Spanning Canada and the United States, North America is home to a plethora of major industry players, including Exxon Mobil Corp, the world's second-largest publicly traded company after Royal Dutch Shell. The region's oil and natural gas industry is focused on developing oil sands, deepwater gulf prospects and increasingly profitable shale deposits stretching across the continent. One of the premier sweet spots for deepwater exploration, the Gulf of Mexico is the largest body of water indenting the U.S. continental coastline, and its subsea developments continue to spark both national and international interest.
Asset Management is the process or systems that monitors and maintains valuable assets for a company. In oil and gas, this often includes the practice of managing assets to achieve the greatest return, or the process of maintaining facilities to provide the best possible service to users. Using specialist systems, the Asset Manager will analyse oil and gas operations, to identify ways to reach the desired levels of production, conform with environmental regulations and minimise outages.
