Integrated Operations in the High North (IOHN, IO High North or IO in the High North) is a unique collaboration project that during a four-year period starting May 2008 is working on designing, implementing and testing a Digital Platform for what in the Upstream Oil and Gas Industry is called the next or second generation of Integrated Operations.[1] The work on the Digital platform is focussed on capture, transfer and integration of Real-time data from the remote production installations to the decision makers. A risk evaluation across the whole chain is also included. The platform is based on open standards and enables a higher degree of interoperability. Requirements for the digital platform come from use cases defined within the Drilling and Completion, Reservoir and Production and Operations and Maintenance domains. The platform will subsequently be demonstrated through pilots within these three domains.[2]

This new platform is considered an important enabler for safe and sustainable operations in remote, vulnerable and hazardous areas such as the High North,[3][4][5][6] but the technology is clearly also applicable in more general applications.

The IOHN project consortium consists of 23 participants,[7] including operators, service providers, software vendors, technology providers, research institutions and universities. In addition, the Norwegian Defence Force is working with the project to resolve common infrastructural and interoperability challenges.[2]

The project is managed by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).[8] Nils Sandsmark was the project manager during the initiation and start-up phase. Frédéric Verhelst took over as project manager from the beginning of 2009.[9]

Financing comes from the participants and the Research Council of Norway (RCN) for parts of the project (GOICT[10] and AutoConRig[11][12]).
