KONGSBERG, Norway – Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies AS (KOGT) has delivered a new real-time well-monitoring and early warning system to support well construction.

As part of the SiteCom Well Advisor software suite, the new technology is a result of a strategic collaboration with BP, which has been focusing on monitoring casing running operations.

“This is an excellent example of strategic collaboration to develop technology supporting new ways to operate,” said Pal Helsing, president and CEO of Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies. “It is gratifying to see that the technology has been successfully developed and deployed at such a fast pace.”

SiteCom Well Advisor organizes information into a standard format on dashboard-like screens to facilitate sharing of information and collaboration during well operations, says Kongsberg.

The consoles create an early warning system for users, alerting them to potential issues that may arise with the well by employing a system that tracks the status of operations and equipment.
