Asset Management Services Extends Contract with Oniqua

Anchorage-based Asset Management Services (AMS), a subsidiary of Advanced Supply Chain International (ASCI), announced the signing of a three-year contract extension with Oniqua Enterprise Analytics. This new contract pertains specifically to a three-tier distribution of Oniqua’s OAS-Inventory software suite by AMS, and includes North American and Caribbean distribution to the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. The contract extension follows a prior three-year distribution contract between Oniqua and AMS, wherein AMS brought significant ROI to customers in the oil and gas industry.

As a distributor for Oniqua products, AMS will install, configure and manage the OAS-Inventory software for its customers. This application delivers a tremendous return on investment by right-sizing inventory based on maintenance, inventory and procurement data, and applying leading techniques for inventory optimization. The optimization algorithm has demonstrated proven inventory reduction results of 15-25%.

“We are pleased to extend the successful relationship we have forged with AMS over the past three years,” said Oniqua CEO Andy Hill. “AMS has delivered sales wins from some of the world’s largest oil and gas organizations and proven their capability to deliver substantial savings to these customers through the implementation of our software.”

ASCI Inks Agreement with BP Alaska

Advanced Supply Chain International (ASCI) and BP Exploration Alaska (BPXA) have signed a new contract for supply chain management services. The contract will replace an existing agreement that expires next month, under which ASCI has provided supply chain management support to BPXA since 1999.

Supply chain management is the process by which goods are acquired, transported, received, stored and delivered to their ultimate destination. The ASCI contract scope includes assistance with procurement, warehouse operations, inventory control, vendor documentation management and infield delivery of materials. The services will be performed on Alaska’s North Slope and in Anchorage by approximately 180 ASCI employees. The agreement also includes the use and support of ASCI’s innovative suite of Web-based e-commerce software tools.

Under the new agreement, ASCI will work closely with BPXA to support its supply chain management organization. Scott Hawkins, ASCI President, said: “This agreement aligns us well with BPXA’s new strategic directions and positions us to serve BPXA’s needs in the years to come. We are grateful to BPXA for their support over the years. We look forward to helping our valued customers continue to ‘raise the bar’ on supply chain management performance.”

Honeywell, Shell Sign Automation Agreement

Honeywell has signed a global five-year agreement to be a Main Automation Contractor (MAC) for Shell. The Global Framework Agreement is part of Shell’s long-term MAC strategy to maximize production while lowering total operating costs by equipping its worldwide facilities with integrated process automation technology.

As a MAC, Honeywell will design automation and safety systems that will help Shell meet world energy demands in an economically and environmentally responsible manner. For more than three decades, Honeywell has served as a MAC on hundreds of Shell projects. Currently, Honeywell is working on three of Shell’s largest projects:

  • The new gas to liquids (GTL) plant in Qatar;
  • The Athabasca Oil Sands Project; and
  • The expansion of Shell’s Port Arthur Refinery.

“Honeywell’s performance in helping us execute these highly complex projects was one factor in selecting the company for this work,” said Ronaldo Marques, Shell’s Enterprise Group Categories Manager for Equipment. “This agreement allows us to provide consistent global delivery of the highest quality technology with best-in-class strategic support at sites around the world.”

By designing their production facilities with integrated process automation systems, manufacturers can improve overall plant safety, reliability, efficiency and sustainability while ensuring critical information gets to the right people at the right time. Using integrated systems such as Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Safety Manager solutions, plant personnel at all levels get a better picture of how various process subsystems affect the entire operation. Plant operators, for example, can make better decisions in the control room when systems like Experion tell them how a specific process is affecting the rest of the plant.

Designing a new facility with an integrated system allows manufacturers to plan more accurately how to integrate new technology in the future. This saves money in the long term by preventing systems from becoming obsolete.

“More and more, our clients want our early engagement to design integrated process automation systems from the ground up because it’s a smart strategy for protecting an asset’s long-term viability and the business’ profitability,” said Norm Gilsdorf, president of Honeywell Process Solutions. “Shell recognizes this opportunity, and this MAC agreement is a proactive step in maximizing its global production while providing a technological path forward as needs change.”
