“As we grew, our existing databases could not meet the company’s needs,” said Sask. Chief Inspector Kim Bachek. “We needed something that could scale up to handle more data, more users and workflows to support MOC and preventative maintenance.” -Whitecap Resources Inc.

With every acquisition, Whitecap’s asset integrity solution faced an influx of new information and new users. Limitations arose, like the system’s inability to handle complex assets and its lack of reporting tools, which made verifying inspection schedules a painstaking task. Whitecap needed a more effective way of storing and retrieving asset data, scheduling maintenance and inspections, and collaborating online as a team.
Uphill battle training new users
Onboarding users took too long, complex interfaces confused users and workarounds became routine
The costs of adding user licenses and importing asset data became prohibitively expensive
Workflows without the flow
Online processes that involved multiple users stalled due to a lack of triggers and notifications
Without the ability to use mobile devices, getting field data into the system involved twice the work
Reporting to regulatory bodies
Limited tools made for tedious work ensuring the accuracy of inspection schedules and reports
Whitecap outlined their ideal asset integrity management system (AIMS) with goals to lower costs, eliminate barriers, improve data integrity and introduce smart devices in the field.
- Field Mobility
Skip the data entry and save money by having users do inspections and complete work via tablet/phone
- Work order management
Go beyond simple task creation, allowing for prioritization, scheduling and automation of PMs
- Smooth MOC processing
A workflow that moves things along from one party to another with notifications and proper safeguards
- Skid packages
A record type specific to documenting a collection of related equipment on the same skid
- More of a one-stop shop
A solution that brings AIMS, regulatory compliance, WOs and change management all under one roof
“I’m an old dog from the old school but, for me, the software is very, very intuitive.” – Kim Bachek, Chief Inspector
Looking forward: Whitecap plans to roll out additional inspections, bring in vendors, and kick off mobile auditing of skids and equipment.
