Emerson and Repsol form strategic alliance

May 2019 News

Emerson and Repsol have announced a strategic alliance to deliver advanced subsurface geophysical technologies to significantly reduce the time to prospect and produce first oil. To achieve this critical industry goal, Emerson will work collaboratively with Repsol to implement and deploy advanced subsurface imaging technologies, with core technologies developed by Repsol as part of Kaleidoscope, its 10-year innovation project. These advances will be used by a broad range of the geoscience community within Repsol, and in all oil and gas companies that choose to license the technologies. The solution combines the latest in high-end visualisation, high-performance computing and cloud delivery.

These technologies have contributed to the exploration success ratio of Repsol, with special significance in settings of complex geology in countries like Brazil, Peru and Bolivia. The partnership, which includes joint investment in research and development, will enable Repsol and Emerson to produce commercially available software products for license to help other oil field operators and service companies.
