Maersk Oil to manage personnel with Vantage POB
Collabro to provide personnel logistics solution for Al Shaheen oilfield
Maersk Oil in Qatar is set to deploy Vantage POB personnel logistics solutions to manage staff across the Al Shaheen oilfield.
The Vantage solution, which will be delivered along with services by worldwide distributor Collabro, is a web-based system to manage Personnel on Board (POB), which enables users to efficiently monitor and control the movements of personnel to and from offshore facilities and also onshore sites such as process plants.
Kevin Walker, Vantage POB product manager at Collabro, said: "We are very pleased that Maersk Oil Qatar has selected Vantage POB to provide comprehensive personnel logistics management across all assets in the field. This is a significant milestone for our team, as it marks our first major contract in the Middle East and this development is already attracting great interest from other clients situated within the Arabian Gulf. Positively, we are seeing an increased number of global oil and gas operators underlining their commitment to efficient health, safety and personnel logistics management. The fact that Vantage POB has been tried and tested in the UKCS, for the past ten years, gives the product a lot of global credibility. We are looking forward to accelerating our international expansion into a number of foreign markets over the next year, as this trend continues."
Collabro Limited offers Vantage POB under an exclusive worldwide distributor agreement with the owner of the software - CGI IT UK Limited.
