Modelling

When it comes to planning and modelling infrastructure facilities for upstream production, applying innovative technology solutions can significantly optimise modelling efficiencies and budgets. These include data-driven construction planning that gives more accurate insights for decision-making, a 3D data modelling tool that simulates multi-billion dollar projects and interactive hologram models that can easily visualise complex building projects.

AI-powered shipping planning

This planning AI solution improves production and shipping efficiency, leading to increased margins by optimising warehouse space and reducing delivery costs. The tool identifies key dependencies, priorities and constraints relevant to the decision-making process involved in a particular shipping project. The data is then used to train a machine learning model that can manage a large number of projects and variables.

3D building modelling platform

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D modelling-based process designed to help manage large projects smoothly and efficiently. BIM can allow all participants in the value chain to collaborate on management functions, real-time data exchange and access from all kinds of devices. BIM can also feed numerous databases, from construction materials to technical and environmental data, allowing it to go beyond 3D modelling to provide cost integration, timing and more.

Interactive hologram models

Based on Augmented Reality (AR) technology, this solution visualises building designs as movable 3D holograms. The holograms show planned construction designs, including underground objects, superimposed onto real-world environments. This ‘mixed reality’ view helps users to sense the physical dimensions of a project and make design iterations without building physical models. Adjustments can be made in real time, enabling faster collaboration and reducing the costs and time needed for client changes. The tool can also record voice notes for each object, giving context to what the user is looking at.

Data-driven construction planning

Harnessing Big Data, this solution is a system dynamics modelling tool for managing project changes in the construction planning process. The model simulates a diverse range of projects and potential changes. These include cause-effect relationships between key project parameters and survey data from managers with extensive industry experience. This enables more accurate deadline and cost forecasting as well as improving the way that changes are communicated.

Using Big Data to reduce capex deviation

This solution uses Big Data based on historical data to reduce capex deviation and make costs changes more predictable. It incorporates an early warning system that predicts unexpected change cost based on the rework intensity of technical designs. In addition, its planning granularity indicator pinpoints the optimal degree of detail that a project plan should contain. Based on an ongoing data project that merges three disconnected data pools, the system can analyse high volumes of historical data from over 2, 000 projects and 700, 000 line items to make accurate predictions and significantly reduce change costs.

Submarine laser scanning

These robotic underwater laser scanners help to mitigate the often substantial risks and costs associated with pipeline survey operations, by building an accurate understanding of where the pipeline can be laid. The scanner’s data can be used to create 3D models of subsea assets and environments, which can then become a source of instant, ongoing and accurate measurements. They can be deployed easily by remotely operated vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles or by divers.

Geospatial planning for congested areas

Offshore operators can improve safety in congested areas with this geospatial awareness platform. Ideal for busy ports and rigs, it creates visualisations that operators can use to plan vessel routes and optimise schedules. The solution assesses real-time data from multiple sources, such as vessel route plans, operational activity and exclusion zones to avoid conflicts between vessels and fixed assets. It then creates a temporal planning chart, similar to a Gantt chart, with time-stamped spatial data. Benefits for operators include optimised schedules, improved safety and environmental compliance, plus better decision-making that leads to reduced cost of ownership.
