Ugraneftegaz Project Enhances Engineering Design Integrity with Hexagon PPM

Russian engineering design institute chooses Intergraph Smart 3D® as the new in-house 3D design tool

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., December 21, 2017

Ugraneftegaz Project, a Russian engineering design institute specializing in the oil and gas industry, has selected Intergraph Smart® 3D software from Hexagon PPM to improve design integrity and interoperability between different engineering disciplines.

Among the key reasons cited by Ugraneftegaz Project for choosing Smart 3D are the software’s rule-based architecture combined with positive references from other design institutes in the region. Ugraneftegaz Project required a solution that would enable the company to automate design rules and allow rule-driven and data-centric engineering processes.

Ugraneftegaz Project will use Smart 3D in an upcoming upstream project with Gazprom Neft. The field includes 68 oil wells each with a production capacity of more than 500 tons per year. The company will be designing and engineering the diesel storage system for the new field with Hexagon PPM solutions.

Ugraneftegaz Project also expects the use of PPM solutions to enhance integration, especially between electrical and instrumentation disciplines. Commenting on the decision to use Hexagon PPM solutions, Ugraneftegaz Project’s general manager Husainov Rustem, said, “Intergraph Smart 3D is quickly becoming the preferred 3D design solution for engineering companies in our region. We expect to enhance the integrity and quality of our 3D design data with the help of the software’s excellent interoperability capabilities.”

Philippe Marceau, Hexagon PPM vice president EMIA, said, “We are seeing how the leading design institutes in Russia are trusting us to help them with their design projects. It is always a pleasure to see how our solutions help users to overcome their real-life engineering challenges.”

Smart 3D is a next generation, data-centric, and rule-driven solution – is specifically designed to deliver mission-critical requirements. Breaking through barriers imposed by traditional technologies to enable a truly iterative design environment, Smart 3D provides a competitive edge to EPCs and owner operators alike.
