New Software to Enhance Asset Management Efficiencies in Shell’s Projects

Shell has recently partnered with ABL’s innovative master data build and optimization software, EffioTM, to support its upcoming large-scale newbuild projects, such as LNG Canada, Crux, and Jackdaw. With the help of Effio, Shell aims to streamline its asset management processes, leading to significant time savings and improved overall efficiency.

Effio has revolutionized the computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) build within Shell, reducing the time required by up to 50% compared to traditional methods. By introducing a unique solution that eliminates manual tasks commonly associated with CMMS projects, such as data preparation and complex package management, Effio has successfully enhanced the speed and accuracy of the process. Stuart Murray, Head of Technical at ABL’s asset and integrity management team, highlighted Effio’s impact on Shell’s projects.

ABL’s collaboration with Shell began with the deployment of Effio on LNG Canada and one of Shell’s shale gas projects in Canada. Having achieved remarkable success in these initial ventures, Effio is set to be implemented across other global projects. Effio is a cloud-based software that specializes in master data build, extract, transform and load (ETL), and optimization. ABL’s in-house software team developed the tool to deliver remarkable time and cost efficiencies for various projects.

Effio acts as a comprehensive solution for controlled and efficient deployment of an asset management strategy, enabling consistent and connected workflows. The software’s ability to automate maintenance activities and perform quality checks on data sets before loading them into an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or a CMMS contributes to greater accuracy and reliability.

As ABL continues to work closely with Shell, the focus remains on adhering to established industry and data standards, such as the ISO standard and CFIHOS. ABL’s asset integrity management teams in Aberdeen and London are overseeing the project from the supplier side, ensuring seamless implementation and support throughout.

This collaboration between ABL and Shell signifies a commitment to continuous improvement in asset management, optimizing processes, and building trust in the business. By embracing innovative technological solutions like Effio, Shell is driving industry standards forward and setting new benchmarks for efficiency and effectiveness in asset management.
