Transforming offshore operations - mature asset management and logistics

Exploring better ways to use digitech to manage mature assets better

Tuesday, June 20, 2017, Aberdeen, Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Aberdeen Treetops


Download the event report

There is a big push in Aberdeen to find better ways to harness data to harness the potential of the North Sea - and many people seem to have a sense that more can be done with digital technology. So there should be business opportunities for companies which can offer products and services to help do it.

There are high-tech pathways forward - we are seeing large drones fitted with LIDAR (laser) scans, advanced analytic tools which promise to give you an integrated picture of your risks, 3D visualisations of the platform and manage data over the full lifecycle, and advanced sensors.

There are also many efforts to improve and better manage the data itself and make it work harder - including sharing technical data and documentation when you have the same large item (such as pump or compressor) used in different places, better ways to keep spare part data up to date, ways to integrate asset integrity data with SAP, using data to better managing available vessel space.

And perhaps the industry can find better ways to look at asset integrity management, maintenance, spare parts and logistics as an integrated data system.

ShareCat

The company was established in Bergen, Norway in 1993 and employs more than 130 highly skilled people. Our offices are based in Norway, UK, USA and Australia with a low cost service center in Malaysia. The company's main owner is a large Norwegian private equity fund, ensuring financial capacity to grow and invest in new products and markets.
SHAREcat has been used by more than 30 major oil & gas operators. It has been deployed in close to 40 capital greenfield projects as well as for plant improvement/cataloguing programs covering more than 100 installations. Sharecat has a number of Global Agreements with Major Owner Operators and a Major Global EPC Organization. The company has ongoing projects in Australia, Indonesia, Nigeria, Oman, Iraq, Gulf of Mexico, Saudi Arabia and the North Sea. A global strategic alliance is established and in operation with WorleyParsons.

Sharecat's experience

Inadequate supply chain information and procedures are costing the process industries billions of dollars a year in plant startup delays, needless capital expenditure on inventory, procurement and maintenance inefficiencies, and significant revenue losses from unnecessary facility shutdowns.
Sharecat has for 20 years been focused on addressing this challenge, and has developed a set of Solutions that drives inefficiencies out of the industry's supply chain to provide early visibility of quality, fully validated content to all parties in the plant life cycle. Uniquely, SHAREcat improves information on existing facilities to give a true picture of the physical plant configuration, linked through the bill of materials to inventory spares. SHAREcat accelerates facility startup, minimises capital expenditure on inventory, and delivers major improvements in procurement, operations and maintenance.

The SHAREcat Solutions

SHAREcat is an internet based 'Software as a Service' solution, enabling access from any computer via a web browser. No hardware of software installation is required. The Solution comes with a set of configurable interfaces to external IT systems.

Product Catalogue

Sharecat is a global product catalogue that is updated on a continuous basis with manufacturers, product numbering, data templates and documentation. It contains product information captured over an 18 year period including products no longer in production, but still installed at thousands of assets. Companies can choose to be part of this shared catalogue by providing and getting information, but still being able to manage their special requirements. Alternatively private catalogues can be established for companies. These collect information from the global catalogue but do not share information they themselves bring in to this private catalogue. Regions/countries may have (or want to have) unified and special requirements for their local industry with the purpose to improve quality and efficiency. All product information in the catalogue are standardized (ISO15926 compliant) and validated.

SHAREcat Capture and Collaboration

Sharecat provides a solution to manage capture, approval and delivery of all technical information from the supply chain. The solution is an intelligent, rule-based workflow and validation software suite. Detailed management reporting gives visibility and control. Sharecat allows for dynamic hand over to operations when needed and the solution is seamless Integration with the Product Catalogue.

Improvement

Many operators experience that a lack of information challenge the ability to run their asset efficiently. Most operators also experience how tough it can be, to fill the information gaps. Sharecat Solutions offers a program that deals with this problem. It captures all available information from various systems (including paper based archives) and makes it available in a structured way. This also prepares the ground for the powerful auto recognition features in the system, to bring validated information from the catalogue to fill missing gaps.
