Chinese Oil Company Chooses Kongsberg Drilling Software
Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies (KOGT) signed a significant software contract with Chinese National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) to deliver the class-leading SiteCom real-time drilling information solution to six regional centers.
The contract with CNOOC is a result of KOGT’s strategic decision to invest in the rapidly growing Chinese market and was won with support from KOGT local partner, Chinese Automation, in Beijing.
Kongsberg says SiteCom facilitates safer, faster and better-informed drilling decisions by integrating real-time data, historical data, reports, files and communication from all sources on the rig and makes them available to a wider community of professionals and stakeholders at the company offices or in other remote locations. All this is done through a single, fast and user-friendly web-based interface.
The CNOOC SiteCom contract delivery starts in May 2013 and is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
