HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph® SmartPlant® for Owner Operators technology is now used by Gazprom Neft, one of the largest oil companies in Russia, to integrate engineering data management systems during major construction projects and the operation of oil refining sites.
A pilot project for integrating SmartPlant for Owner Operators technology was scheduled and is currently being implemented. In 2015, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, together with Gazprom Neft specialists, implemented the first part of the pilot project called "Engineering data management system for oil refining sites (the first stage – Fast Track)."
This engineering information database, based on Intergraph SmartPlant for Owner Operators technology, will allow reduction of the data and document transfer management costs during the entire life cycle of oil refining assets. The benefits of the system include the ability to reduce time spent on searching for information, enhanced security and an ability to centralize engineering project data to provide access to all employees involved. Later, the database will support timely and informed decision making processes at the industrial sites.
Sergei Ovchinnikov, director of logistics, refinery and sales management systems department, commented on the decision to choose Intergraph SmartPlant products, "When considering the specifications and uniqueness of this project, we expect the new, integrated engineering data management system to become an indispensable tool for both production site specialists and experts, as well as the management of Gazprom Neft."
Gerhard Sallinger, president of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, said, "Russia is a key market for Intergraph PP&M. It is great to see that one of the leading Russian companies on the market of hydrocarbon extraction and refining, Gazprom Neft, has decided to integrate SmartPlant for Owner Operators technology. I expect this to bring short-term and long-term success for both Intergraph and Gazprom Neft."
