Kongsberg Buys Sense Intellifield

Thursday, December 28, 2006
Kongsberg Maritime has acquired 100-percent of the technology enterprise Sense Intellifield AS for approx. MNOK 290 on a debt-free basis. The purchase price may increase, depending on the company`s profit trend in 2007 and 2008. Sense Intellifield delivers products and services in the field of Integrated Operations, or e-field, for the international oil and gas market. The company is engaged in the development, marketing and sale of highly advanced products, systems and solutions for real-time remote operation of drilling operations and production optimization. Among other products, the company has developed software to retrieve, transmit, store and display data about well and drilling services on rigs. In tandem with the acquisition of Fantoft Process Technologies earlier this year and Kongsberg Maritime`s own oil and gas activities, the acquisition of Sense Intellifield will reinforce Kongsberg Maritime`s position in the international oil and gas industry.

Sense Intellifield has seen strong growth since the company was founded in June 2003, and its sales in 2006 came to approx. MNOK 115. With about 70 employees at its offices in Stavanger, Kristiansand, Oslo, Trondheim and Houston, the company has established relations with several of the world`s leading oil and gas companies.
