Safran Software Solutions announce a new partnership with Absoft, to optimise project and risk effectiveness in upstream

Safran Software Solutions (Safran), a premier provider of Enterprise Project and Risk Analysis (EPRA) software to support complex project delivery, has announced a new partnership with Absoft, the SAP specialists in upstream oil and gas, to deliver integrated planning solutions for operational excellence in upstream.

The partnership will enable Safran technology to form a seamless offering within Absoft’s SAP portfolio for upstream oil and gas, integrating with Plant Maintenance (PM) and the Project System (PS) modules. Together, Absoft and Safran will offer detailed planning and resource optimisation solutions for CAPEX project delivery, including major modifications and corrective maintenance to optimise shutdown and turnaround activities and minimise operational downtime. 

“Partnering with Absoft will allow oil and gas companies to manage all aspects of project governance from a single platform, without the need for expensive product integrations and additional reporting tools,” said Richard Wood, Safran VP of International Sales. “Our partnership with Absoft offers new alternatives for project teams that have historically relied on disparate project planning, scheduling and risk management solutions that restrict the ability to flexibly accommodate project change, early and often”.

For more than 13 years, Safran has supported major oil and gas companies in meeting international project and programme governance requirements using a single technology platform which includes comprehensive planning, risk management, earned value management and status reporting. Additionally, Absoft has over 24 years’ of delivering SAP best practice solutions for supply chain and maintenance operations in upstream, and the newly formed partnership with Safran will strengthen this offering within the project life cycle. 

Don Valentine, commercial director, Absoft also commented: “We are delighted to offer Safran products as part of our SAP upstream oil and gas portfolio. Our customers are extremely concentrated on driving operational efficiency, especially in the current tough market conditions. The combination of Absoft’s SAP based oil & gas process expertise and Safran’s world class planning & scheduling software allows us to enable our customers to maximise their workforce and asset productivity.”
