Operational Decision Support

Petroleum operations are complex and multidisciplinary requiring decision-makers to draw upon a wealth of disparate sources and types of information.

Acquiring the right information and placing it in the right context for decision making is a demanding task. SensE provides operational decision support to our clients by drawing on our extensive background from a large number of projects, our national and international network, our experience with and understanding of data sets, methods and approaches, as well as our experience in design and application of photographic mapping within Geographical Information Systems.

Drawing on experiences in operational decision support, including development of GIS and web based decision support systems and data sets, organisation and implementation of oil spill response exercises and workshops, and participation in oil spill operations, SensE is today a leading provider of operational decision support services on the Norwegian continental shelf.
