Making it the Norm

We were excited to head over the pond recently for drilling company Noble, headquartered in Houston, Texas. We filmed their brand new Noble Operational Risk Management Support (NORMS) Centre, which uses the latest remote technology to monitor their offshore installations around the world. NORMS was purpose-built to ensure safe and efficient management of their critical operations, reducing operational shutdowns. Lessons learnt on operations at any of the installations can now be rapidly shared throughout the company, to improve safety across their rigs worldwide.

Our film crew flew to Houston where they spent two days filming the team onshore at the NORMS Centre and interviewing key personnel.

They then flew to New Orleans and onwards to the ‘Valiant’, drillship in the Gulf of Mexico, to film a wide range of operations and see what NORMS looks like from the offshore end.

Everything really is bigger in Texas; big hats, big boots and big cars! The crew enjoyed a long drive through Louisiana and back to Houston to end the trip and return home after 2 weeks away.

Back in our edit suite, we combined the onshore and offshore scenes with motion graphics, to emphasise Noble’s global reach and the real time transfer of important data around the globe.

The resulting ‘NORMS’ film is a testament to Noble’s commitment to excellence and continual improvement. It is the first in a planned series that will promote the benefits of NORMS to potential clients, partners and Noble’s global workforce.

Noble has been at the forefront of the energy industry for over 90 years, and this is the third major project we’ve worked on together. The feedback on the film has been incredibly positive and we’re delighted that they trusted us once again with helping to promote such an important investment in their future. You can watch the film here.
