AGSL to protect software at TAQA oil field

March 22, 2016 - Asset Guardian Solutions Ltd (AGSL has been awarded a contract by TAQA to protect software at TAQA oil fields in the UK. A a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, TAQA’s UK operations include five platforms that produce from 13 fields spread across the Northern North Sea and the Central North Sea.

As a result of this contract award, AGSL is providing its Asset Guardian software management toolset to TAQA for use on its North Sea offshore assets.

Asset Guardian can ensure that backups of new and modified software are securely stored and easy to access from any location, making certain that effective version control is in place.  This reduces associated downtime caused by a potential process system software failure.  As part of the project, AGSL is also helping TAQA to electronically migrate its existing process control software files and data into Asset Guardian.

 “We are proud to have been selected by TAQA to provide them with our method of securing and managing process control software assets,” said Sam Mackay, Chief Executive Officer of Asset Guardian Solutions Ltd. “We look forward to working with them.”
