Intergraph(R) Engineering and Design Collaboration Helps PETROFAC Succeed on Large Refinery Project in Saudi Arabia

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- Aug 26, 2013 -- Intergraph has published a new case study that describes how CAESAR II helped PETROFAC (Saudi Arabia) succeed on the $5 billion Rabigh II refining and petrochemical project for Saudi Aramco and Sumitono Chemical. The project included engineering and design for a large new aromatics complex and facility expansion to process ethane and naphtha, with 248 systems requiring stress analysis. Petrofac chose Intergraph® CAESAR II® for the project deliverables which included stress isometrics using the ISOGEN tool plus calculations, plots, datasheets, and reports. The collaboration that Intergraph software provides between engineering and design proved a major benefit. Even with this project's 198 interface points with other contractors, the flow and sharing of engineering information was smooth and efficient because so many of them use Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions. The easy interface between design and engineering helped PETROFAC reduce man-hours by 20 to 25%, and the accurate analyses CAESAR II provides helped eliminate project risks and overcome challenges of the desert-like conditions.
