Kongsberg Digital and Keystone announced their plans to form a technology partnership that will enable real-time wells and planning data to be combined and contextualized, leading to optimized drilling operations. The partnership will see them combine both of their well application portfolios. Well data will be combined and contextualized to provide well plans using Keystone’s SmartHUB system.
“Kongsberg Digital’s partnership with Keystone will enable customers to develop more effective planning, execution and learnings in well operations. Together we will make data and insights easily available in real time for end users to use to make better decisions,” said Shane McArdle, CEO at Kongsberg Digital. “In the past, planning data and real time data for wells was stored in different silos and not combined. Our strategic partnership with Keystone will bring the context and verified actions from planning data to the real time data harnessed by Kongsberg Digital’s applications. The real-time data will bring actual numbers to the planning and execution phases of digital operation procedures, bringing value to our clients by providing a holistic overview of well operations, as well as verification of adherence to procedure.”
“Our collaboration with Kongsberg Digital is a perfect match between technologies already proven in the industry. Drilling engineers will finally be able to have a full picture of actual vs planned data, enabling dynamic use of all available data for real time operations optimization, and the continuous improvement of the planning of new wells,” said Jan Isaachsen, CEO of Keystone.
