Process Group Selects Intergraph® CADWorx® 2014 Plant Professional to Deliver Shah Deniz 2 Project

Intelligent 3D plant design and modelling solution with enhanced piping and structural features used on major gas field development

22 septembre 2014

Process Group, a company of Degremont, Suez Environment Group, has selected Intergraph® CADWorx® 2014 Plant Professional to help deliver BP’s Shah Deniz 2 project. Located in the Caspian Sea region, Shah Deniz 2 is one of the largest natural gas field developments in the world at this time.

When complete, the project will be responsible for delivering 6 billion cubic metres (212 billion cubic feet) per year of gas to Turkey, and an additional 10 billion cubic metres (350 billion cubic feet) per year to markets in Europe. The current concept for Shah Deniz 2 includes 500 kilometres (310 miles) of subsea pipelines, which will link 26 gas production wells with the onshore terminal. Process Group executed the design for the project in Australia and the fabrication in the United Arab Emirates.

Process Group selected AutoCAD®-based CADWorx 2014 Plant Professional for its ability to deliver one of the major goals of the project – the allocation of unique part details to all piping components to integrate with finance and procurement systems.

“CADWorx 2014 Plant Professional offers a highly capable piping and structural solution at a cost-effective price,” said Paul Tautor, Process Group’s Senior Piping Designer. “Because the solution is AutoCAD-based, it offers exceptional flexibility and collaboration. The efficiency gains driven by the new and improved features have been outstanding.”

New and improved features include improved routing capabilities; quicker, more intuitive modifications; and more powerful component catalogues and piping specifications. 

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine President, said: “We are proud Process Group has trusted us to fulfill its piping and structural requirements on Shah Deniz 2. The selection of CADWorx 2014 Plant Professional on this significant project demonstrates Intergraph’s expertise in and commitment to the global LNG sector.”
