NPCC chooses Aveva Plant for gas project
Dubai, June 3, 2009
National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC), a global oil and gas engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, has chosen Aveva Plant for use on its part of a major integrated gas development project.
Aveva Plant, a set of integrated applications for plant engineering, design and design management, was chosen by NPCC for its part of the Habshan Platform offshore facilities (IGD-HAP) for Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco), a pioneering oil and gas producer.
NPCC, whose fabrication facilities are located at Mussafah near Abu Dhabi city, is a leading offshore EPC contractor in UAE, Qatar, Iran, Saudi Arabia, India and other neighbouring Gulf and Middle Eastern countries. NPCC provides its clients with total EPC services in the development of offshore and onshore oil and gas fields.
NPCC first used Aveva PDMS, which is part of the Aveva Plant portfolio, on Adma-Opco's project comprising two new well head towers located in the Umm Shaif field.
Now, they are extending their use of PDMS on the IGD-HAP project, which consists of an offshore gas processing platform that performs gas separation and dehydration. The project also includes a remote flare tower, a 46" main gas line to Das island and interconnecting bridges between IGD-HAP and the existing Umm Shaif Super complex.
Aveva PDMS has multi-discipline capabilities proven on many large offshore and onshore projects, from front end design through to construction engineering. NPCC Engineering utilises this state-of-the-art industry standard software in various disciplines for the execution of projects.
"We are going to use PDMS throughout all phases of the project,” said Dr Ahmad Kurdali, engineering director of NPCC.
“After the 3D modeling and design, drawings and isometrics will be generated by PDMS. We will also be integrating the PDMS model with the structural steel detailing software to optimise the production of fabrication drawings," he added.
Louay Dahmash, vice president of Aveva Middle East said: "We are delighted to continue working with NPCC. Once again Aveva's unique technology has proven itself and we look forward to providing more services to NPCC in the future." – TradeArabia News Service
