• For the past 15 years, the World Oil Awards have recognized the companies, products and people that are defining the oil and gas industry. The 2016 awards were held on Oct. 13, and the theme of “Rising to the Challenge: Innovative Technologies” focused on the upstream energy segment’s leading technologies and services. The competition, which takes place across 18 major categories that encompass the full breadth of the upstream industry, saw a record number of entries this year.

    NOV is proud to have received the “Best Data Management & Application Solution” award for the BlackStream™ along-string measurement (ASM) tool – a collar-based downhole drilling dynamics measurement tool that provides streaming visualization of downhole data. Most recently, Total E&P Norge AS redeployed BlackStream ASM tools in the North Sea as part of a major automation project. A full profile of the tool will be featured in a special section of the November issue of World Oil.

    Award finalists also included several other NOV technologies, including the multiple-opening circulation sub (MOCS) second generation design; IntelliServ™ second generation wired drillpipe; Tektonic™ drill bit platform; AQUA-VES™ offshore water treatment system; optimized saltwater disposal facility; and fifth generation low-force shear ram (LFS-5).
