Sharecat platform supports ConocoPhilips $2.6 Billion Jasmine Field

The Jasmine field is a gas condensate field located in the UK North Sea, developed via a fixed platform tied back to the existing nearby Judy platform.
The Sharecat platform was used to handle supplier information for the full duration of project execution phase including commissioning, close-out and handover to the ConocoPhilips operations group (data hand over to Hexagon SmartPlant Operations). The total project cost was ~$2.6 Billion USD, and the execution phase lasted from 2010 to 2013. “Without the Sharecat platform and its numerous automated processes, the Jasmine Project would have been far less efficient in processing and managing the volume of information and was a key contributor to the success of information management on the project”. – Worley project team.

Further Detail

The aim for information management on the Jasmine project was to “Deliver the highest quality, complete, digital asset information to meet the requirements of ConocoPhillips”.

Prior to the start of the Jasmine project, Worley identified that the management of the project’s supplier information was to form a major part of the information management scope due to the large volumes of supplier information to be gathered. In addition, ConocoPhilips adopted a digital approach to managing asset information from across the project information lifecycle from creation to operational handover.  As part of this approach a core element for successful asset management is the delivery of high quality and complete equipment information for use by the operations group.

To meet these objectives the Sharecat platform was applied as a collaborative, centralised solution specifically for supply chain information.  This enabled efficient storage and interaction with supplier documents and data, integrated as part of the project procedures and processes thanks to the integrated platform tools and functions. The adoption and use of the Sharecat platform directly supported and ensured the project’s ability to deliver the high quality and complete equipment information required.

A proactive approach to supplier information management by Worley, combined with the use of a world class digital platform provided by Sharecat achieved an unprecedented success in the collection and delivery of correct, compliant and complete supplier information for the Jasmine Project. Furthermore, the use of the Sharecat platform resulted in a significant saving for the project team through increased efficiency, estimated to be in the vicinity of £1.32 million.

Active collaboration and the development of a close working relationship between the Sharecat and Worley teams resulted in a remarkably high level of complete and correct supplier information being delivered to the project prior to completion of offshore commissioning of the Jasmine platform and well in advance of first oil. The degree of completeness of high-quality information demonstrated on the Jasmine Project is a significant achievement.
