One of the UK’s leading engineering information management providers has been awarded – and has already successfully delivered – a £685k contract to deliver Software as a Service solutions that will capture engineering information for the build of the world’s most sustainable oil and gas production projects.
Datum360 – which has offices throughout the UK, Kuala Lumpur and Houston – has been appointed by Total to provide a data warehouse for the groundbreaking Martin Linge project in the Norwegian North Sea.
Currently under construction – with a completion date expected of 2016 – the Martin Linge scheme brings technological innovations to the oil and gas production industry designed to significantly reduce environmental impacts and enhance operational safety.
With a water depth of 115 metres, the development will set a precedent for sustainability by receiving its electrical power from the onshore grid via a 170km subsea cable that will reduce carbon emissions by two million metric tons.
As part of its contract Datum360 has already implemented its off the shelf, proven SaaS solutions; CLS360 and PIM360 which have, not only, captured the specification for gathering the engineering information, but which will now act as the data management warehouse for its ongoing collection and assurance.
And – in an industry breakthrough – Datum360 has managed to implement both of the SaaS products in less than one week, in a sector traditionally dominated by lengthy implementation, failed delivery and spiralling costs.
