Shell Deepwater Services Implements HDI

May 9, 2002

Shell Deepwater Services, a division of Shell International Exploration and Production Inc., has contracted with NHDS for the delivery of an HDI-based knowledge management solution for communicating high volumes of vital information over high- and low-bandwidth networks found on offshore drilling rigs. After a 16-month trial period, Shell is formally installing the software on its deepwater rigs around the globe. The patented HDI (High Definition Information(TM)) technology enables offshore rigs to send and receive information rapidly and reliably, perform complex calculations, and display daily drilling data (including actual and projected costs, as well as depth and trouble time), lessons learned, best practices, and health and safety alerts. From rigs or land-based offices, the highly responsive HDI software enables engineers to monitor the drilling progress of a single rig or compare the performance of multiple rigs in a region, as well as capture, share, and retrieve knowledge for solving problems, minimizing drilling costs, and avoiding mishaps.
