pump jack 848300 640Hexagon’s PPM division has announced that Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), one of the largest oil and gas exploration and production company in Oman, has completed phase three of its information management digital transformation journey with Hexagon

This phase of the project included the implementation of Hexagon’s Digital Twin Technology and SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO) platform to enable PDO’s maintenance and operations teams, direct access to the digital twin throughout the entire business lifecycle.

Using Hexagon solutions, PDO can digitally transform its information management and project collaboration by providing a single source of truth platform where all lifecycle information is centrally available to more than 4,100 employees and contractors.

Due to the unique capabilities of the SmartPlant Enterprise platform, PDO has chosen Hexagon as its preferred solution provider: the platform is based on zero-footprint technology with full mobility features.

This enables the project and operations teams, as well as contractors and vendors inside and outside the company network, to collaborate on projects in real-time. This on-prem cloud-based concept provides secure access while improving efficiency and productivity as errors, clashes and the need for rework is deducted.

Mohamed Mujaini, engineering and operation information management functional manager at PDO, said, “SPO is one of the strategic solutions for PDO to drive the digital transformation of projects and operations. Having Hexagon’s SPO platform has enabled us to transform our project collaboration and improve efficiency digitally. For example, the time needed to allocate tags has been reduced by 90%, from days to a few minutes. Also, the time needed for handovers between contractors and project teams has decreased by 50%.”

Jean-Francois Stephan, executive vice-president, Hexagon’s PPM division, said, “Seeing how Hexagon solutions have enabled PDO to move forward with digital transformation is an inspiration. We are honoured to collaborate with world-leading companies such as PDO in digitalisation initiatives that facilitate safer and more cost-effective operations.”

Hexagon’s PPM division software solutions transform unorganised data into intelligent, actionable information that enables the smarter design, construction, operation and management of industrial projects including oil and gas, power generation, AEC building infrastructure, metals and mining, shipbuilding, pharmaceutical, chemical and consumer goods. Throughout the lifecycle, Hexagon helps connect field to office, EPCs with owner-operators and initial design through handover.
