Long-term management and maintenance of assets is critical for oil and gas companies. An owner-operator or contractor doing asset upgrades or lifecycle extensions on drilling rigs or production platforms is met with strict quality requirements. Unwarranted downtime directly impacts the bottom line and must be avoided. IFS offers owners and contractors an industry-based solution for more effective processes and increased service revenues.
IFS offers owner-operators and service contractors an integrated industry solution for sound management of operations, maintenance and service requirements for both offshore and onshore environments.
To ensure optimum cost and delivery-time management, large service contracts are typically executed as projects. In IFS Project Management, designated project activities, executed within a collaborative network, are the basis for the planning and scheduling of work elements, including equipment and personnel mobilization. Configurable operations planning boards allow visual monitoring and tracking of progress, costs and on-going changes. Project engineers need only a moment to see where they’re at.
Delivery of equipment and spare parts is a critical activity for service and maintenance companies, especially in complex off-shore environments. IFS Applications manages material transfers, including handling of containers and other load carriers, for either on- or off-shore delivery. IFS Applications streamlines materials transfer, reducing shipping costs and unwarranted downtime risk.
IFS Applications combines calendar-based maintenance with event-based, condition-based and predictive-maintenance strategies. Integration with global-positioning (GPS) mobility solutions—including IFS Touch Apps—keeps all parties in synch, based on IFS’ leading mobile workforce scheduling and optimization solution.
Seadrill (formerly Smedvig), listed on the Oslo stock exchange, is a leading international offshore drilling contractor. The new SeaDrill has focused its operations in four main markets: jack-up rigs, mobile units, tender rigs and well services. The company has a modern fleet of 34 units, of which 13 are under construction. SeaDrill operates in 12 contries on three continents and has more than 4 800 employees.
IFS is a leading vendor of solutions that support processes similar to our main processes, and the solution met our specifications. IFS had a local presence, which made collaboration much easier and the reference visits we made also confirmed our belief in IFS as the right choice. IFS’ long experience of providing maintenance solutions to the asset-intensive industry was another critical factor.
