Moscow, April 20 - Neftegaz.RU. A project involving the «Application of Russian information modelling technologies (BIM) in design, construction and operation at the Novoportovskoye field» has won its nomination for «Best Domestic Development» at this year’s Global CIO «Project of the Year» awards.
The information model covering infrastructure at the Novoportovskoye field was developed by Gazpromneft-Yamal together with engineering, IT and information specialists NEOLANT, and is a single electronic repository for engineering and financial data on every production facility at that asset, with the prototype reflecting all terrain, engineering networks, pipelines, architecture, construction, and other equipment and structures.
Cameras mounted on quadcopters allowing 360-degree panoramic screening ensure the continuous updating of photographic and video data on facilities under construction, with the quality and efficiency of construction ensured through the use of 6D models including not just engineering and architectural data, but also information on deadlines and finances. Finished facilities’ compliance with project documentation can be assessed through virtual tours.
The use of digital modelling in construction allows greater efficiency in management decision-making, prevents critical or emergency situations, and reduces lead times and costs of construction. Using information modelling technologies can reduce total project lead-times, from initial construction works to commissioning, by 30 to 40 %.
The «Project of the Year» competition is held by Global CIO, the official portal for IT Directors in Russia, and is supported by all of the country’s professional IT associations. More than 200 IT projects were entered in the competition in 2017.
