Petroleum Development Oman implements Intergraph solutions to enhance engineering information management


Exploration and production company Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has implemented Intergraph Smart Data Validator and Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators to enhance engineering information management.

The Intergraph process, power and marine (PP&M) solutions were selected mainly due to their data-centric attributes and potentiality to assist PDO’s business workflows.

From its inception in 1962, PDO has focused on oil producing at the Oman Sultanate.

The company currently accounts for about 70% of the Sultanate’s total oil production and approximately all its natural gas supply.

"By choosing Intergraph PP&M solutions we expect to gain ease of use, flexibility of administration and improved efficiency."

By replacing its existing, legacy in-house software with Intergraph solutions, PDO intends to enhance the integrity of engineering information, integration between the different engineering software, and increase the overall engineering data quality.

By using Intergraph Smart Data Validator and Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators, PDO employees can analyse data quality and access the same, actionable and up-to-date engineering information.

PDO’s E&O information manager Philippa De Glanville said: “By choosing Intergraph PP&M solutions we expect to gain ease of use, flexibility of administration and improved efficiency. We foresee that the data-centric nature of the solution will enhance our overall engineering information integrity and quality.”

Intergraph PP&M president Gerhard Sallinger said: “We are witnessing how Intergraph PP&M solutions are becoming the industry standard for the Middle East region, having a key player such as PDO to choose our solution will further help us to strengthen our presence in the region.”

Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise utility provides advanced data management solutions that enable companies of process, power and marine industries with integrated engineering knowledge at the enterprise level and gain a competitive advantage.

The company claimed that SmartPlant Enterprise’s integrated suite of solutions have proved productivity gains, improving engineering efficiency by up to 30%.
