BELFAST, UK — Shell NAM has awarded Surface Corrosion Consultants a 10-year contract to deploy Surface Asset Management (SAM) software at offshore and onshore gas production complexes in the UK and Dutch (southern) North Sea.
Users will undergo training following initial penetration testing and a data cleaning process. According to Surface, the addition of a Cyber Essentials’ Plus accreditation will provide assurance to Shell NAM that Surface’s IT infrastructure is in line with the latest regulations and ISO27001 compliant.
The work scope will include integration of data into the SAM application to support asset management, allowing field inspectors to perform quality checks using the software to input/generate reports based on their findings.
Data will then be relayed to the cloud to enable real-time reporting of activities in the field.
Another project involves development of a Degradation Forecasting Module to support planning and cost efficiencies for asset upgrades.
