Chevron uses AVEVA NET Portal (VNET) on world's largest FPSO to manage critical information Chevron has selected AVEVA to provide and implement its AVEVA NET Portal (VNET) solution to manage critical information for the operation of Agbami, which when completed will be the largest FPSO in the world. Located offshore Nigeria, the Agbami FPSO will produce 250,000 barrels of oil per day. The FPSO will inject water and associated gas for reservoir pressure management. It will also be equipped with the latest environmental protection technology. When operational, the FPSO will be managed from the Chevron offices in Lekki, Nigeria. The design and engineering work will be coordinated over a number of sites internally in Nigeria, with specialist contractors internationally and with the Agbami FPSO itself. Utilising AVEVA NET Portal (VNET), information is continually updated on the master hub and then synchronised with the replicated data onboard the FPSO which will include P&IDs, the 3D ship/facility model, documents, and other information ensuring that reliable and accurate data is available online at any time during operation. AVEVA NET Portal (VNET) is a web-enabled solution for the integration and collaborative use of all engineering information. 3D models, schematics, documents and data from any application can be accessed and navigated in context, with full intelligence, without needing the source application that originally created the data. Based on ISO 15926 and XML technology it provides a fully flexible and easyto-implement solution for the management of engineering data across the lifecycle of a project. AVEVA NET Portal (VNET) reduces the time it takes to find information, increases quality and consistency of data, and makes the information accessible across all stakeholders on a global basis, reducing risks and costs in the design, build and operation of large capital engineering projects. About Chevron in Nigeria Chevron is guided by the vision of being the energy company most admired for its people, partnership and performance. In the pursuit of this vision, Chevron has developed programs that foster sustainable development in all facets of the Nigerian society. This includes the development of 'Nigerian Content' to encourage the participation of Nigerian service providers and suppliers in the Oil & Gas industry. Participating in the Agbami Engineering Portal project is Nigerian engineering services company, Lonadek Consulting. Lonadek Consulting is the agent for AVEVA in Nigeria and provides training and support for AVEVA applications sold throughout Nigeria. Lonadek Consulting will be responsible for aspects of the delivery of the Agbami Engineering Portal system as well as ongoing support after it goes into operation in 2008. The Agbami FPSO The Agbami FPSO is one of the largest offshore floating structures built to date. The new build FPSO is 300 metres long and, with topsides weighing 38,000 tonnes, will be capable of processing 250,000 barrels per day of oil and 450 million standard cubic feet per day of gas, with a storage capacity of some 2.3 million barrels of oil. The Agbami FPSO will be spread moored in a water depth of approximately 4,500 feet. The Agbami field lies some 45 miles offshore Nigeria, approximately 220 miles south-east of Lagos. First oil from the FPSO is expected third quarter 2008, reaching full capacity within a year. AVEVA PIPELINE | 2008 Issue 1 | Page 19
