Increase Equipment Uptime Through Robust Enterprise Asset Management

Aug 22, 2014

Whether you operate in the Upstream Drilling and Exploration sector, the Midstream distribution sector or the Downstream refineries, ensuring the availability and maximizing the capacity of your assets is critical to success. Oil & Gas equipment assets are continuously transferred between rigs, areas, divisions and countries, so while difficult, it is critical to accurately track those assets’ locations and record whether they are installed, staged or non-operational. The Oil & Gas industry must also operate and maintain their assets to the highest standards to ensure Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) compliance, and their asset management programs are critical in supporting those key efforts and initiatives.

This white paper discusses how having a well-organized approach to maintenance execution will help you avoid unplanned downtime, and how arming your workforce with the proper tools, procedures and instructions so they can perform work safely, effectively and efficiently.

Continuous Improvement for Maintenance with Robust Reporting and Analytics

Aug 22, 2014

You should have real-time, anywhere access to more relevant and comprehensive data to help manage and improve your business processes. A CMMS / EAM solution is an important step toward becoming a Best-in-Class maintenance organization, but you also need tools to create, configure and manage integrated visualizations of that data in order to facilitate the continuous improvement. An easy-to-use and robust analytics platform will allow your business to identify trends and highlight complex performance relationships that are typically lost in day-to-day tactical reports. This capability is especially important in the Oil & Gas industry where maintaining and monitoring vital assets is crucial to production uptime and avoiding complicated, costly and catastrophic equipment failures.

Read the white paper to see how leveraging your CMMS / EAM data and merging it with important enterprise data from other solutions often yields significant value and helps drive continuous improvement efforts across the organization.

Enterprise Asset Management Solution for Movable Assets in the Oil & Gas Industry

Aug 22, 2014

Drilling and exploration companies face several challenges in effectively managing assets both offshore and onshore. Rigs operate as mobile factories with many systems and subsystems consisting of many assets. However, unlike general manufacturing, these assets routinely move between divisions, repair facilities, and even countries.

The need to manage the transfer of assets is critical. To ensure reliability, availability and continued preventive maintenance activities, an audit trail is needed to show where assets have been located, and for what duration, over the lifecycle of the asset. Additionally, maintenance needs to be able to easily view all work orders, costs and equipment history for assets regardless of their physical location in your organization.

This white paper describes how your organization can accurately track asset movement between divisions, repair facilities, and even countries.

Sesam for subsea design analysis

Aug 22, 2014

With the exponential growth in the subsea sector, a new set of challenges now face the industry. Mostly due to equipment sizes growing as is the case with manifolds and templates. To keep up with demand,  the major operators have now classified such equipment as significant load carrying structures and not just equipment. In the past these structures were small enough to be considered as non-structures and a FEM (Finite Element Method) assessment was sufficient in most cases, but with the new classification a FEM stress analysis alone is not adequate  and a full design based on use of structural design Codes and recommended practices is now required. This paper offers an introduction to subsea structures and shows how Sesam software can offer a complete and efficient tool to perform the design analysis of these structures.
