Oil and Gas

Keep it contained, keep it managed and make absolutely sure nothing can go wrong…

Oil & Gas – arguably the most important yet dangerous materials on the planet.  Critical to the global economy and consumed on a massive scale, the acquisition, processing and distribution of these volatile hydrocarbons demands engineering at the limit of human capability.

In Oil & Gas, when things go wrong the result is catastrophic.  Recent history is littered with examples of the immense environmental, human and financial impact of catastrophic plant failures which started with a single crack or fault in one component.

As the manager of these critical assets, you cannot let this happen on your watch.  Your paramount role is to ensure the plant operates safely and reliably, while managing the inevitable pressure to keep costs down.  Shutdowns, preventative maintenance and inspections must be managed like clockwork.  Planned shutdowns can cost millions per day, but unplanned shutdowns due to a component failure can disrupt downstream operations and breach contracts for delivery.

When it comes to asset management systems – you need the best.   Tolerro specialise in high availability enterprise asset management systems, workforce mobility solutions and the consulting that makes implementation and enhancement a well-managed success.

IBM Maximo Oil & Gas is the best-of-breed asset management system designed to meet the exacting and complex requirements of the Oil & Gas Industry.

It can cater for the huge complexities of assets within Oil & Gas infrastructures while at the same time automating the processes to ensure that assets are maintained, kept safe and have optimised lifecycles.  IBM Maximo has a specific appreciation for the specialised needs of the Oil & Gas industry such as asset specifications, location details, failure codes, prioritization matrix, condition for work and regulatory compliance.

TESTIMONIAL:

“I have worked with Tolerro since 2005 when  the organisation became the first Authorised Business Partner of MRO Software, developers of Maximo. Since then I have worked with Anomi and her team in my time at MRO, IBM and SME Accelerator, as a colleague, partner and advisor. The Asset Management business is not always straightforward, and together we have been through some ups and downs. What has been consistent though, is Tolerro’s adherence to its values of providing an excellent result at a fair price. Tolerro markets itself through referrals, and thus values its professional reputation above all else. This motivates the Tolerro team to focus not only on the obligatory metrics of on-time and on-budget, but on the real value they can deliver to clients. I recommend Tolerro as a business worthy of the title “Partner”… Tolerro is genuinely invested in your success.”

Failure Codes

Advantages

Ability to import standard failure code data based on ISO 14224: Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries directly into the Maximo table structure for Failure Class and Failure List. The failure class, problem cause and remedy for Oil & Gas assets are represented by this data.

Benefits

Reduces the time to gather and load failure classes, problems, causes and remedies.

Asset Specifications

Advantages

Ability to import standard asset specification data based on ISO 14224 into the Maximo table structure.

Benefits

Reduces the time to create this data from scratch. Once loaded, the follow-on value is the ability to classify all assets within Maximo for purposes of certification, licensing, trend analysis, equipment standardization, etc.

Location Details

Advantages

Provides insight on such asset characteristics as the true physical location, engineering reference numbers & drawing ID’s, safety zones, permitting requirements, etc.

Benefits

Oil & Gas customers add a number of additional fields to Locations to support a variety of different purposes, including physical location, taxonomy, operating context and reliability related data.

Prioritization Matrix

Advantages

A matrix based system of work or risk prioritization.

Benefits

Customers need to evaluate whether work needs to be carried out within say 1 hour, 24 hours, 3 days, 1 week, etc. based on preset criteria. Prioritization matrix ensures that critical assets are given priority maintenance; thus, removing the emotion out of critical decisions.

Regulatory Compliance

Advantages

Provides the ability to hold details of regulations relevant to work carried out in Maximo, and relate these regulations to both work planned in Maximo and actual work carried out.

Benefits

The customer is provided documented proof that work carried out in Maximo was completed based on the required regulation. Also provides the ability to demonstrate compliance with many statutory requirements covering safety, health and the environment.

Condition for Work

Advantages

Provides guidance as to when work can be completed on an asset, group of assets, or even an area or location within a plant site.

Benefits

By defining the Condition for Work (CfW), this criterion could be used by maintenance planners to aggregate similar work based on CfW or recognize work that could be done given a CfW opportunity that arises during plant operations.

Defect reporting

Advantages

Documents an asset that deviates from perfect operation.

Benefits

Drives enhanced maintenance and operational performance.

Incidents reporting

Advantages

Documents a deviation from an expected standard of operation.

Benefits

Improves process safety management.

Mobilising for risk management and efficiency….

Oil and gas infrastructure are often in remote locations and inspection can be even more remote – the bottom of pits looking at valves.  The environments these assets need to operate from can be in highly corrosive deep seas or deep underground.   These environments put your maintenance workforce and engineers in challenging situations, yet there is an imperative need to capture information accurately and send it back to the central system for updating to trigger processes for inspection and maintenance. The reliability and accuracy of your mobile workforce and the tools they use is critical.

Tolerro can offer you a mobile workforce solution to suit your organisation.
