Hiber signs deal with Shell to roll out remote IoT monitoring of wells

Hiber, an industrial IoT as-a-service startup, announced that it has signed an agreement with Shell to provide well integrity monitoring solutions globally.

The global framework agreement allows all Shell entities and subsidiaries to use the HiberHilo product across the world. Launched in October 2020, HiberHilo is an end-to-end IoT solution that makes well monitoring more data-driven and safe. 

Based on satellite technology, the solution lets oil and gas companies measure real-time well temperature and pressure on unconnected wells in remote and offshore locations. It has already been installed at Shell operations in the North Sea.

Shell aims to use HiberHilo to reduce the amount of travel to and from wells in remote locations. The solution also allows the company to get more data on their well performance and to monitor well integrity issues more effectively, thereby improving the safety of remote and offshore wells.

“After testing HiberHilo, the opportunity was clear,” says Ian Taylor, global principal technical expert for well integrity at Shell. Operations in South-east Asia, the Middle East, and Africa are considering HiberHilo.

“HiberHilo is a simple solution to help oil and gas companies improve safety, optimise operations, and reduce their environmental footprint,” says Coen Jansen, Hiber chief strategy officer. “We’re thrilled to be working with Shell toward a technologically cleaner future. Hiber’s mission is connecting everything everywhere to deliver productivity and sustainability in global industrial IoT.”

Hiber, founded in 2016 in the Netherlands, designs, builds and operates end to end solutions for the Internet of Things, focused on industrial uses such as well integrity or heavy equipment monitoring. The company, which launched the global IoT satellite network, recently secured €26 million in EU and private investment.
