OSLO, NORWAY, 30 JANUARY 2019

Pandion Energy has recently embarked on the process of digitalization of its subsurface capabilities through applying new digital solutions to geological and geophysical data. The objective is to drive innovation and enhance efficiency in the exploration for oil and gas on the NCS.

This work has been motivated by Kerogen Capital, the company’s financial backer, selecting Pandion Energy as their first pilot case for developing an advanced digital subsurface platform (KAI) as part of their wider investments into energy technology under Kerogen Digital Solutions. As part of this, Pandion Energy has partnered with Computas and Google and mobilized a dedicated team comprising machine learning, datascience and geoscience experts for its digitalization effort.

“We believe these partnerships will be very beneficial for all parties, sharing innovation and agility as two important drivers for our digital venture”, says Jan Christian Ellefsen, CEO of Pandion Energy.

Being the first non-operator partnering with Google on the NCS, he further states he believes Pandion Energy is an attractive partner recognized for it’s subsurface expertise and lean decision making processes, demonstrated by the Company’s rapid growth since inception. These are characteristics that will enable swift testing and implementation of new digital solutions. Being backed by Kerogen Capital represents further opportunities with regard to cooperation and sharing across the industry.

“Pandion has always had a holistic approach to our exploration activities. Having Kerogen to select us as their first pilot case for developing an advanced digital subsurface platform, also reflects on the potential in digitalization on the NCS”, adds Ellefsen.

Pandion Energy will be present at the “Digex 2019 – The Digital Subsurface” conference held at Gardermoen, Norway, Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st of January.
