Ross Offshore acquires 60% of Network Scenario
Ross Offshore today announced acquisition of 60% in the IT Company, Network Scenario. The new company will be integrated in Ross Offshore as a separate business unit and will be named Ross Netscenario.
Mr. Stian Brekke will be CEO of Ross Netscenario.
Ross Offshore has, for several years used Network Scenario as a
provider of IT services in operation, hardware deliveries,
counseling and development. The two companies have in
collaboration, developed several innovative solutions including
visualization and seamless remote operation for complex
applications, targeting the oil and gas industry. This cooperation
has resulted in what the companies see as great opportunities
working even closer together, and to complement the established
environment that exists in this area today.
Network Scenario' experience in developing specialized and
innovative solutions, combined with Ross Offshores broad expertise
in exploration, reservoir engineering, production, HSE and
Logistics, will provide synergies that will lift both
"We want through this, to present more complete solutions that
lead to increased efficiency and flexibility, and hence reduced
cost for our clients. Network Scenario will be a catalyst with
their expertise in what surrounds us and our customers every day -
IT is and will be integrated in what we and our customers are
doing. Network Scenario's ability to innovate and develop, combined
with Ross Offshores expertise in oil and gas gives us a skills
increase, which we believe will lift both Ross and Network Scenario
further from the position companies have today "
says Jørgen Jørgensen, CEO Ross Offshore.
The integration process as business unit in Ross Offshore is
already underway, and operations will continue as normal. Based on
the cooperation, new and exiting solutions will be presented to the
market in the future. The visualization tool GeologiQ will, along
with other products, be launched in 2015.
