Making waves with data

It is incredible how our world is changing. Game-changing innovation is already impacting every aspect of our lives. For me, that means helping our clients maximise the value of their data. My aim is to save them money and time, and realise their digital potential.


Planning for uncertainty

“To be honest, looking at things right now, I haven’t got the foggiest idea what is going to happen in the coming weeks…”


R2S: Decommissioning learning curve

Perhaps it’s the overtly political nature of it, the multiplicity of stakeholders, the need for problem-solving or the sheer finality of it, but offshore decommissioning has been an area of interest to me since I first joined Return To Scene in 2013.

North Sea

ENGenious? Yes we are

It’s fair to say I’ve been looking forward to September’s SPE ENGenious symposium for a while now. As an event focused specifically on how innovation will drive, define and change the exploration and production industry, it was an easy decision when it came to planning the introduction of one of our latest developments, R2S AR to the market.

Piper Alpha

Piper Alpha: Industry embraces challenges, R2S says

In the three decades that have passed since Piper Alpha this industry has changed exponentially: the disaster driving an unprecedented pace and quality of change in operational safety for offshore oil and gas.

Augmented Reality – digitally enabling the workforce

Studies continually publish findings on the “value add” that immersive technologies are delivering in everything from decision making to cost reduction and increasing productivity and, while momentum continues to build across industry sectors, oil and gas is playing catch up.

Energy Technology

Maintaining positives in 2018

As a business we’re a glass half full kind of place, a collective mindset that I believe has helped sustain us over recent years and ensured the continued commitment to the R&D behind our technology and the evolution of our team in the face of adverse market conditions.


R2S: Downturn spurs digital disruption

I have very much enjoyed a series of stories and quotes used in presentations and discussions in recent months, delivered to an audience today, for which there is as much relevance as when they were first written in the early 1970s.


Buy data once, use it often, R2S says

This month, I wanted to take a slightly different approach to our column and share my thoughts and highlight trends relating to one area of concern that is continually reiterated to me in my day to day role, here at Return To Scene.


Return To Sea to complete BP Atlantis work by June

Return To Scene (R2S) is expected to complete its photographic capture of BP's Atlantis facility in the Gulf of Mexico during the second quarter of this year. The contract, worth US $450,000, falls under a global agreement between R2S - a subsidiary of SeaEnergy - and BP which has been in place since 2013.
