Embracing Innovative Technology Applications to Improve Our Business Results
We use and often adapt new science and technologies for our businesses and our clients and then drive them across our businesses. A dedicated team tracks, tests and recommends technologies that make our businesses safer, smarter and more efficient, providing our worldwide Exploration and Production and Marketing and Refining operations access to some of the industry's most advanced tools. We are an industry leader in the acquisition and processing of seismic imaging and also rely on a full menu of other technologies including operational modeling and simulation, optimization, asset performance prediction, and data mining and portfolio management. These applications of technology are leading to improvements in: production volumes, cost control, return on capital employed and operational efficiency.
A Leader in Analysis and Data Processing
Hess led the industry in the application of seismic data analysis and processing. We were the first to use surface seismic technology in 1943 and 25 years ago, the first to link computers to our own mainframes to process seismic data.
Deepwater Expertise Boosts Production
Our extensive technical capabilities have given us great access and helped us develop many complex fields. We demonstrate industry-leading technical focus by leveraging equipment and technology to boost production rates.
Getting the Most from Our Assets
We are adopting advanced technologies, applying new operating procedures and leveraging our success in shale oil and gas production in the U.S. across our other assets. Wise use of technology helps us produce more oil at lower cost.
