Petrobras Standardizes on Intergraph 3D Technology

Thursday, October 16, 2008

The world’s eighth largest oil company and a longtime Intergraph customer, Petrobras will completely adopt SmartPlant® 3D modeling and visualization, engineering and schematics, information and materials management, and project controls solutions to enable Petrobras to develop, operate and maintain its fixed offshore drilling platforms, semi-submersibles and FPSOs.

Petrobras has already used Intergraph solutions for 10 FPSOs, four semisubmersible floating production platforms, one gas platform and one re-pumping platform. Sisgraph, Intergraph’s Brazil-based distribution partner, will continue to support Intergraph offshore engineering solutions for Petrobras.

Petrobras is expanding its capacity to produce offshore structures and vessels so that it may tap the potential of a new discovery in the Gulf of Mexico and the ultra-deep Tupi and Santos Basin megafields off the coast of Brazil, which are among the largest in the world. The new ultra-deep megafields will push existing offshore technology to its limits and require platforms with exceptionally dense and complex structural and outfitting designs for which Intergraph’s next-generation offshore engineering solutions are uniquely suited.
