With a global reliance on energy and a sustained period of low oil prices, oil and gas organizations must ensure their critical assets are maintained efficiently and in line with safety, production and legislative requirements. It follows, therefore, that a well implemented Maximo system is a key opportunity for improving operational efficiency and cutting cost.

BPD Zenith has been delivering trusted Maximo solutions for over 18 years, allowing oil and gas operators to achieve success sooner, safer and more efficiently. With more Maximo for Oil & Gas implementation experience than any other partner, BPD has developed a Maximo Accelerator solution which extends the latest Maximo capabilities.

The solution embodies tried, tested and proven industry-specific processes for Work Management such as Management of Change, Regulatory Reporting, Permit to Work, Operators Log, Downtime Reporting, Industry Codes, and Work Order Tracking. The ability to deploy standard Maximo templates enables any organization to on-board multiple assets, irrespective of whether they are new assets or pre-existing assets that have been acquired from multiple organizations. With automated processes, costs are reduced and the execution of key tasks are more consistent. The overall effect is to provide a more competitive Maximo solution by accelerating implementation time, leading to shorter time to value.

  • Business problem

    Changes in the global economy have had a major and swift impact on oil prices and revenues. This has caused significant challenges for owners, operators and the Supply Chain. Maximo for Oil & Gas supports a variety of business processes, allowing customers to achieve a combination of benefits including reduced operating expense, HSE, greater productivity, higher service levels, and deferred asset expenditures.

  • Business opportunity

    During the last 12 years, over 40 UK Continental Shelf assets have been sold from the 1st tier to 2nd tier operators. Over the next 10-15 years it is anticipated that the remaining UKCS assets (approximately 60) will be sold and that those assets will need transferred to their new operators. A smaller number of new assets are still being developed in the North Sea, but globally there is still significant exploration and growth in new fields. The development of new assets and the transition of existing assets represents a significant opportunity for IBM Maximo and for BPD’s Maximo Accelerator Service for Oil and Gas Assets.
