We are seeking new ways to apply recent advances in robotics, automation and AI to the oil and gas sector.
We’re looking to massively improve operational safety and efficiency, which will translate to lower carbon emissions (as less is wasted operationally) and a reduction in the risks to human life and the environment (through the removal of human error and improved monitoring of abandoned well sites).
We are seeking technologies that:
– Enhance safety in the oil industry: remote detection of faults, corrosion, leaks. Automated advanced warning systems. Technologies that reduce human contact with the high risk processes;
– Improve efficiency, particularly with respect to energy across the ecosystem;
– Allow the automation of the decommission process, of both ageing rigs and in the design of new platforms.
