Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Aberdeen Treetops

We invite you to register for our 3rd Aberdeen "Doing More with Offshore Engineering Data" event, a forum for sharing the latest ideas and experiences for better ways to manage data and documents related for offshore operations. This includes design, maintenance, spares and operations documents, and making the most out of data over the lifetime of the asset, covering design, construction, operations and decommissioning.

You won't need reminding that in order to maintain offshore safety and asset integrity, reduce operational costs, avoid errors and ultimately maximise value from offshore assets, you need to get as much value as possible from the data you have - which means managing it in the most effective way possible.

Our opening speaker, Alan Tough, was data manager for ConocoPhillips' Jasmine Project, business process change manager with North Caspian Operating Company in Paris, Capital Projects Process Change Manager with BP and Engineering Data Warehouse Project Lead with ConocoPhillips. He will speak about how to orchestrate a high quality information management handover for a capital project.

Lin Whitworth of Datum360, a former project information manager with a North Sea operator, will be tackling the question, "is the customer always right". Do oil and gas companies always know exactly how their project information should be managed?

Rick Standish, solution strategy manager with AVEVA Solutions will explain the latest with developing a 'digital asset' - a information model equivalent to the entire physical asset - and how it can help with decision making.

Sturle Drageset, sales and marketing director with ShareCat will explain how to close the information gap in major projects. Peter Moyes from Amtech will explain how to make it easier to manage spares and components using RFID.

Early booking tickets are just £60. Academic tickets (for lecturers + students) available for £5 + VAT with voucher code academic

We look forward to meeting you there!

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.


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.
