Skynet Labs goes from strength to strength, the latest round of media attention from today’s Buisness Post article hailing Skynet the “Start Up of the Day”.
CEO Tim Duggan discusses the time and money saving benefits Skynet Labs can offer the Oil and Gas industry. Tim recalls the conversation he had with his father Peter, a senior drilling supervisor with BP and Shell, that was the catalyst for the Skynet Labs project; “After picking his father up from the airport following a project in the North Sea, Duggan senior relayed the story of how a company had lost $6 million due to a miscalculation by a mud engineer. ‘I asked him about how he fixed it’ said Duggan. He had to go through the calculations with pen and paper. Eventually he found the problem in the calculations. I realised there was a gap in the market for me to provide a solution.”
