A Chevron presentation in Aberdeen last month highlighted real time, onshore/offshore collaboration technology. The three way communications and visualization showcase offered a live link between Aberdeen, London and Stavanger using technology from Iocom and Impact Marcom. Chevron has been using Iocom’s audio, video, and data communications technology since 2007 to keep onshore base operations in constant collaboration with field engineers, geophysicists and drill ships. Systems integrator Impact Marcom described how the audio-visual industry has evolved from simple video conferencing to ‘true collaboration capability.’
At the SPE Intelligent Energy event in Amsterdam earlier this year, BP also demonstrated its use of Iocom systems to connect their global command centers and their offshore rigs with a live link to both its command center in Azerbaijan and an offshore rig in the Caspian. Iocom operates over a variety of networks using scalable bandwidth to optimize connectivity to remote locations.
