PTTEP completes SRO implementation

SRO Solutions reports that it has recently completed the implementation of its data replicator system for oil and gas exploration company PTTEP in Western Australia.

The SRO Data Replicator (SDR), based on IBM Maximo asset management software, will be used to manage operations by sharing data across the company’s offices in Perth and Darwin in Australia, and also in Singapore.

“SDR is designed to solve the exact problem we were facing,” explained Greg Archer, PTTEP IT support engineer.

“SRO staff were excellent, they worked closely with our team to gain an understanding of what we wanted. This enabled them to carry out a lot of the configuration work in the UK. When they were ready, they flew over to Perth and installed the solution.”

“Everything went smoothly and they did a great job on knowledge transfer. We now expect to see significant improvements in productivity and reductions in maintenance and procurement costs.”

SDR will particularly be used to maintain equipment onboard a newly built PTTEP floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel that will be used for a project to develop oilfields in the southern Timor Sea, to maintain optimal levels of uptime.

“This requires robust preventive and corrective maintenance processes that needed Maximo to work effectively,” SRO managing director, Steve Driver, explained.

“The most important challenge was to keep the maintenance and procurement processes in sync between Perth, Darwin and the offshore FPSO.”

“It could only communicate via a low-bandwidth satellite link and so they needed separate instances of the data to be kept in three locations so that everyone could carry on with their work even if the connection temporarily went down.”

  • StratumFive launches collaborative workspace

    StratumFive has launched Podium, a collaborative workspace that connects applications, data, and people, across the maritime community.

    Podium connects any data source or third party application and integrates them within its timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational decision-making, in a flexible and collaborative workspace.

    Powerful features and configurability allow users across an enterprise to easily build their own dashboards, customised data mapping, interactive displays and alerts, from any location. This enables owners, operators and managers to streamline and standardise the data they use, whilst reducing costs by discarding duplicate data sets.

    Podium ingests, unifies and visualises billions of data points and scales to accommodate user demands and data volumes, whilst maintaining complete consistency in terms of output for all users.

    In addition, the Podium partnership program will enable start-ups and existing digital providers to expand their maritime presence easily by accessing StratumFive’s global client base, data holdings and technical infrastructure.

    Podium launches with a series of in-house options including voyage monitoring, weather routing and StratumFive’s next generation compliance and tracking applications.

    “With many years spent in operations around the world, I have been frustrated by the inefficiencies and costs caused by poor data acquisition, processing and communication across applications and stakeholders,” said Mike Powell, strategy director, StratumFive.

    “Until now, digitalisation has often made things worse for people working on ships and at shore, as increasing enterprise-wide data and information demands require too much manual intervention and effort. Currently, high levels of activity do not always equal productivity.

    “Podium is designed to be the workspace for the whole enterprise, linking data and applications, ensuring all stakeholders not only start from the same page, but also have the tools they need to maximise the efficiency and value of their part of the voyage.”

    Ross Martin, COO, StratumFive, added: “It is true that shipping businesses globally are currently not reaping the promised rewards of digitalisation - but Podium provides the solution that our industry desperately needs to realise cost savings and other operational efficiencies.

    “A growing number of operators are laboriously gathering data from a number of silos and trying to make sense of it using generic ‘business intelligence’ tools. These tools do not offer the maritime domain specific functionality, nor the degree of automation required to make smarter operational decisions faster.”

    StratumFive consulted closely with the industry in the development of Podium. Major owners and operators are already using the platform across their daily operations, with reportedly more preparing to adopt the technology in the near future.
