Data capture and analysis for oil and gas

Our data capture and analysis consulting services help you to acquire, evaluate and analyse physical data relating to sites, reservoirs, wells, equipment and downstream assets. From well and pipeline system design to operational management, structural stability of your asset to multi-phase flow modelling of your subsea compressors, all rely on a proper data model.

Our data visualisation and management expertise can help you overcome the often challenging task, for those in the design and construction fields, of capturing data relating to complex or inaccessible structures. We help you to improve accuracy, predict consequences, reduce uncertainty and minimise operational and environmental disturbances; providing assurance that your assets and components are running and will continue to run at optimal performance.
