Offshore staff

CAMBRIDGE, UKStatoil has selected AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D) as its strategic 3D design software platform.

This will be an upgrade of Statoil’s existing design system, AVEVA PDMS. Benefits are said to include improved design efficiency, with no disruption anticipated to existing projects as a result of the migration.

The new system should assist the operator and its contractors in their efforts to reduce project schedules and re-work during the design and construction phase, AVEVA said.

Statoil has used AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA Global for more than 15 years to execute field development, maintenance and modification projects, and during the operation and revamp of its various facilities.

AVEVA E3D is said to provide comprehensive clash detection, high-definition laser survey and improved design and drawing capabilities.

The company is currently using AVEVA software on 52 brownfield and seven greenfield models plus the new Johan Sverdrup field development project in the North Sea.

Older plants such as Snøhvit LNG in the Barents Sea and the gas treatment facility at Kårstø have been converted to AVEVA PDMS.
