It’s been a great start to the year for OPEX as we welcome yet another new customer this month, a leading independent E&P company who operates a number of assets in the UKCS.

Ahead of going live with our X-PAS™ Smart Production service, over the next four weeks our data scientists will work with the operator’s existing operational data to build a number of predictive models to allow our team to accurately predict the future performance and behaviour of the gas compression system on one of their legacy assets.

This continues to build on our track record across multiple gas compression systems.

An existing customer has extended the X-PAS™ Smart Production service to another of their North Sea assets. As part of the new agreement, our team of data scientists have built a series of bespoke predictive models to continuously monitor and analyse the gas compression and water injection systems on the installation.

Following this extension, OPEX are now delivering predictive analysis services to multiple systems across the customer’s entire UK North Sea operating portfolio.

Predictive Analytics for Oil and Gas


This year the team at OPEX chose to support the Cash for Kids Mission Christmas appeal which aims to ensure that every child receives a gift this Christmas.

From all areas of the business a large number of toys, games and books were donated. Chris from our data science team dropped off the gifts at the local collection point.

The appeal was a great success this year. More than 9,000 gifts will be distributed to children throughout our local area and a total of 369,000 gifts were collected throughout the UK.

We would like to wish all of our customers and industry stakeholders a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.



Members of Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy visited OPEX today (30th October 2018) to learn more about our X-PAS™ Predictive Analysis Service and the work we are doing with oil & gas operators in the UKCS and Gulf of Mexico

The delegation, led by the Head of the Norwegian Oil & Gas Department, was organised in conjunction with the Oil & Gas Authority.

During their visit, our team of data scientists demonstrated the X-PAS™ service in action and highlighted how the insights generated enable our customers to eliminate production loss, cut maintenance costs and improve safety.

Following their time at OPEX the delegation visited the Oil & Gas Technology Centre to discover more about the new technology projects that are kicking off in the region.


As the X-PAS™ services continues to roll out to new customers, assets and systems we are pleased to announce that an existing customer has extended the use of the service to cover all critical production systems on another one of their legacy assets.

Under the new agreement, both X-PAS™ Smart Production and X-PAS™ Smart Maintenance services will be implemented asset-wide.

The roll out will involve close collaboration with the customer’s support teams and is directly focused on the reduction of production losses and maintenance costs.

X-PAS Smart Production and X-PAS Smart Maintenance


The X-PAS™ service is set to launch this month on an existing customer's legacy asset in the Outer Moray Firth. This is the second field in the Moray Firth to adopt the service.

The initial focus for the customer, a global oil and gas operator, is to prevent system outages on the Power Generation system and maximise recovery.

OPEX will work as an extension of the customer's support team to extract new value from existing data sources to provide insights and recommendations on a continuous basis.

The XPAS Service


We were delighted to welcome Paul Wheelhouse, Scottish Government Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands, to OPEX during his recent visit to Aberdeen when our team had the opportunity to discuss how the Scottish Government can support the industry to unlock value through the adoption of data analytics and digital technologies. The Minister was joined by Scott Bradley, Head of Oil & Gas Policy at the Scottish Government and David Clarke.

Jamie Bennett, OPEX Group CEO commented: “We welcomed the opportunity to meet with the Scottish Government team to brief them on the impact that digital technologies and data analytics is having on the industry and the work we are doing with oil and gas operating companies to digitally enable their operations.

“The industry’s digital transformation presents significant value to the local and national economy and will lead to the creation of new jobs, particularly in the areas of data science and analysis.”

Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands, Paul Wheelhouse, said: “I am delighted to have had the opportunity to visit the OPEX Group. They are a dynamic company that is very well placed to play an important role in helping data driven innovation and reducing unplanned maintenance costs for producers and minimising health and safety risks. I was very impressed with their energy, their ingenuity and their drive to succeed in establishing the standard for digitally enabled oil and gas operations.

“I was particularly impressed with how they have pioneered new ways to help the oil and gas industry extract more value from existing data with measurable, tangible results. If we are to deliver the benefits of digital transformation across the industry, we need companies like OPEX in Scotland.

“In my view, innovation remains crucial to the oil and gas sector for maximising economic recovery and sustainably reducing costs, for driving exports and sales within the supply chain, and ultimately securing the long-term sustainability of the Sector in Scotland and the UK.”


OPEX Group has announced a significant investment in a new headquarters in Aberdeen, Scotland, to support the organisation’s ambitious growth plans and enable closer collaboration with customers.

With a relocation date set during Q2 2019, the 10,000 square foot facility, located on Carden Place in the West End of Aberdeen, will accommodate over 100 employees and house state-of-the-art digital infrastructure.

“This is an exciting time for OPEX and marks a significant milestone for the company,” explains CEO Jamie Bennett. “OPEX are setting the industry standard for digitally enabled operations across the UKCS, helping oil and gas operators to reduce lifting costs by extracting more value from their data.

“These new headquarters are part of our continual investment in our capabilities and will allow us to respond to the demand from both new customers and existing customers who are now scaling the X-PAS™ service across their offshore operations.”

New Headquarters for OPEX Group


As OPEX continues to grow we are delighted to announce that we have entered into a multi-asset contract with another new customer in the UKCS. Under the agreement, our X-PAS™ Smart Production service will be rolled out to production critical systems across the customer’s legacy assets.

Over the next four weeks our data scientists will work with the operator’s existing operational data to build a number of predictive models to allow our team to accurately predict the future performance and behaviour of the selected systems.

Data analysis will begin during October when the X-PAS™ team will work alongside the operator’s on and offshore teams on a continuous basis to help them make the right interventions at the right time to avoid system trips and production losses.
