Hp gas reinjection on Bd platform
Al Shaheen Field, Qatar
maersk oil Qatar has invested billions of dollars to boost production at the
Al Shaheen Field, which is Qatar’s largest oil field. The BrIco1 to BrIco5
projects installed a new single-stage centrifugal motor-driven reinjection gas
compressor on the BD platform. The project included process, piping, structural,
instrumentation, and electrical modifications.
The team used microStation, plantSpace, and Structural modeler, which
helped in extracting deliverables within the time required to meet the project
schedule. The 3D modeling tools enabled extensive information integration
between piping and structural engineers, and the engineering team completed
the project in 30,000 man-hours over 24 months. The 3D models will be used in
future projects involving modifications to the facilities.

pro Ship’s goal for this $250,000 project in Italy was to design and build a green
engine room for a 72-metric-ton yacht. The design improved the efficiency of
the machine systems and reduced the consumption of fossil fuels. The main
challenge was to model a powerful engine system within a fixed span while
achieving the environmental design intent.
products deployed included microStation, plantSpace, plantSpace piping, and
plantSpace raceways. The solutions provided the advantages of time savings,
error reduction in project documentation, clash detection in piping systems, and
on-time delivery. Having a central database used by all the design disciplines
not only saved time, but also avoided design errors.
