bp to use Bentley’s management solutions

Bentley Systems, Incorporated, an infrastructure engineering software company, announced that bp has selected Bentley’s AssetWise Asset Lifecycle Information Management (ALIM) and AssetWise Reliability (AR), part of the Bentley Infrastructure Cloud, to manage engineering information for projects and operations to help ensure global asset integrity management.

In 2019, bp selected Bentley to provide its flagship AssetWise ALIM solution as a central information store (CIS) to manage change in a controlled manner to maintain validated information required for global projects and operations, including all documents, tags, associated metadata and 3D visualization of the model.

bp will now standardize AssetWise ALIM across all projects, production and production assets. AssetWise ALIM enables the seamless migration of all critical information throughout the lifecycle, more effectively supporting the process from capital projects to ongoing operations to support safe and reliable projects and operations.

AssetWise Reliability will enable bp to optimize inspections, reduce maintenance costs, increase availability and improve safety and risk management. bp initially implemented AssetWise Reliability on the Clair Asset in the North Sea, with a global rollout now underway across eight regions.

Alan Kiraly, senior vice president of industrial solutions at Bentley Systems, said: “Bentley has a long-standing partnership with bp, providing AssetWise ALIM as bp’s central information store (CIS) to manage and maintain the information needed for projects and operations across the world. The integration of AssetWise Reliability with CIS in a cloud-based environment to support bp’s Asset Integrity processes enables Bentley to deliver standardized digital workflows and deliver significant benefits to bp.”

Rob Kelly, Vice President Digital Asset Management, bp, said: “I am delighted to be expanding the use of Bentley’s portfolio of AssetWise solutions, which specifically extends ALIM to bp’s global projects, manufacturing and production assets and asset reliability integration. This gives bp the assurance and advantage of the accuracy of our information through effective change control, enabling us to make trusted decisions, both in projects and operations.”
