Collaboratively analyze and simulate multiple oil and gas facility concepts including scope, cost estimation, and project planning for conceptual engineering.

Create the best starting point for successful facility development

The conventional siloed, sequential approach to early facility concept scoping doesn’t work: It cannot comprehensively or quickly address all the options. And that can lead to costly changes and delays during FEED and construction, which is why 75% of facility development projects come in late and over budget.

That’s why we are introducing the first collaborative facility planning environment to accelerate identifying the optimal concept that balances scope, cost, project planning, and emissions. By concurrently assessing all the possible scenarios in Facility Planner on DELFI, you can quickly scope fit-for-purpose facilities to enable on-time and on-budget facility development.

Scenarios and facility concepts

Scenarios and facility concepts

Facility Planner on DELFI is your collaborative facility scoping, costing, and planning solution for conceptual engineering. By defining scenarios and facility concepts early in your project’s life cycle, you can quickly mature and derisk the facility scope, including selecting equipment for both process and supporting systems from the ground up and estimating emissions.

Scenarios and facility concepts
Technology and equipment selection

Technology and equipment selection

The powerful facility modeling features within Facility Planner on DELFI enable fast iteration to quickly analyze a wide range of facility concepts. Equipment and process technologies are selected to meet the requirements of the reservoir feed and export specifications. Automated equipment sizing and cost estimation together with project constraints are used to populate the final equipment list for procurement.

Scope of work

Scope of work

You’ll create a work breakdown structure for your facility concept to represent the work required to deliver the agreed scope of the project within the agreed time and budget. The work breakdown structure is linked to estimation logic for determining the cost and duration of the activities.

Work sequencing

Work sequencing

A Gantt chart coupled to the work breakdown structure in Facility Planner on DELFI is used to manually specify the sequencing of activities.

Contribution to field development plan

Contribution to field development plan

Facility Planner on DELFI seamlessly connects with FDPlan on DELFI, an agile field development planning solution. This enables assessing the overall economic value added by each facility concept in the context of the overall field development scenario.

With validated estimates for many comparable scenarios, your final facility scope is quickly detailed and derisked.

Evaluate all your options for performance and sustainability

Production is a dynamic process, which makes change a certainty. Facility Planner on DELFI gives you the capability to thoroughly assess the effects of change and plan for the future.

However, the reservoir and the market are not your only drivers to consider. The growing emphasis on sustainability can also pose challenges. Optimize reducing your carbon footprint by investigating your options in Facility Planner on DELFI.

Explore employing CYNARA acid gas removal membrane systems to replace or reduce the use of amine solvents. The effects ripple beyond reducing process emissions to maximizing acid gas separation and lightening the required weight of support structures. Similarly, Apura gas separation membranes enhance natural gas separation while enabling increased throughput and providing a high-purity CO2 permeate gas stream to support pursuing carbon capture and sequestration (CCS).

To lower your facility’s electricity consumption—and concurrently reduce related emissions—look at NATCO DUAL FREQUENCY electrostatic treaters, coalescers, and desalters. Their superior hydraulic efficiency boosts dehydration while enabling size reduction for the pressure vessel.

Try out all your options in Facility Planner on DELFI to better position your asset’s performance now and into the future.
