Savi Technology, a Lockheed Martin company, has formed an oil and gas strategic alliance with Shipcom Wireless and KBR Wireless, who are offering a complete software solution that links with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to instantly track and manage supplies transported between onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities worldwide. By automating visibility, asset and shipment management in upstream operations, this newly tailored solution can cut costs and improve performance, efficiency, security and regulatory compliance.

            The Savi SmartChain® Enterprise Platform and Asset Management application underpin the alliance’s combined solution, which leverages real-time data from Savi’s active RFID tags and KBR’s passive RFID tags, which can be affixed to all kinds of oil and gas assets.

            “Already making a difference in other industries, the Savi SmartChain suite now can go to work with our partners to improve operational performance in the global oil and gas sector,” said David Stephens, CEO of Savi Technology.

            “Our partnership with Savi and KBR Wireless unifies the most effective software and hardware technology platforms within the energy sector to address critical business needs of the industry,” added Abeezar Tyebji, CEO of Shipcom Wireless.

            “At a time when it’s essential for the oil and gas industry to discover more operational efficiency, our partnership with Savi and Shipcom provides unprecedented visibility and control over inventory and assets across the oil and gas industry’s entire value chain,” said Konrad Konarski, VP of KBR Wireless and co-founder of the Oil & Gas RFID Solution Group, an educational group focused on broad supply chain issues.
