Unasys Technology are developing a 2-tier platform to provide an interactive 3D representation of the North Sea Basin linked to all its underlying asset data.

The Digital North Sea will provide asset visualisation of all facilities including subsea infrastructure and seabed bathymetry.

The Digital Copy of each facility is a representation of physical and functional characteristics. The Digital Copy is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its lifecycle; defined as existing from conception to decommissioning.

You can search for and walk through your facility whilst unlocking the underlying data, that can be aggregated to show what is out there, and what its function is.

For many existing facilities, visual data in the form of 3D models and drawings is currently not available. We propose the adoption of reality capture methods to obtain a visual representation.

The use of reality capture together with the data will allow us to assess the status, condition, criticality and risk, and ultimately the inventory disposition for our decommissioning program.

The integration of various visualisation methodologies with their underlying data and documents will support the evaluation of the best decommissioning options, which can then reduce the operator’s decommissioning costs, and maximise facility use during late life.

The digital copy of each facility will be supported and underpinned by an application to digitally manage the late life of your facility through decommissioning and removal. Scopes of work will be packaged together with standard procedures and certification to validate the same.

Each facility’s digital copy will host all the attributes around systems, weight, structure and materials in addition to a document control module.

Each digital copy will be rolled up into a centralised portal; The Digital North Sea, that will provide visualisation and allow projections and historical data to be held and time lined.

The Digital North Sea will both define and host inventories, and show age, status, condition, criticality and risk.

The portal can be used to both develop comparative assessments and allow the supply chain to access accurate information ahead of tendering. Inventory dispositions can also be developed promoting the opportunity for re-use.

The Digital North Sea is a centralised portal that will provide the visualisation for all assets and facilities and allow projections and historical data to be held and timelined.

It will both define and host inventories, and show age, status, condition, criticality and risk.

The portal can be used to both develop comparative assessments and allow the supply chain to access accurate information ahead of tendering. These inventory dispositions can be developed promoting the opportunity for re-use.

GIS will be used as the main interface of the portal, providing an overarching view of each client’s facilities. Individual facility data (3D parametric models, documents, etc.) is linked to and accessible from the GIS interface and will be used to provide an overview of various metrics about the facilities. This will provide the client with an accurate and up to date view of their facilities, and support the client’s decision making processes, particularly for decommissioning.

Scopes of work can also be packaged together with standard procedures and certification to validate the same.

Each facility’s digital copy will host all the attributes for weight, structure and materials in addition to a document control module.
