Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), the largest oil and gas exploration and production company in Oman, has completed Phase 3 of its information management digital transformation journey with Hexagon.
This stage of the project included implementing Hexagon’s Digital Twin technology and SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO) platform to enable PDO’s maintenance and operations teams direct access to the digital twin across the complete business lifecycle.
Using Hexagon solutions enables PDO to digitally transform its information management and project collaboration by providing a single source of truth platform where all the lifecycle information is available in a centralized manner to more than 4,100 employees and contractors.
PDO chose Hexagon as the preferred solution provider because of the unique capabilities of the SmartPlant Enterprise platform: the platform is based on zero-footprint technology with full mobility features. This enables the project and operations teams, as well as contractors and vendors inside and outside the company network, to collaborate on projects in real-time. This on-prem cloud-based concept provides secure access while improving efficiency and productivity as errors, clashes and the need for rework is deducted.
Mohamed Mujaini, Engineering and Operation Information Management Functional Manager at PDO, said: “SPO is one of the strategic solutions for Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) to drive the digital transformation of projects and operations. Having Hexagon’s SPO platform has enabled us to transform our project collaboration and improve efficiency digitally. For example, the time needed to allocate tags has been reduced by 90 per cent, from days to a few minutes. Also, the time needed for handovers between contractors and project teams has decreased by 50 per cent.”
Jean-Francois Stephan, Executive Vice President, Hexagon’s PPM division, said: “Seeing how Hexagon solutions have enabled PDO to move forward with digital transformation is an inspiration. We are honored to collaborate with world-leading companies such as PDO in digitalization initiatives that facilitate safer and more cost-effective operations.”
Hexagon’s PPM division software solutions transform unorganized data into intelligent, actionable information that enables the smarter design, construction, operation and management of industrial projects including: oil and gas, power generation, AEC building infrastructure, metals & mining, shipbuilding, pharmaceutical, chemical and consumer goods. Throughout the lifecycle, Hexagon helps connect field to office, EPCs with owner operators and initial design through handover. –-Tradearabia News Service
