bp picks Bentley Systems for asset integrity management

Global energy firm bp chose Bentley’s AssetWise Asset Lifecycle Information Management (ALIM) and AssetWise Reliability (AR), part of Bentley Infrastructure Cloud, to manage engineering information for projects and operations to help assure asset integrity management globally, including the Asia-Pacific region.

Before this, bp also picked Bentley to provide its leading AssetWise ALIM solution as a Central Information Store (CIS) to manage change in a controlled manner to maintain validated information needed for global projects and operations, including all documents, tags, associated metadata, and 3D model visualisation.

Now, bp will standardise AssetWise ALIM across all projects, production, and manufacturing assets. 

AssetWise ALIM enables a seamless migration of all critical information throughout the lifecycle, supporting the capital project process through to ongoing operations more efficiently to support safe and reliable projects and operations.

AssetWise Reliability is expected to enable bp to optimise inspections, minimise maintenance costs, increase availability, and work to improve safety and risk management. 

bp initially implemented AssetWise Reliability on the Clair Asset in the North Sea, and a global deployment across eight regions is now underway.

Alan Kiraly, SVP of industry solutions at Bentley Systems, said the integration of AssetWise Reliability with the CIS in a cloud-based environment, to support bp’s Asset Integrity processes, enables Bentley to deliver standardised digital workflows and deliver significant benefits to bp.

“Expanding the use of Bentley’s AssetWise portfolio of solutions specifically extending ALIM across bp’s global projects, production and manufacturing assets, and integration of Asset Reliability…gives bp the assurance and advantage of accuracy of our information through effective change control, enabling us to make trusted decisions whether in projects or operations,” said Rob Kelly, VP of digital asset management at bp.
