MetadataVis full innførsel
This Thesis has focused on Visualization and Simulation Technology in oil and gas industry. It contains the common usages and the implementation process of this new advance technology. 3D Visualization Technology has just been introduced since last decades in Exploration & Production of oilfield development. Aker Solutions has introduced the new innovation technology product solutions, which is 3D simulator software for training, planning and testing purposes in relation to operational projects within their business areas. Aker MH AS, Drilling technologies department, Stavanger, has opened the master thesis topic of product management, which the author had this opportunity to write academic report about this product services. The first intention of this thesis topic are to find out where Aker Solutions stands in the industrial for simulation services and how this product is positioned going forward. However, to adapt this thesis into industrial assets management discipline the objectives included the usage benefits and mapping future solutions of the product mainly for the topside operational of Oilfield development particularly at offshore platforms. The structure of Thesis consists of the technology status reviews, an analysis and evaluation of product usages, the benefits of the product and future solutions for oil and gas industry. The work process of the product is called Visioneering®, which is a combination of visualization technology and engineering process. The concept of this technology work process is to provide the simulation services for operation performance improvement by reducing risk in the operation, ensuring process reliability and lowering offshore operation costs and downtime. This thesis also illustrates the basic of oilfield operational process of drilling, maintenance, modification, subsea, and installation of Aker Solutions for better understanding of the product usage.
