Asset Guardian Solutions Ltd (AGSL) has landed another contract to support an oil and gas supermajor in Perth, Western Australia.
The contract is the second to be awarded by this operator in Australia to AGSL in the last 12 months.
Once again, AGSL will provide the Asset Guardian toolset, which provides a secure repository to store back-up software files and associated data, allowing them to be easily accessed in the event of a software-related production system failure. Asset Guardian will also manage all process software configuration changes.
Maintaining communications in “cyclone country”
Because the LNG project is located in “cyclone country”, communications between its onshore facilities and offshore project teams are often disrupted. To ensure that the integrity of all software and data files managed by Asset Guardian is maintained when communications break down, AGSL is also supplying its AGSync software.
AGSync synchronises software and data files across multiple locations and continues to operate during periods of disrupted communication, allowing all files between locations to synchronise as soon as communication links are restored.
Australian oil and gas market looks to Asset Guardian
For AGSL, the Australian oil and gas market has really taken off. The recent contract is the fourth Australian contract to be awarded to AGSL during the last three years, beginning with an order from Woodside Energy. Shortly thereafter, INPEX followed suit, adopting Asset Guardian for the Ichthys LNG Project.
“This recent award demonstrates the confidence that Australia-based oil and gas operators have in Asset Guardian’s ability to manage their process software, reliably and effectively,” said Sam Mackay, chief executive of AGSL. “The rapid rate at which the Australian market has embraced Asset Guardian has encouraged us to consider expanding our presence in the region in 2016.”
