Petrex deliver N. Sea cost-savings with 3-dimensional underwater platform maps

Petrex Developments three-dimensional underwater atlasVital time can often be lost during offshore work when crews – especially divers – are unfamiliar with specific operator assets.

So to mitigate lost time and extra costs, Petrex Developments Visualisation & Simulation Service were tasked with modelling several 3D animations and simulations of subsea assets/infrastructure to assist and improve onshore and offshore teams familiarity.

This Petrex scope is part of an on-going development in the Norway Continental Shelf.

Kevin Kit Ho, the driving force behind Petrex Developments Visualisation & Simulation Team said: “Giving project team members such as divers a clearer picture is a game changer and time saver, everything can be checked and double checked in fully scaled animated environment before a project moves to its offshore phase.

“Time spent onshore using these animations in this demonstration, familiarisation and training stage equates to less costly vessel time, potentially delivering significant savings to the operator.

Ian Pithie, Business Manager, added: “At Petrex Developments we employ the latest market leading software and hardware to produce realistic visuals and animations to bring offshore projects to life. We fully understand and appreciate the need to drive efficiencies in the current oil and gas industry climate, and are pleased to assist a wider range of Clients with such a unique service where we have tried and tested specialist capabilities.”
