Kent developed software


Risk-Based Assessment and Inspection

A web-based environment for all assets, across multiple disciplines.



A web environment for managing anomalies and associated data (assessment, photos, etc.) and integrated with an inspection workpack to provide a streamlined inspection process.



A modern asset weight management solution, providing suitable control, traceability and reporting, aligned with ISO 19901-05.


Asset Integrity Management Toolkit

A suite of tools to streamline the day-to-day integrity management processes and tasks and improve efficiency.


Enhanced Heat Maps

A solution for displaying relevant data on an asset’s plot plan layouts (e.g.: inspections, anomalies) for better visualisation and understanding of risk.



A plant capacity assessment tool, running various production cases and integrating outputs with custom capacity model calculations for further analysis and debottlenecking of a plant.


Carbon Intensity Reduction Tool

This digital solution interfaces with the existing asset process models to allow the team to model the whole lifecycle of an asset including changes to production profiles, economics, or plant changes to quantify all the emissions from the plant through life.


Motion Monitoring System

A fully integrated system for collecting, processing sensor data and performing spectral analysis to detect a shift in the natural frequency of a platform that could indicate potential brace failures in near real-time.


Virtual Metering

A standalone service that integrates live plant data from an operational historian with simulation software to determine and publish new properties.


MODOT Multi Objective Design Optimisation Tool

MODOT is an optimisation tool that has revolutionised our design of offshore wind projects. Using advanced optimisation algorithms, we can produce design iterations in days rather than months to add value from the start and can save clients 1000s of tonnes of steel across a wind farm through efficient designs.


Virtual Wind Farm Tool

A standalone service that assesses, optimises and iterates offshore wind farm designs and layouts to assess CapEx, OpEx and Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE). This tool brings value whether used when bidding and assessing lease areas or understanding layouts or installation phasing. Using our catalogue of available date or bespoke information provided by Clients, this tool will quickly and visually provide feedback on the available options.

Reduce GHG emissions with no initial CAPEX

Carbon Intensity Reduction Tool

Our Carbon Intensity Reduction Tool could help you to assess and reduce GHG emissions with no initial CAPEX.

This targeted technology is integrated with capacity and process modelling tools that allow us to measure changes in greenhouse gas emissions over an oil and gas asset’s field life. Enabling us to test and evaluate how operational or physical modifications to a process could affect an asset’s emissions.
