Chevron has selected Avena to provide and implement a critical-information web portal to support its Agbami oil operation in Nigeria.
When completed, the Agbami floating production, located 70 miles offshore, will be the biggest of its kind in the world, producing 250,000 barrels of oil per day.
The Avena Net Portal is a web-enabled system for the integration and collaborative use of all engineering information.
Three-dimensional models, schematics, documents and data from any application can be accessed and navigated in context, with full intelligence, without needing the source application that originally created the data.
When operational, the system will be managed from the Chevron offices in Lekki, Nigeria. The design and engineering work will be co-ordinated over a number of sites internally in Nigeria, with specialist contractors internationally and with the Agbami system itself.
Using the Avena Net Portal platform, information will be continuously updated on the master hub and then synchronised with the replicated data onboard the system.
The data includes the three-dimensional ship-facility model, documents and other information, ensuring that reliable and accurate data is available online at any time during operation.
