Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies announces SiteCom real-time drilling software chosen for key BP well project

Thursday, Nov 08, 2012

BP and Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies (KONGSBERG), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Gruppen ASA, have reached an agreement to develop a suite of decision-support consoles that will present key information to well construction decision makers. The development project is a major part of BP’s multi-million dollar investment in the BP Well Advisor program.

The BP Well Advisor program aims to integrate the analysis and presentation of real-time data with applicable practices and expertise to provide the right information in the right place at the right time; supporting operational decision-making through all phases of the well-construction lifecycle.

The new consoles will be based on KONGSBERG’s Discovery Web platform, which is part of the SiteCom suite of software. The development is expected to deliver four to six new consoles – or ‘dashboards’ – each year of the three year agreement. BP and KONGSBERG are working together to optimize training and support for the solution as it is rolled-out.

“As an integral part of the BP Well Advisor team, KONGSBERG and BP have worked together closely developing BP Well Advisor from concept to successful implementation in the field” says VP Technology BP GWO Fereidoun Abbassian

“This is a very challenging and important project for KONGSBERG” says VP Drilling Software, Rune Skarbø, “and we have strengthened our development department significantly to support this project.”
