Asset Guardian Solutions Ltd. (AGSL) has completed three projects for a major North Sea oil and gas operator that manages and operates numerous developments in the North Sea, Norway, Algeria, and Russia.
During the past two years, AGSL has completed three linked contracts, two of which required that the Asset Guardian toolset be customized to meet the customer’s requirements.
The initial contract awarded to AGSL provided the operator with a secure electronic, centralized repository to store all process control systems software back-up files. In addition, the Asset Guardian toolset included software version control and the ability to manage all software configuration changes.
To ensure that all of its personnel, onshore or offshore, have access to the same information, AGSL also supplied its AGSync software module.
The operator also used Asset Guardian to provide a corporate, multidisciplinary management of change system solution. Following completion of AGSL’s work scope, the solution has been implemented and released across all company assets.
In addition, AGSL was requested to develop a further solution to manage the data relating to the company’s subsea production infrastructure.
By using the same Asset Guardian core software and some of the functionality of the two previous projects, AGSL developed a subsea asset management solution that makes it possible for the customer to use and share common data across different business units and disciplines. ASGL said that this integrated approach provided improved reporting, workflow data management, and enhanced efficiencies that resulted in a capex cost reduction.
The operator and AGSL have signed a master services agreement, which recognizes AGSL as a preferred supplier of application-based software solutions.
