Bob Kessler, Oceaneering's Maritime Program Manager, sat down with Gibraltar Shipping to discuss everything from AIS vessel tracking technology to subsea oil and gas operations:
Please talk to us about your role and main responsibilities at Oceaneering:
As Program Manager for Maritime Global Data Solutions at Oceaneering International, I am responsible for the growth and delivery of our expanding solutions portfolio. This includes our Oceaneering PortVision 360 service for maritime intelligence, our Asset Monitoring Intelligence Center (AMIC) for remote monitoring to support asset protection and optimisation, and our Oceaneering TerminalSmart platform for liquid terminal logistics management. Another related offering is our Oceaneering Media Vault (OMV) offering, which solves the challenge of storing high volumes of archived media from remote operations –both onshore and offshore.
In your view, what is Oceaneering's competitive advantage in the industry?
From the perspective of the Global Data Solutions group that I represent, Oceaneering offers a unique combination of products and capabilities that are increasingly important for oil and gas operations upstream, midstream, and downstream, as well as a broader set of both wet and dry bulk cargo shipping operations.
