Aberdeen-based Return To Scene Limited has won new North Sea oil operator Chrysaor as a client for  its award winning visualisation software, R2S. 

Chrysaor will gain access to photographic models of the Everest, Lomond and Armada assets which it acquired from Shell in a £3.8 billiion deal, which made Chrysaor the biggest independent operator in the North Sea.

The R2S models enable users to virtually walk around the assets, review and add data from diverse sources and information systems, and plan for upcoming projects all from the comfort of the office.

By integrating diverse and often complex data, R2S provides teams with secure and reliable access to real-time knowledge, 24 hours a day.

Ruth Christie, Business Development Director at Return To Scene, explained: “Having access to the R2S software and photographic models at this early stage in Chrysaor’s ownership of Everest, Lomond and Armada will enable rapid familiarisation with the assets acquired, and aid understanding of the requirements of its operation.

“It will also allow Chrysaor to operate with efficiency, reduced risk and reduced costs while maintaining all asset-related data in a logical and central location.”

Meanwhile, Shell pumped up its third-quarter profits by 47% this year to $4.1 billion compared to $2.8 billion in the same period in 2016.

Oil and gas production was 3.657 million barrels of oil equivalent per day – up 2% – at an average Brent crude price of $52-barrel.
