Willbros has partnered with Google for an Oil and Gas Innovation Summit to highlight technologies in the energy industry.
At the event on 22 August this year, Google and Willbros demonstrated some of these technologies.
Willbros and Google hosted more than 100 industry professionals, media, and investors at the event.
The Summit took place at the Dream Hotel in New York City and showcased their revolutionary, cloud-based information system, Integra-Link™.
Using Google’s mapping technology, Willbros developed the system to help utility companies manage, maintain and map their infrastructures – and meet governmental regulations.
The technology is able to collect, organise, visualise, verify and analyse field data in real-time, anywhere around the world.
Keynote speaker and Willbros President of Engineering and Technology, Ed Wiegele, said, “Federal and state regulators require operators to have data readily available. Integra-Link provides that in an efficient information system. If there’s an emergency, operators can respond quickly. If there are deficiencies in the pipeline system, they can be corrected in a timely manner.”
Willbros Senior Product Manager, Colby Smith, expresses that the technology developed by Willbros and Google, “…not only enhances utility reliability, but increases the public’s confidence in North America’s energy infrastructure.” Willbros and Google will hold multiple Innovation Summits in key service areas across the United States offering investors, potential clients and analyst the opportunity to experience interactive demonstrations of their partnered technology.
