Petroleum Development Oman Enhances Engineering Information Management with Intergraph SmartPlant Solutions

Next-generation engineering data management technology improves productivity and information integrity

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., November 17, 2016

Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), one of the leading oil and gas companies in the Middle East has implemented Intergraph Smart™ Data Validator and Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise for Owner Operators to improve engineering information management.

The Intergraph Process, Power & Marine solutions were chosen primarily due to their data-centric nature and ability to support Petroleum Development Oman’s business workflows.

Since its first economic oil find in 1962, PDO has specialized in oil producing at the Oman Sultanate and currently accounts for about 70 percent of local oil production and nearly all of Oman’s natural gas supply. By replacing its existing, legacy in-house software with Intergraph solutions, PDO aims to enhance the integrity of engineering information, integration between the different engineering software, and increase the overall engineering data quality.

With Intergraph Smart Data Validator and Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators, PDO employees will be able to check data quality, as well as access the same, actionable and up-to-date engineering information. Commenting on the decision to choose Intergraph Process, Power & Marine to improve information management workflows, Philippa De Glanville, PDO’s E&O Information Manager 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.”

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, commented, “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.”
