AVEVA has entered a multiyear agreement with Statoil ASA for AVEVA Everything3D™ (AVEVA E3D™).

AVEVA announced that it has entered a multiyear agreement with Statoil ASA for AVEVA Everything3D™ (AVEVA E3D™). The Norwegian Energy owner operator has selected AVEVA E3D to be its strategic 3D design software platform.

Following the migration to AVEVA E3D by a number of other companies, Statoil selected it as the natural upgrade of its existing design system, AVEVA PDMS™. Statoil will benefit from improved design efficiency and AVEVA E3D’s simple migration from AVEVA PDMS, means there will be no disruption to existing projects. This will give Statoil and its contractors the possibility of cutting project schedules and reducing rework during both the design and construction phase.

Statoil has been a strategic user of AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA Global™ for more than 15 years and acknowledges the value this software has brought when executing field development, maintenance and modification projects as well as during the operation and revamp of its portfolio of facilities.

Moving forward AVEVA E3D will give Statoil the possibility to meet the future demand of cost effective project execution, utilising its integration with high-definition laser survey capabilities, comprehensive clash detection and improved design and drawing capabilities. As existing users of AVEVA PDMS, it’s compatibility with AVEVA E3D, ensured that Statoil can migrate and access the 3D design for both new and existing facilities in a flexible and controlled manner.

‘Statoil has selected AVEVA E3D as its 3D solution of choice for both its greenfield and brownfield complex plant design projects’, said Helmut Schuller, Executive Vice President - Sales, AVEVA. ‘AVEVA’s unmatched design efficiency in brownfield is due to AVEVA E3D’s extremely tight integration with laser scanning capabilities, and its simple migration from AVEVA PDMS. The AVEVA E3D interface is very easy to use and extremely powerful so our customers are up-to-speed quickly with minimal training and no disruption to existing projects. Its ease of implementation and use gives Statoil access to AVEVA E3D’s multitude of benefits without the normal risks associated with new projects and long-term operations.’

Statoil is currently using AVEVA software on 52 Brownfield and 7 Greenfield models plus the new Johan Sverdrup field development project that today consists of 7 models. Older plants such as Snøhvit LNG Plant in the Barents Sea, the refinery at Mongstad in Norway and Kalundborg in Denmark, and the gas treatment facility at Kårstø have been converted to AVEVA PDMS. Statoil’s new strategy to standardise on AVEVA E3D offers the potential for significant project efficiencies in the design, operation and revamp of all Statoil facilities in the future.
