Opex Group has won a three-year contract, worth six-figures per year, to provide data analytics services for Dana Petroleum in the North Sea.
The Aberdeen-headquartered firm will apply its X-Pas technology to the Triton and Western Isles FPSOs under the deal, which includes two one-year options.
X-Pas is a data science and predictive maintenance software that can help oil installations achieve “cleaner, more efficient and lower cost operations”.
Opex Group said it follows earlier collaboration with Dana, whereby it provided AI-driven tools to automatically monitor sub-systems of the Triton and Western Isles vessels.
CEO Jamie Bennett said: “This new contract win builds upon our successful collaboration with Dana Petroleum. We look forward to continuing to support their asset teams, helping to enhance productivity and provide digital solutions to operational challenges.
“It arrives at a time when Opex is rapidly expanding our product offering, encompassing both operational stability and emissions reduction solutions to help operators achieve their decarbonisation targets.”
Last year the firm announced a collaboration with Wood Mackenzie to securely pool operations data from multiple assets across the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) with the aim of sharing best practice and reducing costs.
