Equinor, a Norwegian state-backed oil and gas company, has selected Nauticus Robotics and its partner Stinger Technology to deploy Nauticus’ proprietary technology for leak detection.

US-listed Nauticus is engaged in developing ocean robots and artificial intelligence for autonomous services to the marine sectors.

The deal aims to demonstrate and qualify Nauticus’ leak detection technology using autonomous robots for Equinor.

The pilot project, according to Nauticus, seeks to develop a variety of applications for autonomous subsea robots as well as meet the need for better leak detection technology.

Equinor operates about 600 undersea wells and 9,000km of subsea cables, risers, and pipelines.

Having methods and systems for leak detection forms key part of the energy company’s sustainability efforts, Nauticus noted.
