Gazprom Neft becomes the first company in Russia’s oil and gas industry to provide FAI Glavgosekspertiza with a 3D simulation of surface facilities


In a first-ever event for Russia’s oil and gas industry, Gazprom Neft has provided a proposal on oilfield surface facilities for review by Glavgosexpertia Russia in digital format — a 3D information model of a cluster-pad (well-pad) at Gazpromneft-Nopyabrskneftegaz’s Ety-Purovskoye field being submitted in addition to design documentation and the outcomes of engineering surveys.

This 3D cluster-pad model reflects the local terrain, as well as the configuration of engineering networks, pipelines, architectural and structural elements and other field surface facilities. The digital copy also includes a range of non-graphic data, including attribute-based information on the facility being designed.

Representatives from this regulatory body (i.e., Glavgosekspertiza) checked data compatibility between the 3D-model and hard-copy project documentation, as well as compliance with the agency’s standards and regulations. The outcomes of work on the pilot 3D model of the Ety-Purovsky cluster-pad will be taken into account in the department developing its requirements in terms of informational models subsequently accepted for examination. On which basis, Gazprom Neft’s pilot project marks the first step in digital technologies being used in government oversight of capital construction projects in the oil and gas industry.
