BENGALURU/NEW DELHI, INDIA: Honeywell announced that Cairn Oil & Gas, Vedanta Ltd, the largest private oil & gas exploration and production (E&P) company in India, has deployed Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software to improve decision-making, boost productivity, enhance efficiency and reduce manual paperwork, all while enabling Cairn’s workers to remotely operate their facilities.When Cairn piloted Honeywell’s solutions – which automated operator rounds and digitalised control room logbooks -- handovers between shifts happened 50 percent faster. Honeywell Forge, which is available on a cloud platform for quick and easy workflow and system maintenance configuration, is now enabling Cairn to accelerate digitalization and maintain production with a reduced staff.

Cairn Oil & Gas is one of the first companies in the upstream industry to implement a comprehensive digital operations program across its sites.“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.

The digitalization of manual processes is helping Cairn achieve growth through the application of insights in operations across regions.”

Honeywell Forge is enabling Cairn Oil & Gas industrial workers to remotely operate their plants while ensuring business continuity with the 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.

By adopting digitalisation in the workflow process, exploration and production, our customers have witnessed significant operational improvements.
