Software solutions provider Datum360 has secured a contract from Maersk Oil to deploy software as a service (SaaS) solutions for the Culzean development in the UK North Sea.
The main part of the solution, PIM360, will be at the centre of Culzean’s engineering data management.
Datum360’s software has been used for the issuing, maintenance and creation of a tagging and numbering specification along with the matching of these to particular documents, which will record work completed on all the platforms and vessel.
With use of the integrated solution, operators are economically benefitting.
Furthermore, the solution enhances consistency of data, helps in bolstering overall productivity and creates a more structured approach to managing vast amounts of project information.
Datum360 CEO and co-founder Steve Wilson said: "We are delighted to have been awarded this contract and to work with a progressive company that is very reactive to pressures faced in the oil and gas industry. As such, Maersk is really driving to increase its efficiencies and implement improvements to their engineering information management, which will play a significant role in reducing costs and saving the company time.
"It is estimated that up to 60% of an engineer’s time can be spent moving and organising data on major assets like offshore oil platforms and vessels. If the systems they use are cobbled together, ineffective and or simply don’t interlink then this time is completely wasted."
Besides implementing Datum360’s Data Management as a Service (DMaaS), Maersk has also used the software solution provider to advise its data control centre on processes and software and currently to train staff on engineering information systems.
