Gladstone Liquefied Natural Gas (GLNG) in Queensland, Australia, has selected Meridium Inc. as the platform for its enterprise-wide asset performance management (APM) initiative.
The GLNG plant, which began construction earlier this year, is a joint venture between some of the world's largest energy providers: Santos, Australia's largest producer of natural gas to the Australian domestic market; PETRONAS, Malaysia's national oil and gas company and the world's second largest exporter of LNG; French energy major, Total, the world's fifth largest publicly traded integrated international oil and gas company; and KOGAS, the world's largest LNG importer.
GLNG involves exploration and production of coal seam gas, a 420-kilometer gas pipeline from the gas fields to Gladstone, and a gas liquefaction and export facility on Curtis Island. The Meridium software implementation project at GLNG kicked off in May. GLNG has chosen to implement almost the entire suite of Meridium technology including Risk Based Inspection, Reliability Centered Maintenance, and Asset Strategy Management & Implementation.
"GLNG is committed to superior plant availability, reliability, efficiency and safety," says Rob Simpson, GLNG General Manager Upstream Operations. "In choosing Meridium, we're seeking a long term partner to help us deliver these outcomes for the GLNG production team."
