The challenge of the Deisohexanization Block project was to increase the
octane number of benzine and improve production safety. Difficulties included
synchronizing the work of a large team of specialists in different disciplines, in
different locations, on different net works, and using different plant design systems.
The institute used a combination of Bentley products – AutoPLANT, PlantSpace,
and Project Wise – to enable different departments (process, piping,
mechanical, civil) to work in parallel online as well as to integrate storage
and archiving of 2D drawings and 3D models. The 3D models accelerated
design time, eliminated errors and collisions during engineering, simplified
management approvals, and optimized construction.
KBR/EOS Oil & Gas Services Joint Venture
The north Rankin Redevelopment Project
The North Rankin Redevelopment Project will recover low-pressure gas from
the North Rankin and Perseus gas fields off Karratha, Western Australia.
The project involves installation of a second platform – North Rankin B
(NRB) – with gas compression facilities, low-pressure separators, utilities,
and accommodation. EOS Joint Venture has been contracted for the front-end
engineering and design, detailed design, and procurement management for the
NRB integrated deck float-over topsides and substructure.
To better coordinate information across the many parties and to improve
hand-over of information into operations, an information management strategy
was put in place that called for a single integrated information set throughout
the asset’s lifecycle. Project Wise Lifecycle Server’s data warehouse serves as
the central asset register for the whole NRB facility. The resulting benefits are
considerable, with the real-time information and other project tools being made
available on the project dashboard/portal, allowing enhanced decision making.
