Statoil, Kongsberg, IBM and DNV $25m environmental monitoring system

Friday, December 16, 2011

Kongsberg, IBM and DNV have announced plans to develop a real time environmental monitoring system for Statoil Research and Development Center in Trondheim.

The purpose of the project is to demonstrate solutions for continuous environmental monitoring of operations in sensitive areas covering all phases of an offshore operation.

The project budget is 150 MNOK ($25m), including the cost of Statoil's project work and cash contribution.

The contract is for 3 years, to finish with a solution ready for pilot implementation.

Kongsberg Oil and Gas Technologies is playing a leading role in the project.

Kongsberg Maritime Subsea will provide sensor and communication technologies; IBM will provide information integration and business analytics; and DNV will provide marine environmental analytics and risk management advice.

'Kongsberg considers this project as an important step in its long-term strategy in developing integrated, continuous environmental monitoring systems to meet a growing demand for early detection and quicker response related environmental impact from offshore oil and gas activities', says Even Aas, Executive Vice President of Kongsberg.
