Cru Software receives Innovation award from leading Oil & Gas producer

Thank you, Santos!

Santos Onshore Development and Cru Software have been awarded the Directors EHSS Awards for 'Innovation & Efficiency'.

Cru was recognised for its  Automated Network Design (ANT) solution that saved Santos millions in design and construction costs. Before using ANT, it would take the team weeks or months to generate network designs manually. With ANT, the design takes minutes, the team can make changes in real time and create endless scenarios with associated costs. The technology revolutionised Santos' processes in a significant way.

As part of the implementation of the tool, Cru Software thanks Santos for the opportunity to work with the Onshore Development team.
