Asset integrity specialists add energy awarded Shell contracts

Thursday, July 24, 2014

add energy Asset and Integrity Management has secured two contracts with Shell.

The company, which celebrates its 10th years of Operational Excellence this year, has been awarded a new contract, with Shell Gabon to manage assets in their Gamba field in South Gabon and a project for Shell Canada's Albian Sands project. add energy has an established relationship with Shell having had a master framework agreement in place with Shell since 2004.

The new contract with Shell Gabon includes carrying out maintenance, integrity and execution (MIE) services for asset in the Gamba Field; a field in southern Gabon which was discovered 50 years ago and which has been producing since 1967.

Stig H. Christiansen, CEO of add energy comments, 'These contracts are strong examples of repeat business with Shell, a relationship that has been developed and enhanced over many years. It allows us to prove our commitment to long term partnerships and to consistently deliver on our Quality Goal. We are proud to continue to serve Shell in the area of Asset Integrity Management in different countries and for different work scopes.'

Peter Adam Executive Vice President of add energy says, 'The new projects for Shell Gamba are critical to position assets to run as safely as possible and in alignment with the Shell global performance standards. We're pleased to continue to work with Shell to help in lowering operational risk, improving performance and to help our client continue to achieve operational excellence.'

A further contract with Shell Canada's Albian project involves the development of Bills of Materials (BoMs). The Athabasca Oil Sands Project involves the mining of oil from Canada's oil sands. Oil is separated from clay, sand and water before being converted into synthetic crude. add energy's new contract is a natural continuation of the maintenance, integrity and execution services already supplied to Shell by adding on this mining operation and also the Scotford Upgrader - a facility at the Albian project which processes the crude bitumen from oil sands into a wide range of synthetic crude oils.

'The Bills of Materials will make available a full set of critical spares for maintenance purposes at all times,' continues Peter Adam. 'The importance of having the correct spares in inventory is critical for Albian given the remoteness and constraints of windows of opportunity to carry out maintenance items due to complications caused by extremely low temperatures.'

add energy Asset and Integrity Management is now celebrating 10 years of operational excellence. Since establishment in 2004, the company notes that there is a much higher value focus by operators on the long-term value and the benefits for safety improvements that asset management plays. Operators are increasingly taking a holistic and proactive approach to asset integrity.

As part of this, data collation and improvement have become more important due to the statistics that can be developed from them. By improving data collected, not only can failure trends be established and maintenance tasks be adequately assigned, but it also provides operators with a much clearer picture on their return on investment.
