Steve Wisely, senior vice president, i-Tech Services said: “This is an exciting partnership that will allow us to uncover the many future benefits of digitalisation throughout the life of the field. We look forward to collaborating with Leidos to deliver a technology development plan that utilises big data, digitalisation and artificial intelligence to allow clients to harvest greater insight for early decision making ensuring focussed and cost effective management of the field by reducing OPEX.
“The partnership has already identified and initiated the first two development phases, which will see a focus on data acquisition, processing, analytical insight and data visualisation of i-Tech Services’ integrity, inspection and survey services.”
Neil Walton, VP and managing director, Civil, Defence and Health, Leidos UK said: “The Oil & Gas sector is under significant pressure to optimise production and deliver services as efficiently as possible and this is a clear example of how Leidos can help transform performance by releasing the value held in data to deliver improved insight for i-Tech Services.”
