XPD8 Wins £375k Contract With Tullow Oil In Ghana
Asset integrity management specialist, XPD8 Solutions, has secured a £375,000 contract for work in West Africa with Tullow Oil.
Over six-months, the Aberdeen-headquartered firm will migrate Tullow Oil’s existing computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) to the Maximo software package.
The system will support planning, scheduling, performance monitoring and reporting of asset integrity key performance indicators at the Jubilee floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in Ghana.
The scope of work includes cleansing, enrichment and migration of existing master data to the new CMMS and its implementation.
XPD8 is recognised as a leader in maintenance engineering, condition monitoring and integrity services for the oil & gas sector.
Mark Cavanagh, managing director at XPD8, said: “It is a pat on the back to our team that we have been chosen to work again with Tullow Oil, which is an existing client for us, on what is another significant contract for XPD8. We will be providing a system that meets the client’s standards and will support them to achieve industry best practice.
“Our maintenance engineering staff will deliver the project that helps to reinforce our position in West Africa and builds upon what has already been a successful partnership.
"It has been widely reported that the oil and gas industry is experiencing a difficult period and I believe we are able to support our customers in saving on costs through our effective maintenance programmes.”
The Jubilee FPSO was installed in November 2010, at a water depth of 1,100m and is designed to operate for 20 years.
This latest contract compliments existing work being carried out by XPD8 on MODEC’s Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) FPSO, operated on behalf of Tullow Oil. The deal, announced during April 2014, sees XPD8 working as part of the engineering, procurement and construction team to develop a maintenance programme and inventory data.
Formed in 2003, XPD8 is a privately owned company which provides skilled engineers for all areas of the asset management process.
XPD8 has received ISO9001 accreditation for its quality management systems which ensures high standards throughout the business.
