Asset information implementation wins award

December 20th, 2017, Published in Articles: PositionIT

BP Oman has won the BIM Advancements in Asset Performance of Utilities and Industrial Facilities category in Bentley’s Be Inspired Awards programme. The Khazzan Project in Oman is one of BP’s seven major projects in 2017, and started its production in September 2017. The project was selected as a finalist from more than 400 nominations of projects around the world, and as the winner out of the three finalists in its category. BP Oman has created a central information store (CIS) to manage and maintain information needed for operations, including all documents, tags, associated metadata and 3D model visualisation.

Overview of the Khazzan Project.

The CIS maintains the integrity of BP asset information to provide an accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive digital baseline for configuration. It shortens approval times when changes are required and ensures the latest information is always available. It also provides a master set of information that supports information sharing across both the project and operations teams. The CIS supports the BP operations in Oman and its support offices, as well as certain third parties with whom they contract work.
