Niger Delta Petroleum Resources (NDPR), a Nigerian independent oil and gas company, has selected Hiber’s HiberHilo satellite-powered, remote well-monitoring solution to deliver real-time production data from wells scattered across the oil-rich Niger Delta region
NDPR is a subsidiary of Niger Delta Exploration & Production, a publicly owned company established as an investment vehicle for Nigerians to participate in the country’s foremost income generator, the oil and gas sector.
In one of the first applications of this technology in Nigeria, the deal signed with Hiber will see NDPR install the HiberHilo solution on several onshore wells. This industry-proven solution digitises well monitoring using low-cost, low-power satellite connectivity to gather and deliver performance and safety data from wells in remote, off-grid locations.
HiberHilo will enable NDPR to take a data-driven, digital-first approach to remote well monitoring, providing insights to optimise well performance, reduce exposure of operations personnel, and lower operational costs.
“We are delighted to partner with Niger Delta Petroleum Resources to bring the latest well-monitoring technology to Nigeria and help improve the efficiency and safety of their field activities,” said Hiber’s CEO, Roel Jansen. “HiberHilo’s ability to deliver operational insights 24/7, reliably and at a low cost from wells located anywhere in the world, is making data-driven well-monitoring accessible and affordable—and with a compelling ROI. Oil producers that implement HiberHilo are leading the way when it comes to innovation and can expect to see a 10x return on their investment in terms of cost savings.”
Ebenezer Ageh, chief technical officer at Niger Delta Exploration & Production, is pleased with the project’s progress to date. “We chose HiberHilo to reduce our operational costs and crew safety by minimising site commutes, improving our early detection of well safety issues, and increase production uptime. We are keen to implement the HiberHilo solution and see its benefits,” he said.
