The Next 50 Years
How ADMA-OPCO is using AVEVA software to future-proof its assets
Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company, ADMA-OPCO is a major producer of offshore oil and gas in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The company prides itself on being a pioneering petroleum organisation in this part of the world, having completed over 45 years of oil and gas production. But with assets now around fifty years old, ADMA's challenge is to ensure safe and productive operation for the next fifty years.
Central to the challenge of modernisation is the development and maintenance of a digital asset to support and inform long- term life cycle management of the physical asset. As a result, ADMA-OPCO has begun its As-Built Campaign to provide ADMA with a Digital Asset and develop a digital hub of up-to- date, validated information that accurately describes the current condition of its super-complexes, rather than how they were designed some fifty years ago.
ADMA's Engineering Services Team Leader, Mohammed Al- Amry, explained their life extension strategy. 'We would not extend the life of a particular platform simply for the sake of doing so. Safety remains paramount in all operational and maintenance decisions.'
