Following a comprehensive competitive review, Teekay Petrojarl has awarded Petrotechnics a two million euro contract to deploy Proscient™ across all of their assets worldwide. Petrotechnics will provide dynamic, industry leading work management tools to support Teekay Petrojarl's goal of creating a standardised approach to work management across their global operations. This will provide a common method of increasing work management efficiency and enhancing the organisations view of the relationship between asset risk, operational risk and control of work.
"This is a significant award for Petrotechnics and the start of a long-term relationship with an innovative and progressive company," said Iain Mackay, Petrotechnics' Executive Vice President. "Petrotechnics has led the safe system of work marketplace for the last decade and Teekay Petrojarl's award represents the market moving to a solution that is more than simply permit to work," continued Mackay.
Teekay Petrojarl, the global leader in harshwater FPSOs, currently operates within UK, Norwegian and Brazilian sectors. Petrotechnics will provide Teekay Petrojarl, with a complete and efficient permit to work, operational performance and predictive risk solutions.
"We chose to partner with Petrotechnics for implementation of our electronic Control of Work system because of their solid experience and understanding of operational risk management in our industry," said Sverre Stenvaag, Teekay Petrojarl SVP Operations. "We believe Proscient™ will help improve the controls and efficiency of how we control work, hence reducing the risks involved in our operations. We also believe the implementation is an opportunity to consistently harmonise the way we handle central work processes such as Permit to Work and risk assessments across our fleet, while also safeguarding full compliance to regulatory requirements in all regions where we operate."
