A Recap on Rio

After its phenomenal success hosting the best in the world of futbol (soccer for those of us in Texas), Rio de Janeiro turned its attention to the oil and gas companies at the heart of Brazil’s economy at the recent Rio Oil & Gas Show. Geoforce do Brasil was one of hundreds of companies from over twenty-seven countries that participated in this bi-annual event which brings together all of the major participants in the Campos and Santos Basin plays for four days of discussion, education and networking in the city that will bring the world together again in 2016 as it hosts the Summer Olympics. As we hear globally, one of the prevailing themes of the show was the necessity for operational excellence as these companies strive to keep up with the break-neck pace of current projects, while enabling the full development of the pre-salt opportunity off the Brazilian coast. Geoforce do Brasil has been at the heart of this conversation with our customers and prospects as they seek to ensure that the right equipment is on-site with all compliance requirements confirmed, in addition to maintaining the integrity of the business transaction governing its use. This is no easy task as business terms are agreed upon in offices but executed remotely in the harsh offshore environment by employees concerned with exploration; not accounting for the location of a tool, or the billing for its use. Geoforce preserves the integrity of the business transactions that our customers make with their customers and suppliers, while enabling them to automatically manage the certifications of their assets, keeping them in compliance with Brazil’s rules and regulations for the industry. At the heart of this solution is the world’s first IECEx/ATEX Zone 0-rated GPS tracking device, the Geoforce GT1, which enables our customers to concentrate on their core mission—finding and developing Oil & Gas prospects! We look forward to the next world-class Rio Oil & Gas Show just as world-class athletes look forward to coming to Rio in 2016!
