CALGARY, Canada -- Nexen Petroleum UK has awarded ShareCat Solutions a contract to support the spares management activity for the Buzzard Enhancement project in Aberdeen.
The contract will provide gathering, validation, and analysis services of the spare parts for the field's fourth platform. ShareCat's scope of work includes the assessment of all spares recommendations from the supply chain for accuracy and completeness.
"Discussions with ShareCat have confirmed our views that the capture of this information during the project phase is more cost effective than identifying it in later years," says Martyn Campbell, Nexen's Maintenance Team Leader. "In addition, the ability to consolidate spares and warehouse inventory based on assessment of the complete asset and its ongoing needs will minimize the operational costs and provide rapid response to new materials requirements."
