Return To Scene Limited, a SeaEnergy subsidiary, has announced that it has been awarded a contract for provision of an R2S visual asset management system by Mexican national oil company Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX), following a competitive public international tender process.
The contract value to Return To Scene is estimated at US$ 1 million.
Return To Scene’s innovative R2S visual asset management system provides high definition 360o spherical photography – photographically capturing offshore oil and gas assets and providing the user with a desktop visual, interactive, walk around.
Together with local partner, Petrotécnica S.A. DE C.V. (to whom Return To Scene was contracted earlier this year to capture a new build drilling platform prior to float-out), Return To Scene will complete the spherical photographic capture of the Ku-S Central Processing Installation and its bridge-linked satellites, in the Ku-Maloob-Zaap oilfield located in the Bay of Campeche, Gulf of Mexico. The capturing of these images and their integration into the R2S visual management system will be completed by Q4 2014.
The benefits of R2S for operating companies have been recognised at all phases of project life cycle, and to date the system has been used by 14 operators in the UK Continental Shelf and US Gulf of Mexico, including BP, Chevron, Total and ConocoPhillips, on a diverse range of projects.
Bob Donnelly, Director of Business Development for the SeaEnergy Group commented that:
“We are at a key stage in the development of the SeaEnergy Group and this is a very exciting time for us as we continue to grow our international presence. We are delighted that the benefits of our technology and the efficiencies it allows for end users have been recognised by PEMEX. We look forward to continuing to cement and grow this relationship with PEMEX and our local partner, Petrotécnica.”
“Return To Scene is setting the global benchmark for asset visualisation – providing our clients with a service that improves operational safety, reduces OPEX and travel risk exposure.”
Marcelo Dorantes, Chief Executive of Petrotécnica added that:
“Petrotécnica is proud to have represented Return To Scene exclusively in Mexico since 2011 and after 3 years of hard work we are delighted to reach this milestone. Petrotécnica will add value to the R2S Visual Asset Management System by integrating new systems.
“As energy reform in the Oil & Gas Industry continues to evolve and accelerates new business opportunities in the region, we are enthusiastic for the future of this key relationship with Return To Scene. We will continue to work to establish R2S as an institutional system for the whole of PEMEX, creating efficiencies across the business improving safety, reliability and asset integrity.”
