Major Oil and Gas Producer
A major oil and gas producer saves $478,000 with Industry Accelerator model.
To avoid safety hazards, regulatory violations and operational disruptions, this oil and gas producer needed to improve coordination between maintenance and operations and acquire better preventive maintenance, faster problem resolution, and the ability to track and audit safety incidents with greater ease.
The oil and gas producer keeps facilities running safely and reliably with BPD’s Maximo Accelerator for Oil & Gas. With an automated workflow for all maintenance activity, the company can track assets and incidents, analyse equipment failures and identify safety risks. This visibility helps the company predict why equipment fails and when it is likely to fail, which allows technicians to resolve problems faster and supports smarter, more efficient preventive maintenance programs.
