Offshore drilling contractor ARO Drilling has deployed IFS Applications on 16 of its offshore drilling rigs. 

IFS, a software solutions company, said in a statement its applications helped ARO „to unify mission-critical business processes across its headquarters and fleet of 16 offshore drilling rigs.“ 

According to IFS, ARO Drilling, a JV between Saudi Aramco and drilling firm Valaris, was looking to consolidate its legacy business software, which was comprised of several disparate systems that were complex and difficult to scale.

"Following a competitive bid process involving several major ERP vendors, the company chose IFS Applications based on the platform’s industry-specific functionality and fully integrated architecture,“ IFS said, without disclosing the financial details of the deal. 

The IFS solution was rolled out to some 400 full users and 2,000 self-service users across ARO Drilling’s onshore and offshore operations. 

Per IFS, running a fully integrated solution ARO Drilling has gained a centralized view of the entire business, driving quicker and better-informed decision-making simplified its work processes, and increased efficiency and project profitability. ARO Drilling IT Director Anas Mosa said. 

“The implementation of IFS Applications was a major transformation for our corporation, and I am very pleased that the big-bang rollout project, which covered our 16 rigs, has been a great success. 

ARO is working in close collaboration with IFS’s team of industry experts and we are now running a true industry solution based on best-practice, standard functionality that empowers our staff to make the right decisions, anywhere and at any time.” 

Mehmood Khan, IFS Managing Director, Middle East, added: “There are few industries where project control and asset maintenance and safety are more critical than in the oil and gas sector. Working with some of the world’s leading offshore companies, we have developed a broad set of industry-specific capabilities that is unique in the market. We are very proud to announce ARO Drilling as the latest addition to our growing list of world-renowned oil and gas customers and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
