StormGeo featured their OceanWatch and SpillWatch at OI 2016. StormGeo’s OceanWatch provides continuous, real-time, site-specific monitoring and forecasting of ocean conditions and currents, along with 24/7 expert assistance and emergency support. Using OceanWatch helps StormGeo’s customers make knowledge-based decisions to improve safety and control costs while protecting our environment. OceanWatch helps them ensure that they have taken all possible environmental concerns into account, not only in offshore sub-sea areas, but also near-shore, where sensitive ecosystems and recreational areas may demand additional consideration.

SpillWatch uses highly reliable models, simulation tools and sensors to track and predict the dispersion and effects of accidental oil spills. The oil spill trajectory model is developed in cooperation with SINTEF and based on the OSCAR model. Users can choose between different scenarios based on oil type, surface or subsea blow out at different rates.

Kent Zehetner, CEO of StormGeo explained, “The OceanWatch service fits well with StormGeo’s goal to provide our customers with ‘one address’ for access to the best available information on the physical environment during both planning and operations.” Zehetner continues, “As the oil and gas business is moving into more environmentally sensitive areas, the need for better understanding and control within the physical environment, including currents, is increasing, and StormGeo will continue to develop innovative and user-friendly solutions to help our customers make knowledge-based decisions.”

This featured exhibit was used by/of use to predominantly by the offshore oil & gas industry providing crisis teams with the necessary information to make informed and correct decisions on how to cope with an unexpected spill. The benefits are felt through the entire organisation from drilling teams to operations and the HSE teams to name a few.

They ran demonstrations of their weather web portal, and participants had the opportunity to see a live weather forecast and learn how they can save cost and improve performance for their business operations. These services were of use to operations, project teams, aviation departments, diving and drilling teams.

The StormGeo weather portal can also be used for planning weather sensitive operations and the longer range traffic light forecasts are ideally suited for this type of planning. The asset overviews are also a critical support tool for everyone involved in daily operations and engineering works.

Their exhibits have relevance for those attending the Green Shipping; Handling Big Data; Hydrography, Geophysics and Geotechnics; Marine Renewables; Ocean Observing Systems: Marine Technology and Services Sector Role in the Blue Economy; and Oil & Gas: What’s next for Ageing Offshore Assets? Conference streams.
