Rowan Companies: Mobile offshore data management
Manual, paper-based business made tracking process impossible
Automation for offshore contract drilling management
Online and offline mobile updates to work order status
The Business Issue
Rowan is the largest offshore drilling company in the world, providing contract drilling services to the international oil and gas industry. The company’s fleet, which includes 16 ultra-deep-water drill ships, 12 jack-up rigs, and 53 semisubmersibles, is among the most technologically advanced in the industry.
Rowan managed all of their rigs with paper-based processes, making it almost impossible to track progress and safety onshore. Workers on the rigs had to return to the office frequently for updates to their work order status.
Rowan chose Pega to deliver a management application providing data replication from rigs to onshore. With the Pega Platform™, Rowan now has a mobile application that integrates with the company’s land-based business solutions. Only Pega could provide a solution with online and offline capabilities – a critical feature for managing oil rig data from remote locations.
With the Pega Platform™, Rowan sees data replicated from offshore in minutes; more than five times faster than other solutions that had been considered.
With Pega’s rig management software, Rowan can:
- Better monitor safety and worker progress on remote rigs
- Increase level of global customer service
- See data replicated from offshore in minutes; more than 5X faster than other solutions considered
