Wood Group has signed an extension to its collaborative agreement with Canadian technology company Librestream Technologies (Librestream) to continue its exclusive industry partnership, providing advanced digitally-enabled solutions for oil and gas customers.
The agreement, initially signed in November 2015, has been extended for a further 12 months and combines Wood Group’s industry domain knowledge with Librestream’s real-time mobile video collaboration digital technology.
Under the agreement, Wood Group and Librestream have developed a growing suite of innovative solutions for delivery excellence from desktop to worksite.
One such solution is Wood Group’s eXpert technology which has been successfully deployed on behalf of major operators on work sites in the UK, US, Canada and Middle East in the last six months. This technology connects specialists based onshore directly with the remote worksite, via real-time audio and visual display, to review issues and collaborate on a resolution.
The solution not only reduces time for problem solving and resulting implementation, but saves on costs associated with mobilisation and shutdown, at offshore and remote locations.
