Integrating Operations with AVEVA NET How a major Korean EPC is making AVEVA NET the foundation of its Information Integration facility Daewoo Engineering & Construction (Daewoo E&C) is an important Korean EPC in the oil & gas industry. It has a strong presence in Africa and the Middle East, being responsible for many LNG facilities in Libya, Nigeria, Algeria, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. The company's work across such widely distributed assets triggered its decision to invest in AVEVA NET to support the integration of its business processes. Daewoo E&C's decision to base its Information Integration System on AVEVA technology followed a long and successful history of using AVEVA design and visualisation products on its projects. The company had first used AVEVA NET on the Nigerian Gbaran-Ubie integrated oil & gas project and had been impressed by its performance. 'The ability to associate document lists and tags, and to export data according to the standards required by the Owner Operator, was extremely helpful,' said Junho Yoo, Site Handover Manager, Plant System Management Team, Daewoo E&C. AVEVA NET and the Otumara project Because of this positive experience, Daewoo turned again to AVEVA NET to support the handover and operations phases of the Otumara project in Nigeria. 'During the benchmarking process AVEVA used a sample of Daewoo's own data to demonstrate the superior data integration capabilities of AVEVA NET's open architecture approach,' explained DoYoung Lee, Senior Manager, Technical Services, AVEVA. 'Showing that we could easily and intelligently extract data from Daewoo's central repository, regardless of the data's source and format, and deliver it directly into the OO's Computerised Maintenance Management System in a structure that the customer required, convinced Daewoo that AVEVA NET was the right product for them. It was AVEVA NET's ease of use and flexibility in enabling Daewoo to meet its customers' exact data handover requirements on schedule that won AVEVA this important deal.' Nigeria is currently Africa's biggest oil producer and its Otumara processing facility serves three oil fields in the western Niger Delta, Otumara, Saghara and Opuama. The EPC contract for a gas compression and liquefaction plant had been awarded to Daewoo's Nigerian subsidiary, in October 2010. The OO had problems integrating with the many systems that Daewoo E&C and its client were using. Daewoo E&C realised that this could prevent them from delivering a consolidated, high-integrity dataset that met their client's standards at the point of handover. continued...
