CADconform and the Energy/Mining Industries
The energy and mining industries provide the raw materials needed for the developing world to run. Whether it's fuel such as oil, gas and coal, or raw materials such as iron ore and base metals, these materials must be extracted from deep in the Earth, then pre-processed, shipped, refined and distributed to the world.
Increasingly, these operations are occurring in geographically remote and challenging locations, requiring feats of science, engineering and logistics for the development, operation and maintenance of complex facilities and infrastructure.
The design and construction of these facilities (such as offshore platforms, LNG terminals, processing and refining plants) are often complex, global, multi-vendor projects. The operation and maintenance of facilities in these inherently dangerous industries require constant attention, with particular care for matters related to health, safety and environmental (HS&E) issues.
Standardized data and information in CAD drawings can provide your business with strategic business value during the full lifecycle of these complex facilities.
Using CADconform to promote and enforce 100% conformance to CAD standards lets owner/operators of energy and mining companies use standards-conformed CAD data to:
- Provide seamless transfer of CAD data and improved interoperability among multiple consultants and contractors to keep projects on schedule and get facilities online and operational, on time and within budget.
- Contribute to the overall data integrity of data and information stored in CAD drawings for strategic business re-use for the operation and maintenance of these facilities, re-use which includes systems for: safety and security, regulatory compliance, asset management, document management, and more.
