Offshore operations are often managed manually and can be especially complex around busy, congested oil and gas installations. Workflows and operations can greatly benefit from proactive use of intelligent, automated software such as the Marlin solution from ION. ION’s Marlin project is to be undertaken by a wholly owned subsidiary, Concept Systems Ltd. (CSL), an Edinburgh-based software provider developing real-time navigation and data management solutions for the seismic industry.
CSL will develop an innovative marine management system that combines temporal project planning with 3D spatial situational awareness across diverse activities to support increased operational efficiency, safer operations, and reduced expenditure across oil and gas marine support operations. The Marlin project expands CSL’s market from the seismic sector into a broader range of exploration and production operations and potentially also beyond the oil and gas sector.
Marlin technology currently exists in a form that can be delivered via a service model. This new project will transform the Marlin solution into a scalable software product that will deliver value across a wide range of oil and gas activities, from use in a single project to an enterprise-wide solution for all assets in a company’s portfolio.
