How Woodside deployed AVEVA NET Woodside achieves breakeven 3.4 years after commencement – a substantial Return on Investment over a 10-year period is forecasted. Woodside is one of Australia's top ten companies by market capitalisation, and the nation's largest publicly traded oil & gas exploration and production company. The company operates Australia's largest resources project, the North West Shelf Venture in Western Australia, producing about 40 per cent of Australia's oil & gas. Woodside implemented AVEVA NET in 2004, in order to improve their management of new and legacy engineering data, initially across four different installations. The information stakes were high, although AVEVA NET was widely used by Woodside's subcontractors and service providers, and was thus already a proven brand. The implementation was later expanded across several other plants, platforms and FPSOs. AVEVA NET was chosen because Woodside understood that the application integrates with industry-standard business and engineering applications, providing a single access point for 98% of Woodside's engineering data.It delivers information from a number of Engineering Data Management (EDM) applications, as illustrated below. Engineering Excellence Awards: AVEVA NET's role in the winning project In September 2009, Woodside's AUD 1.6 billion Angel gas processing platform located 120 kilometres off Karratha won the overall award at the '2009 WA Engineering Excellence Awards'. The Angel project represents a first for the Woodside operated North West Shelf Venture (NWSV). The gas processing facility was designed to be not normally manned (NNM). It is powered and remotely controlled via a subsea cable from the NWSV's North Rankin A platform (NRA) 50 kilometres away. In the Awards submission, Woodside identified several key factors for the success of the Angel platform. These included: • Well-planned and executed engineering phases; no engineering delay to procurement or construction • Emphasis on effective communications both within the team and with interfacing parties • Documentation and handover requirements identified early, including Asset Lifecycle Information System (ALIS) and associated visualisation portal (AVEVA NET). | AVEVA PIPELINE | 2010 Issue 1
