John Crane Asset Management has secured a contract to supply Maersk Oil with data services to support the planned maintenance strategy at one of the largest new developments in the UK North Sea.

At the Culzean field, John Crane Asset Management Solutions will provide data build services as well as establishing a maintenance plan for all topside equipment. A Detailed Criticality Analysis and Maintenance Definition (DCAMD) strategy will be developed to cover high-criticality equipment with generic procedures being used for non-critical appliances. Additionally, in June, John Crane Asset Management Solutions was awarded a five-year contract to provide condition based maintenance services with another major operator in the UK North Sea.

In October 2015, John Crane Group announced it had acquired Aberdeen independent Asset Management business, XPD8 Solutions Ltd. Both contracts will enable the strengthened John Crane Asset Management Solutions team to use their expertise to fully meet the customer needs and further increase their asset performance.

John Morrison, Managing Director at John Crane Asset Management Solutions, said: “To be involved in supporting the maintenance strategy on one of the most significant projects on the UK Continental Shelf in recent years is fantastic news for the company. Having an effective strategy will stand the development in good stead for years to come, giving those in charge the confidence that their topside equipment will perform reliably and efficiently.”
