Business Critical Asset Management Upgrade for BP

Business Critical Asset Management Upgrade for BP

BP operates the BP-Husky refinery at Toledo in the United States in a joint venture with Husky Energy. The refinery processes up to 160,000 barrels of crude oil per day and provides the Midwestern United States with gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, propane and asphalt.

The Challenge

BP-Husky Toledo (BP-H) had been using version 4.1 of IBM Maximo to manage key refinery maintenance activities for nearly 20 years. However, the system had reached end-of-life and was difficult to support.

BP-H needed to upgrade to IBM Maximo version 7.6 and standardise business processes across BP-H with its Cherry Point refinery in Washington, which could then become a template and further extended throughout its global downstream business.

The Solution

BP and Husky Energy formally engaged Denver to complete the project. On 24 June 2017, the joint venture partners established a go-live date of 24 July 2018 and agreed a budget.

We leveraged our skills and experience to complete the project on time and within budget.

The Outcome

The client has branded the project a success due to the mutual respect and close working relationships between Denver and BP-H team members, our transparency, high quality training materials, experience and change management skills.
