Sword CTSpace, a global provider of document management and collaboration workflow applications for the construction and engineering industries, has announced that the latest release of FusionEnterprise will be able to combine engineering content from separate EMC Documentum® and Microsoft SharePoint® 2010 systems.

At 11.15am on 15 April, Sword CTSpace VP products Tim Fleet will deliver a presentation to the conference on the ability of Sword CTSpace solutions to reduce the costs and risks associated with managing the technical content of an oil and gas asset. Tim Fleet will discuss engineering document control, project and programme collaboration management, reducing risk and ensuring compliance, and specialist industry asset management solutions.

The OGTF brings together all the major oil and gas technology buyers and sellers in the EMEA markets. International oil giants including Gazprom, Petrobras, and LUKOIL attended the 2010 forum. Technology sellers attending the conference include major software vendors, parts suppliers, and safety consultants.

On its website, the OGTF presents itself as “the most effective platform for building continuous partnerships at a technical and strategic level”. The conference is described as “an invitation-only event attracting a select group of C-level executives across the industry, including VPs and directors of contract, exploration, drilling, production, procurement, subsea, and business development”.

Tim Reynolds, Sword CTSpace UK business unit director, said: “We’re very excited to be attending the OGTF this year. With our state-of-the-art, cloud-based engineering collaboration solution FusionLive, and our facility maintenance and records management-focused ECM-based solution FusionEnterprise, we have more to offer than ever before to oil and gas organisations aiming to improve the efficiency and regulatory compliance of their projects and operations.”
