Statoil has awarded Asker, Norway headquartered 4Subsea a contract for further development of its WellSpot cloud solution for wellhead data capture. A recent article in Computerworld Norway, translated on the 4Subsea website, reveals that WellSpot is used to capture a well’s operational history, which rigs have interacted with it and under which weather conditions. The tool allows Statoil to assess the loads that the well has been subjected to.
As a ‘non business critical’ system, WellSpot was considered a good candidate for migration from Statoil’s data center to the public Microsoft Azure cloud. 4Subsea claims a strong focus on utilization of cloud technology like Azure, Office 365 and Power BI. WellSpot is said to be one of Statoil’s first cloud solutions and has been in development since 2011. 4Subsea, a Viking Venture portfolio company was established in 2007. More from 4Subsea.
