AMSTERDAM, Netherlands—June 29, 2022:
Santos, one of the largest oil and gas producers in Australia and the largest oil and gas producer and exporter of Papua New Guinea (PNG), has selected Hiber’s HiberHilo satellite-powered remote well-monitoring solution to ensure the safety and environmental security of numerous oil and gas wells in PNG.
“We are delighted that Santos has selected HiberHilo to improve the sustainability and safety of their well monitoring activities,” said Hiber CEO Roel Jansen. “Our ability to offer this solution anywhere in the world at low cost and minimal installation complexity makes it economically feasible for operators to connect their most remote wells and gain valuable insights, 24/7. Oil producers that implement HiberHilo are seeing a 10x return on their investment in terms of cost savings.”
Santos’s vast production portfolio includes some of the remotest operations in the world. The interior of PNG is mountainous, heavily forested, and sparsely populated. There is virtually no infrastructure, few roads, and extremely limited communications and power infrastructure.
