The Khazzan Project is one of BP’s seven major projects in 2017, which started its production in September 2017. The company was selected as a winner from more than 400 nominations of projects around the world.

BP Oman has created a central information store (CIS) to manage and maintain information needed for operations, including all documents, tags, associated metadata and 3D model visualisation. It identified the Bentley solution that is supporting the capital project process, to the operations CIS in a way, aiming to support safe and reliable operations.

According to BP, the company is leveraging its experience using Bentley’s AssetWise for engineering content management. The solution is deployed in projects around the world. The CIS supports the BP operations in Oman and its support offices, as well as certain third parties with whom they contract work.

The CIS aims to maintain the integrity of BP asset information to provide an accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive digital baseline for configuration. It further focuses on shortening approval times when changes are required and ensuring that the latest information is available.

Dave Campbell, chief operating officer and vice-president for operations in BP Oman, said, “We have approximately 60,000 documents and 160,000 tags, so the deployment of AssetWise gives me the assurance we have the right tool in place to manage this scale of information, and provide easy access, 24/7, for my operations team.”

Anne-Marie Walters, process industry marketing director in Bentley, said, “BP’s Khazzan project stands out for its degree of complexity, scope and innovation in replacing handover with seamless migration of asset lifecycle information, from the design phase through construction and into operations.”

“Using a Microsoft Azure-based cloud deployment of Bentley’s AssetWise, the project team delivered information integrity to support a safe, reliable, and efficient operation throughout the life of their assets,” Walters added.
