Oman LNG contracted eVision to implement a digital permit to work (PTW) system to replace its custom PTW application. By fully integrating the PTW process into the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and establishing a high degree of automation, Oman LNG was looking to increase end-to-end control of operations at their liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Qalhat, Oman. Having a real-time view on the status of permitted maintenance work improves efficiency and the ability to manage risks. Next to the software, Oman LNG commissioned eVision to manage the control of work procedural reviews and training. Permit Vision is currently live at the plant in Qalhat since November 2015.
Oman Liquefied Natural Gas LLC (Oman LNG) is a joint venture company established by a Royal Decree in 1994 operating under the laws of the Sultanate of Oman. The company engages in the business of producing and selling liquefied natural gas (LNG), and its by-product, natural gas liquids (NGLs). It undertakes, directly or indirectly, project operations and related activities essential to liquefy, store, transport, and market Oman’s natural gas and deliver LNG to customers. The company’s activities contribute to the Government’s objective of diversifying the economy.
The company operates three liquefaction trains – two owned by Oman LNG LLC and one by Qalhat LNG SAOC – with a nameplate capacity of 10.4 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) at its plant in Qalhat, South Sharqiyah Governorate. On 1 September 2013, Oman LNG and Qalhat LNG integrated to form a single entity operating under the name of Oman LNG. The head office of Oman LNG resides in Muscat.
Oman LNG has an ambitious vision and dedication towards Corporate Social Responsibility as indicated by the recently launched Oman LNG Development Foundation. The Foundation addresses many areas of social development in Oman, but in general comprises a Community Fund targeting initiatives related to the Sur Community where its world-class, three-train liquefaction plant is located, a National Fund that covers a large swath of the company’s social development programmes across the nation; a Reserve Fund to address the sustainability and continuity of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility programmes; and finally a Centre of Excellence to develop lasting CSR initiatives through partnering, knowledge sharing, funding and investments.
