XPD8 Solutions nets Jubilee FPSO work from Tullow
XPD8 Solutions, an oil and gas service company headquartered in Aberdeen, has won a contract with Tullow Oil for work in Ghana.
According to the company, the contract with Tullow for work at Jubilee field offshore Ghana is worth about £375,000 ($563,000).
Over six-months, XPD8 will migrate Tullow Oil’s existing computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) to the Maximo software package. The system will support planning, scheduling, performance monitoring and reporting of asset integrity key performance indicators at the Jubilee floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel Kwame Nkrumah.
The Jubilee FPSO is located 60km offshore Ghana at a water depth of 1,100m and is designed to operate for 20 years.
The scope of work includes cleansing, enrichment and migration of existing master data to the new CMMS and its implementation.
Mark Cavanagh, managing director at XPD8, said: “It is a pat on the back to our team that we have been chosen to work again with Tullow Oil, which is an existing client for us, on what is another significant contract for XPD8. We will be providing a system that meets the client’s standards and will support them to achieve industry best practice.
“Our maintenance engineering staff will deliver the project that helps to reinforce our position in West Africa and builds upon what has already been a successful partnership.
“It has been widely reported that the oil and gas industry is experiencing a difficult period and I believe we are able to support our customers in saving on costs through our effective maintenance programmes.”
