Asset Guardian Solutions signs contract with Australia's Woodside

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Asset Guardian Solutions Ltd (AGSL), which specialises in critical control software asset protection for the process and manufacturing industry, announced that it has secured a significant contract with Woodside. The company is Australia's leading oil and gas producer, and one of the world's largest suppliers of liquefied natural gas.

As a result of this contract, AGSL is providing Woodside with a Programmable Systems Management (PSM) tool set to provide enhanced management of the critical software assets that it uses across the company to operate the Karratha Gas Plant, Pluto onshore and offshore facilities, as well as six additional facilities.

Currently, Woodside employs a variety of applications to manage these programmable systems. The Asset Guardian solution will replace those applications with a single system for all information. By doing so, the AG solution will enable a speedier recovery of programmable systems in the event of any technical problems, minimising impact on production.

In addition to providing a safer, more secure means of storing software and maintaining a register of information about each programmable system, Asset Guardian will also manage the process for making changes to system code, enabling compliance with industry standards, regulations and guidelines.

This three-year contract from Woodside comes on the heels of recent contract awards to AGSL from BP, Marathon Oil UK and CNR.
