Case Study: E.ON Ruhrgas

In readying for its first drilling operations, E.ON Ruhrgas turned to Cyviz to create the collaborative work environments that would connect its experts from all over the organization.

E.ON Ruhrgas has always been an early adopter of new collaboration technologies, but the company nonetheless experienced a major upward shift when they incorporated the Cyviz F204 into their toolbox.

Case Study Overview

A partner on the Norwegian oil and gas fields since 2003, German energy company E.ON Ruhrgas assumed operatorship of two North Sea drilling rigs in May 2011. Though they relocated some key personnel from the organization at large, E.ON Ruhrgas still needed a way to draw upon the expertise of its UK entity which had hands-on experience from drilling operations.

E.ON Ruhrgas has always been an early adopter of new collaboration technologies, but the company nonetheless experienced a major upward shift when they incorporated the Cyviz F204 into their toolbox.

An established, worldwide leader in creating collaborative work environments for the energy industries, Cyviz created its F-series to meet the very requirements of companies like E.ON Ruhrgas: allowing real time partnering on geological applications while simultaneously video conferencing and sharing data, all in the highest resolution. This innovative technology is defined by its ease-of-use: user-specific pre-sets that are recalled at the tap of a screen, sharing across locations in dual HD, as well as remote sharing of mouse and keyboard control.

With the F204 now in place in Essen, Stavanger, London and Aberdeen, Cyviz has introduced to E.ON Ruhrgas a leaner workflow between its far-flung experts. The company has since maximized the return on its initial investment by expanding the use of the F204 throughout the organization. Examples of uses include

  • Work on high resolution geo applications both locally and remotely
  • Emergency preparedness for operations
  • License meetings towards partners (RC, TC, MC)
  • Peer reviews towards UK and Germany (decisions related to investments and license applications), and management meetings.

 

E.ON Ruhrgas remains at the forefront in applying innovative technologies to achieve the most efficient and effective collaborative work environments. Plainly put by Svend Erik Petterson, General Manager of Exploration, “The user experience provided by Cyviz has been essential in this process.”
