The partnership will accelerate Flylogix’s transformation of remote operations and stand-off sensing, already working with companies including BP, Total and Chrysaor Flylogix lands strategic partnership with SeekOps. (Credit: Gerd Altmann from Pixabay) Flylogix, the full-service unmanned aviation company, has entered into a strategic partnership with SeekOps Inc. for offshore remote methane sensing and data interpretation in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).The partnership with SeekOps, which manufactures gas detection sensors to localize and quantify emissions – will enable offshore beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) emissions measurement surveys to be conducted safely and cost-effectively. This specific application comes at a time when energy companies are increasingly looking to monitor, assess and reduce emissions to meet regulatory requirements and pursue net-zero.The partnership will accelerate Flylogix’s transformation of remote operations and stand-off sensing, already working with companies including BP, Total and Chrysaor.Offshore methane emission measurement is extremely challenging, especially in environments such as the North Sea. Flylogix’s and SeekOps are developing a unique approach which is transforming how it is tackled. Their pioneering use of unmanned aircraft and integrated sensors allows them to fly routinely and deliver an efficient and cost-effective solution with minimal risk and extremely low environmental impact. The enabling technology is the SeekIR gas sensor, manufactured by SeekOps, which provides ultra-sensitive emissions measurements in a custom payload for the Flylogix Fixed-wing aircraft. SeekOps’ data analytics ultimately deliver reliable measurements of emissions from offshore installations.Recent industry testing proved SeekOps’ methane sensing technology to enable the detection of extremely low emission rates. Flylogix have successfully integrated their sensor into its FX2 unmanned aircraft, and alongside its in-house developed software, AI and SatComms it delivers a unique solution to remote, stand-off emissions monitoring.The Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) is backing the development of this new technology and aligning techniques with the broader UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) community.Charles Tavner, Executive Chairman at Flylogix, said:“This partnership between Flylogix and SeekOps is fantastic news as we continue to pioneer the use of full-service, over-horizon unmanned aviation in support of the energy industry.“Integrating SeekOps’ world class methane sensor with our UAVs offers energy companies the opportunity to transform how they conduct emissions monitoring in remote locations and realise significant benefits to cost, safety and the environment.”SeekOps Senior Vice President, Andrew Aubrey, said:“We recognize the position that Flylogix has secured as a leader in Beyond Visual Line of Sight flight operations offshore in the United Kingdom. SeekOps is excited to expand our applications in partnership with Flylogix to satisfy the needs for offshore emissions measurement using our ultra-sensitive gas sensors and actionable analytics.” Source: Company Press Release
“At the Arts Council we believe that arts, culture and creativity have the power to transform people’s lives and the places where they live. It’s been a pleasure to work with DCMS to deliver the Cultural Development Fund, which makes significant investment across the arts, heritage and creative industries to bring about real change – and gives us the opportunity to demonstrate and quantify the impact that arts and culture have on economic growth and productivity in urban areas.” Five locations across England will receive a share of £20 million to invest in local culture, heritage and creative industries and help drive economic growth, Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright announced today.In the first government investment of its kind, Grimsby, the Thames Estuary, Plymouth, Wakefield and Worcester will use the funding on local cultural plans which are tailored to the strengths and needs of each area.It is expected that the funding will create over 1,300 new jobs, benefit 2,000 people through skills training, and support more than 700 businesses.

More workers who make saving a habit report better health than those who do not. And it’s not just about having a high income.by: Dan KadlecPeople who save money out of habit are more confident about retirement and better prepared financially, as you might expect. But there’s a sleeper benefit, new research shows. Consistent savers also are in better health—no small matter as longevity stretches out life spans and means you likely will live in retirement more years than you did in childhood.Three in four regular savers rate their health as excellent or good, compared to 62% of those who do not save regularly, according to the Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey 2015. This might have to do with the lower stress that comes from being financially secure. Meanwhile, 77% of those in excellent health expect to live comfortably in retirement, vs. just 49% of those in poor health, Aegon found.Given the active aspirations of today’s retirees, the longevity revolution has elevated the role that health plays in later life. Half of those in the Aegon survey would like to pursue new hobbies; two-thirds would like to travel more, and 1-in-6 would like stay at work in their retirement years. continue reading » 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
