Savanna Energy benefits from portability of MEX

Supplier: MEX - Maintenance Software By: MEX Maintenance Experts

Savanna Energy is a Canadian owned on-shore oil and gas drilling company that was established in 2001.

Whilst Canada is the base of operations and houses the majority of the rigs, Savanna Energy has a strong presence in Australia with most of the fleet concentrated in Coal Seam Gas fields in southern Queensland and in the Condamine Basin in north eastern segment of South Australia. Savanna Energy’s Australian division head office is situated Toowoomba, Queensland with smaller offices in Brisbane and Miles.

MEX is deployed to the Australian division across all drilling rigs, vehicles, and offices. It is currently operating on our fleet of 17 Drilling, Workover and Flush-by rigs. We therefore take advantage of the portability of MEX by having all our maintenance staff in the field using the iOS App on their iPhones or iPads, as well as the web app on intrinsically safe tablets.

We chose to host our data with MEX due to Savanna’s corporate IT systems being run from Calgary, Canada. The differing time zones resulted in IT issues taking several days to be resolved which heavily impact on our day to day operations.

“Having MEX support in the same time zone was a massive advantage and one of the deciding factors in our decision to get hosted.”
