Van Riel

Fugro’s Paul van Riel told Oil IT Journal, ‘This intelligent, web-enabled data storage solution falls midway between project data management solutions and heavyweight corporate data stores. We will be working to internationalize this primarily Canadian product which will be marketed as an efficient data management solution for small to midsize companies.’
