Global CIO names Gazpromneft-Yamal’s Novoportovskoye field information modelling technology the “Best Domestic Development” at this year’s “Project of the Year” awards

A project involving the “Application of Russian information modelling technologies (BIM) in design, construction and operation at the Novoportovskoye field” has won its nomination for “Best Domestic Development” at this year’s Global CIO “Project of the Year” awards.

The information model covering infrastructure at the Novoportovskoye field was developed by Gazpromneft-Yamal (operator of the Novoportovskoye field) together with engineering, IT and information specialists NEOLANT, and is a single electronic repository for engineering and financial data on every production facility at that asset, with the prototype reflecting all terrain, engineering networks, pipelines, architecture, construction, and other equipment and structures.

Cameras mounted on quadcopters (unmanned helicopters with four rotors) allowing 360-degree panoramic screening ensure the continuous updating of photographic and video data on facilities under construction, with the quality and efficiency of construction ensured through the use of 6D models including not just engineering and architectural data, but also information on deadlines and finances. Finished facilities’ compliance with project documentation can be assessed through virtual tours.

The use of digital modelling in construction allows greater efficiency in management decision-making, prevents critical or emergency situations, and reduces lead times and costs of construction. Using information modelling technologies can reduce total project lead-times, from initial construction works to commissioning, by 30 to 40 percent.

Alexey Ovechkin, CEO, Gazpromneft-Yamal, commented: “Using digital technologies is a priority areas of focus in Gazprom Neft’s technological development. The technical solutions being applied at the Novoportovskoye field today are allowing us to improve the efficiency and safety of our production activities, and will be successfully applied in implementing the company’s other major projects, in the future.”

*Giprotyumenneftegaz PJSC, HMS Group, is the General Designer of the facilities within the Novoportovskoye field.

Additional information

Novoportovskoye field is one of the largest designing oil-gas condensate oilfileds in the Yamal, located in 30 km from the Gulf of Ob coastal area. Recoverable resources of C1 and С2 are over 250 million tons of oil and condensate and over 320 milliard cubic meters of gas.

Project of the Year Competition annually arranged by the Global CIO, the official Portal of Russian IT-Directors, is sponsored by all professional IT-associations. Over 200 IT-projects participated in the Competition in 2017. The key is in the online poll judgement of the IT-Directors themselves based on the harmonized approach for project assessment by industry experts and established by IT-community.
