What does the PDEF project do?


Description & Objective :

  • Agree on an industry-wide common format to describe all data that defines and is used in design and operations management of subsea pipelines, to facilitate efficient data exchange between different parties involved in any given project.

  • Produce documentation describing the data format and a web interface allowing to populate and access a set of data →  The creation of a common data format is expected to result in development of a range of new tools and services to improve the overall design process.

Scope :

  • How is the data format structured to allow integration of new features in the future, e.g. riser system, or other disciplines?

  • How to integrate the data needs of different sub-disciplines?

  • How can the format deal with different types of pipelines such as single pipe, PIP, piggybacks, bundles, etc.?

  • How is the pipeline discretised and what is the overall architecture of the data and the interrelation between data subsets ? The dataset will be multi-disciplinary, including aspects such as operating, linepipe, routing, metocean, geotechnical, fabrication and installation data.

  • Format organisation to allow different levels of detail on the data, depending on the phase of the project and life of the pipeline?

  • How is the source/reference of each data point recorded and tracked through the life of a project/pipeline

TRL (as per API scale) :

  • Currently: TRL 0 (The need has been identified with sponsors and has been initiated with the knowledges Dynamès has of the current data formrat for some actors of oil extraction offshore)

  • Expected at the end of the CITEPH project: TRL 5 (Solution will be tested and ready to be released in production for sponsors, evolutions could be started)

Opportunity Value for the Sponsor Companies :

  • Simplify and accelerate the process of data exchange processes.

  • Prevent unnecessary errors when copying data from reports

  • Allow the engineers to perform added value activities using the easily accessible data.

  • Provide a clear and efficient format in which all the data of a pipeline can be stored, in a form that can be easily accessed years after the project has been completed

  • Put in place the first block required to incorporate all the power of digitalisation into subsea pipeline engineering. This will make possible a certain automatization of the design process, allowing to update easily a design when some input data is modified. Eventually it will enable different forms of design optimisation and data analytics.

  • Improve designs and reduce project delays and costs
