mobile network connectivity is weak.
  • Honeywell Forge Operations Management, which is a single auditable repository for all logged plant-related operational activity. It also helps with improved situational awareness, communication and decision making during the shift handover and takeover.

“We are happy to partner with Cairn in their mission to strengthen control room automation and enhance effectiveness and efficiencies,” said Akshay Bellare, president, Honeywell India. “Honeywell Forge provides actionable recommendations, highlighted with potential economic impact for business and operations. By adopting digitalisation in the workflow process, exploration and production, our customers have witnessed significant operational improvements. As connected technologies and remote work continues to develop, plant-wide applications in oil and gas will continue to grow as well — enabling workers to do their jobs in a safer and a more efficient way than ever before.”

Cairn Oil & Gas is one of the first companies in the upstream industry to implement a comprehensive digital operations program across its sites. The company is accelerating its digitalisation efforts by deploying technologies to transform operations and leapfrog to the next level of exploration and production.
