Datum360 lands major BP deal

Teesside oil and gas software firm Datum360 has landed a major deal to supply its ‘SaaS’ data management software to BP.

The deal will see Datum360 supply software to help standardise engineering information for the largest oilfield project in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian basin.  

Headquartered in Teesside, the software specialist boasts offices around the globe, including Kuala Lumpur and Houston.

BP’s Category B projects cover three major oilfields in the Azeri sector. These oilfields span over seven platforms including Chirag, Central Azeri and Deepwater Gunashli and have transformed Azerbaijan into a major global energy supplier whilst also redefining Europe’s energy map.

Steve Wilson, co-founder and CEO of Datum360, said: “We are extremely pleased to have delivered our SaaS in such a short space of time.

“Within our sectors, companies such as ours are notoriously known to have lengthy implementation from pilot stages - in some cases with implementation spanning from months into years - leaving owner operators with spiralling costs.

“We are going against the industry norm and successfully demonstrating with each contract win that we can deploy our robust, quality systems in little to no time.

“On top of this – once deployed - our SaaS is proven to deliver fast, accurate and reliable engineering information ensuring owner operators save time and money in asset intensive programmes.

“It is estimated that an engineer can spend up to 60% of their time moving and organising data on such projects. With our system, we have significantly reduced this time for the team at BP.”

Established in 2009, Datum360 has a team of over 20 specialists operating across the world.

It's clients include most of the world’s major oil companies such as Maersk Oil, Total, BP and GDF Suez (now Engie).
