Petrotechnics launches Proscient v4.0

Petrotechnics the developer of Proscient – the hazardous industries’ first software platform for operational excellence – today launches Proscient v4.0, the first off-the-shelf software platform to fast-track companies’ journeys to digital operations.

Proscient v4.0 provides the first integrated view of the operational reality, with a radically different way to visualise and manage activity and risk. The platform intelligently unlocks a simple, elegant way of connecting activity planning, maintenance management, operations and the reality of how work is executed. Operations personnel can “operationalise” the schedule by bringing together all of work and safety dependencies to improve plan accuracy and attainment.

Proscient v4.0 also closes the gap between process safety management and operations. It automatically connects the health status of process safety-critical equipment, maintenance and inspection data to their cumulative risk impact on the operational reality of your plant. Process safety risk is presented in a way the whole organisation can understand – in time, location and in a dynamic barrier model. This makes major accident hazard risk visible, prominent and available in real-time.

Adoption rates for Proscient have accelerated rapidly in the last 12 months as companies move to implement their digital vision. The technology is currently deployed or being deployed by nine North Sea operators including Petrofac, Teekay and Neptune Energy on more than 40 assets and by two operators on 12 assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Proscient is also picking up pace in the downstream and petrochemical industries, including ongoing deployments with BASF, Saudi Aramco and Petronas.

To date, individual Proscient customers have reported up to $6.5m in annual savings, including a reduction in crew wait time of up to 75%, a 50% reduction in supervisor wait time and a reduction in annual downtime of up to 47%.

Scott Lehmann, VP of product management and marketing at Petrotechnics, comments: “Companies with digital ambition are selecting Proscient. They see the practical benefits of a truly connected digital platform and the single shared view of operational reality it provides. They’re visualising and managing risk and activity in a new and connected way, which helps bring together operations, maintenance, engineering, HSE and other functions.

“Digital transformation done right is not about digitalising the status quo. It’s an ongoing process that will dramatically improve the way companies operate. Proscient’s integrated and intelligent capabilities make it easy for organisations to accelerate their journey to digital operations and importantly, digital ROI, in a practical, rapid and tangible way.”
