Total E&P NL selected eVision to implement digital Permit to Work and Shift Handover software across all of its offshore assets. Since 2015, Total has expanded its scope to a full global rollout of eVision’s Permit to Work software across all its assets.
Total is the world’s fourth-largest oil and gas company and second-largest solar energy operator, with total operations across 130 countries. The company produces, refines and markets oil, and manufactures petrochemicals. Total are also a major player in natural gas.
It is Total’s ambition to be recognized as the benchmark for safety, and to implement the best possible standards and technologies to their facilities. Therefore, Total required a single, optimal standard for their Permit to Work, isolation management, and risk assessment procedures, which, at the same time, allowed for compliance to local and affiliate-specific requirements to be incorporated. Using a single process for all assets means that Total has more control and awareness, while information and knowledge can be shared across platforms and sites. This simplifies the decision-making processes in the organisation, creating efficiencies for higher productivity.
In mid-2017, eVision implemented its leading Permit to Work system on Total’s CLOV FPSO. The go-live of CLOV is a major milestone in the project, says Simon Kennedy, eVision Chief Operating Officer: “After a long partnership with Total in the North Sea, we are delighted with the successful go-live of Permit Vision at Total’s flagship CLOV FPSO. This major milestone marks the start of the global rollout of Permit Vision at Total, and I look forward too many more successful go-lives in the coming months as the rollout progresses.”
The global rollout of Permit Vision across all Total E&P Upstream sites covers more than 26 Assets. New assets will be rolled out continuously over 2017 and 2018, starting with three additional assets to go live in Angola.
