ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc.
The CPAI Managed Environment program is designed to provide cost and project execution savings through a standard environment for design in
which three EPCs can execute and deliver projects valued at roughly $500 million per year.
Goals of the program included: maximizing data
re-use wherever possible; standardizing specifications and deliverables;
ensuring data consistency, correctness, and completeness; and managing data across the facility lifecycle.
The entire AutoPLANT suite was
used in this project. Bentley
Professional Services assisted in creating a custom CPAI environment of
arctic specifications and standard
details that would work in conjunction with the AutoPLANT suite without compromising the ability to
upgrade the core AutoPLANT platform as needed.
The program embraces three initiatives:
The managed environment establishes a common AutoPLAN T work environment customized
to CPAI arctic projects in terms of catalogs,
specifications, reports, drawings and other
deliverables and operating seamlessly among
three participating EPCs.
Material masters extract standard commodity
numbers from the existing CPAI arctic procurement catalog (SAP) and assign these to the
AutoPLANTcatalog to ensure consistency and
accuracy in the subsequent derivation of piping
specifications, design, and material take-offs.
eWarehouse base configuration from which
AutoPLANT generated project data would be
checked and evaluated (correct, consistent
and complete) prior to transfer into existing
functional check-out, operations and maintenance systems.
ConocoPhillips Alaska anticipates a 20 percent
savings in engineering costs from the managed
environment initiative; $5000 per $1 million savings in capital spending from the material masters
component; and 20 to 30 percent in total engineering costs from the data-reuse initiative. ;
