KOC Project to implement GIS System for map charting
Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) is enhancing the quality and accuracy of the data used for daily planning to support production operations and the decision-making process for the implementation of current and future projects.
This was done by contracting with one of the international companies specialized in this field. This project, for the first time since its inception, helped to possess three-dimensional maps of all terrain of the oil fields, and capture high-quality aerial photographs with an accuracy of 10 centimeters. The project aims to integrate with Geographic Information System (GIS) used for operations.
The project also aims to apply modern technologies for the development and marketing of information and materials management. Digital images resulting from aerial surveys are used to update the company’s data and to work in remote and rugged areas and inaccessible sites due to their danger without the need to expose individuals to risks.
In addition, the data allows high-resolution images, which are monitored for new details of all services and facilities of the company, and the plans are updated.
