Improving offshore facilities management, operations and maintenance

New techniques to improve operations and maintenance of offshore facilities

Organised by Digital Energy Journal

Wednesday, March 20, 2013, Aberdeen, Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Aberdeen Treetops

On March 20th, Digital Energy Journal is organising an event for people involved in offshore facilities management, maintenance and operations, to share experiences and talk about ways to improve decision making, to maximise safety, uptime and efficiency. There is no admission fee.

There are methods being developed where you only inspect or maintain items which actually need inspection or maintenance – and make accurate predictions about what components are likely to fail before the fail. It all makes operations safer, more efficiently run and prolongs the life of the field. Are there tools which you could make more use of in your organisation?

This is the first event we are aware of covering improving offshore maintenance, operations and facilities management making use of all the methods and technologies which have been developed - we hope you will find it a useful event to meet and discuss with your colleagues.

Limited places available, register now to secure your place!

Brendan Kelly, - VP Global Business Development - AVEVA Solutions Ltd

Access to and unlocking the value of engineering information in operations

Talk Description.
Delivering Operations Information Integrity demands that engineering
and operational information is consistent between applications,
complete across different disciplines and accessible globally. These three
simple principles are the essential building blocks of AVEVA’s information
management solutions. Only when information is managed in this way
can Owner Operators and their EPC contractors perform effectively.

Most plants today use many different applications which lock data away
in ‘silos’ of proprietary information. These isolated structures contain
disconnected data formats that simply don’t communicate with each
other and cannot be shared to enable uniform and consistent access and
updates. This seriously hampers the ability of the system to deliver across
the entire range of operational business requirements.

AVEVA’s growing Owner Operator solution suite creates a data-neutral
environment for all your operational information, regardless of the
original application source.

AVEVA Solutions Ltd
AVEVA is one of the world's leading engineering, design and information management software providers to the process plant, power and marine industries.

AVEVA is proud to be celebrating 50 years of innovation! Originally developed and spun out of the University of Cambridge University, its technology has been in shaping the world around us since 1967.
