Sword’s knowhow








Data Management

Solid Information Management principles help duty holders operate efficiently and comply with their Safety Cases. We help customers streamline crucial activities such as engineering management of change, by ensuring that the information supporting that activity is correct and dependable. High quality engineering information reduces the need for surveys, offshore trips, and can help reduce spares inventory and improve procurement.

We are serving a rising demand for information services to support asset transfers, and new projects. Sword services address the whole cycle; from exploration & reservoir development, through drilling & completions, to capital projects, production & operations, facilities and engineering.


Document Management

We have many years expertise in this area, whether providing IM as a service, specifying and assisting in the selection of a document control system, or creating your procedures or processes. The interdependencies between engineering documents and data is valuable and we can help explore your options to connect and validate your critical document sets.


3D Model

We have experience in working with several clients in utilising their design 3D Models to support improved ways of working in the operational phases. 3D models can be the source of rich data, and this can be exported and shared in other applications such as your engineering data warehouse or maintenance management system.
