FEED – integrated Development of infrastructure Area for the rational Exploitation of Hydrocarbons
the main challenge of this project was to create a better way of
communicating between the engineering team and the owners by allowing all
parties to visualize multiple what-if scenarios for optimal plant functionality
at a minimal cost. By deploying Bentley’s AutoPLANT technology, the project
team overcame these challenges.
The software increased information accuracy and created areas and models
according to the work breakdown schedule to satisfy process, utilities, and
fire-fighting requirements. The software allowed graphic 3D representation
of the main equipment location and piping arrangements that were difficult to
appreciate in orthographic drawings. Overall, design man-hours were reduced
at a 2. 5 to 1 ratio compared to traditional 2D design.

The intangible benefits are as important as the quantitative benefits. The investment in
Bentley’s technology and 3D models includes optimization of deliverables generation, more accurate
schedules, increased productivity, improved sequence of construction, and enhanced quality.
