Asset Management for Oil & Gas
Managing the assets and the asset value is vital as they represent large values. In the Star software systems, the categories of assets managed and monitored includes the rigs/units themselves, the equipment onboard and the spare parts.
Managing the fleet of rigs/units includes long term planning of their operation according to contracts, shipyard projects, rig move, etc. These planned and actual changes in operational mode can be defined for each unit/rig and visualized in the software solutions.
Some equipment onboard circulates between locations onboard and even between rigs/units and shore locations (warehouses). Tracking their whereabouts and their condition is important. Rental equipment can be tracked for location, usage, cost and return dates.
The Star software system has several functions imbedded to avoid unnecessary purchase and delivery of spare parts that exist somewhere in the fleet or in warehouses. When spare parts are needed users are notified about available items for internal transfer as a cost saving alternative to buying.
