Firm claims combining digital tools and improved work processes can achieve 30% cost reduction
SNC-Lavalin has returned to ADIPEC to demonstrate that oil and gas (O&G) operators can reduce costs by 30% across the design-build-operate lifecycle of oil and gas projects using technology.
The company says that it is showcasing its end-to-end solutions across the value chain from consulting and engineering to project delivery, completions and commissioning, asset integrity, and maintenance and operations.
The engineering, design and project management firm is hosting live demonstrations, where experts explain how technology is transforming the O&G sector. Additionally, the firm is demonstrating how it has reduced cost and schedule and improved productivity and safety for its customers. Experts will discuss structural integrity, safety management and other upstream onshore, offshore and downstream refining and petrochemical advancements, the firm said in a statement.
“With the potential to reduce CAPEX and OPEX by up to 30%; SNC-Lavalin Oil & Gas is improving the way we work for our customers, by streamlining work processes and leveraging our data to drive insight. Digital is a key enabler of our success, but it is our experts and changing culture that are driving the change. As one of the largest contractors in the Middle East region, we look forward to sharing the engineering, project delivery and operational advancements we have implemented for our customers,” said Maggie Seeliger, SVP, strategy and marketing, Oil and Gas at SNC-Lavalin.
SNC-Lavalin is participating in the ADIPEC Technical Programme as well. On Tuesday, November 13, Simon Evans, director, Digital Engineering will discuss Digital Transformation in Downstream Operations, and on Thursday, 15 November, Dr Sachi Maiti, director, Global Technology Taskforce will present Investment Planning for an Integrated Refining and Petrochemical Complex to Optimise Risk and Profit.
Two of the examples on show include virtual and augmented reality for design and operational reviews, which allows customers to see and analyse their facility prior to construction. The firm says this improves efficiency, simplifies decision-making and reduces costs.
SNC-Lavalin notes that the technology can also be used to boost global collaboration by bringing together project and client teams into a 3D virtual environment using avatars, enabling on-screen, instantaneous design planning and amendments.
