MetraWeather will demonstrate its breakthrough products for the oil and gas sector at the 2014 APPEA (Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association) conference in Perth from 6–9 April.
“The APPEA conference is a central part of the Australasian oil and gas industry events calendar. Major players from around the region will be attending.
We’re looking forward to showing them what our forecasting can do for their operations,” said MetraWeather Chief Executive Peter Lennox.
MetraWeather is providing state-of-the-art customised forecasts to a liquefied natural gas port in Papua New Guinea to help increase safety and operational efficiency.
“These forecasts provide greater insights than the ones you read about in the paper or see on TV. Customers such as Anadarko, Esperance Ports, Exxon Mobil, Geraldton Port, Port Hedland, and Woodside take our forecasts to ensure their assets and operations are not impacted by unforeseen weather events,” said Lennox.
MetraWeather will be demonstrating its MetOceanView and MetConnect products at APPEA–solutions that can provide customised forecasts for any location on Earth.
The company has expanded its Australian customer base and recently started providing forecasts to Sydney Ports.
The services MetraWeather is providing include wind speed, direction and gusts as well as wave height, and swell and tide through its online, industry-specific MetOceanView software.
Sydney Ports will also have access to MetraWeather’s interactive under-keel clearance and berth safety forecasts, helping to plan not only for the safety of ships in the harbour, but also for those wanting to enter.
