HOUSTON – DrillDocs proudly announces the installation of its CleanSight® AI computer vision camera on Italian oil company ENI’s deepwater rig, the SAIPEM Santorini. This groundbreaking achievement marks the industry's first-ever utilization of computer vision cameras on a shale shaker during offshore drilling operations, heralding a new era of enhanced drilling efficiency and safety.
Under the year-long contract, DrillDocs’ CleanSight® AI camera will be used on the rig for a 10-month period, followed by a two-month review of the technology’s performance and benefits. The contract between DrillDocs and ENI was signed in April 2023, marking DrillDoc’s first paid offshore trial. The cameras were installed aboard the SAIPEM Santorini on August 3, 2023, in the Gulf of Mexico.
"We appreciate ENI’s confidence in our technology and are proud to be working with an operator that leads the industry in innovation,” Calvin Holt, DrillDocs CEO, said.
DrillDocs has also been contracted by two other international drilling operators to deploy CleanSight® AI for paid trials on US land rigs. These trials are expected to begin by the end of 2023.
