UAE: ADMA-OPCO Selects DNV Software Services for Their Offshore Installations

Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) has chosen DNV Software to deliver asset integrity management software and services covering their fixed and floating offshore installations, pipelines and processing facilities. This significant contract represents an industrial recognition of DNV Software’s Enterprise Risk Management solutions.

Ageing installations and infrastructures are an increasing challenge for the oil and gas industry. Through deployment of new technology the industry can safely and responsibly improve business performance while also enhancing corporate social responsibility.

“This Integrity Management initiative from ADMA-OPCO shows that safe and sustainable business operations are taken seriously, at the same time as the initiative makes the conditions favourable for improved profitability. We look forward to starting the implementation at ADMA-OPCO,” says Are Føllesdal Tjønn, DNV Software Managing Director.

The deliverance is a mix of integrity management software covering areas such as pipelines, structures, topsides, plants and risk-based inspection, together with a risk and KPI dashboard configured for ADMA-OPCO’s needs. The project will also include installation, configuration, training, integration and data loading delivered by DNV Software.

The implementation involves integrating DNV asset integrity management software with ADMA-OPCO’s Maximo, ArcGIS and Document Management systems. In addition it includes an option to integrate ADMA-OPCO’s existing Well Integrity management system into the Enterprise Risk Management portal.

The Middle East region is a key market for DNV Software’s solutions for risk management. The contract with one of the major players in the region is a door opener for DNV Software for further market penetration within the asset integrity management business.

“ADMA-OPCO represents a leading oil and gas operator in the Middle East. We have many years of experience delivering to the integrity management sector and this contract shows that the market appreciates our complete and user-friendly Enterprise Risk Management solutions. We have great confidence in our integrity management strategy,” says Mr Tjønn.
