BP, Kongsberg to develop drilling software

Offshore staff

KONGSBERG, Norway – BP and Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies have agreed to develop a suite of decision-support consoles that will present key information to well construction decision makers. The development project is a major part of BP’s multi-million dollar investment in the BP Well Advisor program.

The program aims to integrate the analysis and presentation of real-time data with applicable practices and expertise to provide the right information in the right place at the right time; supporting operational decision-making through all phases of well construction.

The new consoles will be based on Kongsberg’s Discovery Web platform, which is part of the SiteCom suite of software. The development is expected to deliver four to six new consoles – or “dashboards” – each year of the three-year agreement.
