… New company, Liquid Robotics Oil & Gas, will be headquartered in Houston,TX and will initially provide Wave Glider platforms for surveillance; seep/spill detection; and communications gateway services.
… Wave Gliders can operate offshore for up to a year without requiring a crew, fuel or a dedicated support vessel.
… “By teaming with Schlumberger, we can greatly accelerate the availability and worldwide deployment of innovative oil and gas solutions,” said Bill Vass, Liquid Robotics’ CEO. “We are extremely excited about the new capabilities the unique Wave Glider platform will bring to offshore exploration and production—particularly in the areas of seismic, subsea and environmental monitoring,” said Ashok Belani, Schlumberger‘s CTO.
