HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC), the largest offshore oil and gas producer in China, has selected Intergraph SmartPlant Foundation to manage the engineering information of its offshore platforms and oil fields as part of CNOOC’s Engineering Digital Information System (EDIS) project.
CNOOC sought to set up a sophisticated information management system and selected Intergraph SmartPlant Foundation because the company determined that it is the most advanced and technically superior solution available in the market. SmartPlant Foundation will be used to develop EDIS, which will manage the engineering information of 33 offshore platforms for three of CNOOC’s four oil fields, located in Tianjin, Shenzhen and Zhangjiang. SmartPlant Foundation’s data-centric capabilities and single-source-of-information concept will support all of the company’s requirements, including the management and implementation of engineering changes for enhanced safety, improved quality of data and increased productivity and efficiency.
“We are extremely confident that our EDIS project, built on SmartPlant Foundation, will be successful,” said Mr. Jin Xiaojian, general manager of the Engineering & Construction department at CNOOC. “Intergraph has a highly experienced and knowledgeable SmartPlant Foundation implementation team in China to support our EDIS project, and we expect to expand this project in the future to include the rest of our existing offshore platforms.”
