The deal, worth in excess of $1million over the course of the next two years, will see the Aberdeen-based company install its Sentinel PROTM solution across 11 offshore platforms in the Gulf as well as onshore facilities for a US major based in Qatar.

Already used in over 85% of the North Sea and a leading solution in the oil and gas industry worldwide, Sentinel PRO is a web-based safe system of work solution that manages frontline work execution by pulling together typically disparate procedures and legislative documentation, including risk assessment, isolations control and permit to work, into a single integrated system.

The contract marks a significant milestone for Petrotechnics in the Gulf and provides the foundation on which the company plans to build its burgeoning business in the Middle East. The first phase of the project, which is worth $600,000, is expected to go live by February 2010.

Iain Mackay, operations director at Petrotechnics, said: "The root cause of the majority of incidents can be traced back to poor quality of risk assessment, low hazard awareness of the workforce and poor control of hazards at the worksite. Sentinel-PRO incorporates our global experience of business process and effective work activity management, resulting in tangible safety and efficiency improvements.

"This contract recognises our ability to deliver quality and reliability as well as our capability to offer our customers innovative technology and business processes."
