Win Story: Newcross Petroleum Awards UniFi Channel Partner, Infrest, Key EAM Deal

Customer: Newcross Petroleum Limited (NPL) 

Industry: Oil and Gas 

Nature of service:  UniFi EAM Implementation and SunSystems Optimisation 

Details in brief: Infrest, a UniFi Channel Partner, celebrates a new partnership with Newcross Petroleum. Tasked with implementing UniFi EAM and optimising SunSystems, Infrest is set to elevate NPL’s asset management capabilities. 


Newcross Petroleum, a key player in the dynamic Nigerian oil and gas sector, recently fortified its financial capabilities by upgrading its SunSystems software. In tandem with their ambitious growth plans, the company recognised the need for an advanced Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution. Following meticulous evaluation, Newcross Petroleum strategically chose UniFi and Infrest as their partners, acknowledging their profound expertise in navigating the intricacies of the Nigerian oil and gas landscape. 

Newcross diligently assessed UniFi EAM and Hexagon EAM, ultimately determining that UniFi EAM not only met all their requirements but also instilled confidence that it would empower them to optimise their return on investment (ROI) from their assets. 

UniFi EAM, with its user-friendly interface, multiple use cases and advanced features, was the perfect fit for their needs.  

UniFi EAM provides the Nigerian oil and gas company with a collection of next-gen Apps to manage the entire lifecycle of its assets, from planning, budgeting, procurement, project management, performance, maintenance, compliance, and risk management to disposal.

Following the implementation and configuration of UniFi EAM, Newcross Petroleum will benefit from the following:
