Giprotyumenneftegaz Speeds Design of Complex Booster Pump Station, Reduces Costs Using Bentley Software

EXTON, Pa.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 25, 2009— Giprotyumenneftegaz, a leading design organization in Russia, won a 2008 Be Award of Excellence in the “Innovation in Oil and Gas” category. The winning project, Booster Pump Station with Preliminary Water Discharge Facility, consisted of a complex pump design that involved the interconnection of a process site, industrial zone, administrative buildings, and engineering facilities in Russia’s Yugansk oil region. The project is featured in the new publication “The Year in Infrastructure 2008,” available online from Bentley Systems, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for the infrastructure that sustains our world, at www.bentley.com/YearInInfrastructure2008. Successful project completion hinged on Giprotyumenneftegaz’s ability to coordinate the workflows of several design and engineering disciplines, including surveyors, architects, sanitary engineers, and electrical engineers. Through its use of Bentley’s interoperable software, the Giprotyumenneftegaz team was able to collaborate across all design phases, streamline its workflows, accelerate the project schedule, and reduce its costs by up to 30 percent.

Commenting on the project, Sergey Sokolov, general director of Giprotyumenneftegaz, said, “Bentley’s 3D modeling technology allowed us to design complex technological objects more efficiently and to automate labor-intensive processes. Since we began deploying Bentley software, we have won a significantly higher percentage of bid competitions. In fact, we have produced eight times more work in the past four years and have been six times more productive – all without increasing our workforce.”
