In the world of Oil and Gas production environments, there are many long-established resources, still delivering the goods, many years after they were first commissioned. Some of these assets are one company-owned from the outset, sometimes they are as a result of mergers and acquisitions. In any case, older assets typically require more maintenance than newly designed and built facilities. If there are going to be issued, it’s probably going to be with older assets.
Here is the problem, data will be often stored in a variety of sources, some current some in legacy systems. In previous times data management was not always a priority, particularly in acquired assets.
How to efficiently manage this? Do you live with what you have and risk operating with incomplete or outdated information? Do you rely on current workforce knowing where to start looking for data? Do you start over, spend time, effort and money collating, cleaning and restructuring information before importing the sanitized content into a new solution? With older assets, often these costs cannot be justified, particularly if the asset has a limited lifespan.
Understanding what you have and how it is connected is vital for a safe and efficient operation of your asset.
The effort required to locate, access and manage your data directly translates into the operational costs, but also the safety and human error margin. Is your data easily manageable?
Is the information available to your maintenance operators actual and up to date? The integrity of data is of crucial importance to the operation of oil and gas facilities.
Do you know where the required critical asset documentation is stored? Can your personnel easily access it or do they need to switch between complex systems and request usage rights?
Do you have a single overview of all the assets and their related documentation? Fragmented and scattered data often costs organisation much manual labour and mistakes.
