Sense Intellifield, acquired by Kongsberg Maritime in January 2007 became Kongsberg Intellifield AS, as of 30th April 2007. The company will play an important part in Kongsberg Maritime's commitment to developing new technology solutions for Integrated Operations in the oil & gas industry.
"As part of Kongsberg Maritime we will further strengthen our position as the leading independent technology supplier within e-field and Integrated Operations," comments Børge R. Kolstad, CEO, Kongsberg Intellifield. "As part of Kongsberg Maritime we will continue to provide our advanced solutions in addition to investing in new technology."
Kongsberg Intellifield has delivered more than 150 oilfield decision rooms globally, with over 1500 people using the solutions daily. The company provides work process consulting, design & engineering and implementation of decision environments, data management software tools, visualization software tools, and other applications that are fundamental to Integrated Operations environments.

Sense Intellifield, now Kongsberg Intellifield, has seen strong growth since the company was founded in June 2003, and its sales in 2006 came to approx. MNOK 115.

With the increasing complexity and focus on advanced processes, the technologies Kongsberg Maritime provide will assist operators in running the fields of the future efficiently and economically."
