Cooperation among key industry players – drilling contractors, equipment manufacturers and operators – is necessary to realize innovation and new technologies, Joop Roodenburg, CEO of Huisman, stated. “We can do this if we come together at the beginning. Keeping together is progress, and working together is success,” he stated in his keynote presentation at the 2013 ART Conference last week in Stavanger, Norway. In an exclusive video interview, Mr Roodenburg discusses Huisman’s approach to innovation and its automated pipe-handling system, which will be tested on a fully automated rig in Q2 2014.
