IDS and Kongsberg Digital Sign Cooperation Agreement

9th March 2017
IDS are proud to announce that it has signed a cooperation agreement with Kongsberg Digital (KDI). This new partnership will bring together the KDI and IDS drilling and well construction solutions that are currently being offered to existing and new clients, with combined measured, processed, manual and metadata delivered in a cohesive and valuable manner.

IDS Director, Douwe Franssens, believes the cooperation agreement will allow a further expansion and integration of real-time and reporting data: “Traditionally these data sets have been in silos and operated in isolation, but there are many use cases where the convergence of traditional reporting data and right-time analytics from IDS coupled with Kongsberg’s SiteCom solution delivers a greatly enhanced level of decision support during planning, operation and after action reviews.”

KDI’s VP of Drilling & Wells, Atle Høgberg, says “This recent extension of IDS´s reporting and analytics capabilities to the SiteCom ecosystem of partners on the Kongsberg digital platform will provide significant improvements for all clients in search of a better understanding of operational efficiencies and performance improvement opportunities, both at macro-scale and while drilling. As we continue adding more partners and capabilities to our platform, our growing client base will see increasing opportunities to derive value from being able to capture, utilize and act on data-driven workflows across the traditional tasks happening today.”
