TOULOUSE, France – Asystom and Archer have formed a technology co-operation covering use of Asystom’s predictive maintenance technology for oil and gas drilling facilities.
The company’s predictive maintenance solution combines machine learning with multi-sensors for prediction. The partners plan further development for drilling facilities worldwide to improve asset management.
Peter Nygaard Andersen, vice president Engineering at Archer, said: “Asystom’s technology is easily adaptable to our industry and meets the market demands for improved asset management by use of artificial intelligence.
“Machinery learning will enable us to predict and avoid shutdowns, thus reducing non-productive time significantly. The system will aid the asset owner to further reduce cost by enhanced condition control and optimizing maintenance planning. Consequently, the system will respond to our goals to reduce our industry’s carbon footprint.”
André Naccache, managing director of Asystom, said the IoT predictive maintenance solution would help oil and gas drilling facilities “to future proof their operations. The solution, will improve the productivity and thus the profitability of the production units by avoiding unscheduled shutdowns.”
Archer will market the technology, and also provide Asystom with competency and knowledge based on its drilling experience.
