ABERDEEN, UK – Magma Products has launched a technology-led system to enhance safety and efficiency during key phases of offshore oil and gas production projects.
The Completion Hand Over Management System is a web-based tool designed to capture all completion and certification data for all parts of any individual project. The multi-purpose system, with a project management ‘dashboard’ as its centrepiece, generates improved visibility and accessibility of relevant data during the commissioning and start-up phases.
Paul Rushton, Magma managing director, said: “CHOMS is an alternative solution to the traditional paper or spreadsheet based means of maintaining an overview of progress as individual elements of the project are constructed and tested.
“It can present a ‘live’ view of the status of certification and completion across a project environment that typically features multiple contractors, and thus multiple systems. This information is displayed on a ‘dashboard’ indicator, and enables users to see a complete picture of project status, allowing early intervention to solve potential problems.
“The bottom line is that by creating a single view of all project activity that supports better decision-making and judgment-forming, the safer the start-up phase as well as an effective, auditable handover.”
Data can be uploaded directly to the CHOMS system by individual contractors or via a single point in the project team.
