Back in 2014, we wrote about a joint venture liquefied natural gas (LNG) project we were just getting started on. See original post here.
Fast forward to 2017 and we’re happy to report that this particular project is almost ready for first gas.
We had some follow-up questions for the project team. Here they are, just in case you were curious about the value of implementing Coreworx Interface Management (CIM) on your LNG project:
What stages of the project was CIM used on?
CIM was used on all stages of the project, from Front End Engineering Design (FEED) to construction for managing all external contractor interface points.
How many contractors used the system and what kind of access did they have?
There were seven main interfacing contractors including the Central Gas Processing Facility (CGPF), Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO), Turret, and Pipeline contractors. This included 28 issued packages, 138 interface managers, 158 observers and 269 technical contacts.
How many interfaces are being managed in Coreworx?
So far, 521 interface points (IPs) and 3,330 interface agreements (IAs) are being managed by Coreworx Interface Management.
Would you recommend an interface management solution for other projects?
Yes! I would 100% recommend having a robust and specific interface management system that allows reporting and easy identification of information flows in a managed and controlled way between external interfaces.
Whether you’re just about to embark on pre-FEED, or you’re ready to launch into construction, it’s never too early to start implementing best practices, or too late to rescue a troubled project.
