Offshore oil and gas companies that own and operate complex mobile assets require enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software designed specifically for the offshore environment. Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel owners, drilling contractors and other offshore asset owners can increase profitability, improve efficiency, take control of project risks by implementing software that unites their onshore and offshore operations on a single version of the truth.
Software for offshore oil and gas operations must:
- Provide for a complex international finance organization, where the location of assets in international waters impacts tax and regulatory schema
- Unite project and asset management onto a single platform to track the condition of the asset over a lifetime that includes multiple refits.
- Deal with complexities of an international supply chain where inventory is distributed and some spares and repairs items are shared regionally by multiple vessels.
- Build an enterprise platform upon which innovation can add real value through technologies like the internet of things (IoT).
