RasGas is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) producing company in Qatar. It is the second-biggest LNG producer in Qatar after Qatargas. RasGas operates seven LNG trains located in Ras Laffan Industrial City. RasGas further operates helium plants which produce 25% of the world’s helium, and makes Qatar the second largest helium exporter. After a strict and intense selection process, eVision was selected as Rasgas’s digital Permit to Work solution of choice.
Prior to the project, RasGas used a paper PTW system. At this point, the Operational management wished to improve hands on tool time, and HSE Management requested safer and more controlled maintenance execution. This was difficult, because the paper system did not generate overview of all the work performed, and consequently made conflict management of different jobs complicated. With the implementation of eVision’s ePTW system, RasGas has seen greatly improved throughput time of their PTW process, as well as improvements in the overall safety and safety awareness of the crew. Lastly, it provides operational management more control and overview of all the work carried out across their trains.
