AGSL will install Asset Guardian software on all of the operator’s assets in the North Sea. The software provides a multi-faceted, single-point solution to manage the process control software it uses to operate these assets. It also ensures that the company complies with all relevant regulatory standards and government directives on process critical systems, such as IEC61508, 61511, ISO 9001, CPNI, and HSE KP4, among others.

By using Asset Guardian, the operator will operate with a single secure repository in which all software and data for its North Sea assets is stored. By doing so, critical information is centralized, providing authorized personnel – both onshore and offshore – with access to one source of data.

In addition to preventing unauthorized access to process software, Asset Guardian makes it possible to retrieve backup files and data required to update or replace system software that has corrupted or that has failed.

AGSL is also providing AGSync, a software solution developed especially for the oil and gas industry that makes it possible to synchronize data and files between locations.
