AVEVA has announced that it has entered a multiyear agreement with Statoil for AVEVA Everything3D (E3D). Statoil has selected AVEVA E3D to be its strategic 3D design software platform, upgrading from its existing design system, AVEVA PDMS.
Statoil will benefit from improved design efficiency and AVEVA E3D’s migration from AVEVA PDMS will not disrupt 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.
Moving forward AVEVA E3D will give Statoil the possibility to meet the future demand of cost effective project execution, utilizing its integration with high-definition laser survey capabilities, comprehensive clash detection and improved design and drawing capabilities. As existing users of AVEVA PDMS, which is compatible with AVEVA E3D, Statoil can migrate and access the 3D design for both new and existing facilities in a flexible and controlled manner.
Statoil is currently using AVEVA software on 52 brownfield and seven greenfield models plus the new Johan Sverdrup field development project that today consists of seven 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 standardize on AVEVA E3D offers the potential for significant project efficiencies in the design, operation and revamp of all Statoil facilities in the future.
