Process Group selects Intergraph CADWorx 2014 Plant Professional to deliver Shah Deniz 2 project

Intergraph CADWorx 2014 Plant Professional, an intelligent 3D plant
design and modelling solution has been selected by Process Group, a company of
Degremont, Suez Environment Group to help deliver BP’s Shah Deniz 2 project.

Located in the Caspian Sea region, Shah Deniz 2 is one of the largest
natural gas field developments in the world. When complete, the project will be
responsible for delivering 6 billion cubic metres per year of gas to Turkey,
and an additional 10 billion cubic metres per year to markets in Europe. The
current concept for Shah Deniz 2 includes 500 kilometres of subsea pipelines,
which will link 26 gas production wells with the onshore terminal.

Process Group executed the design for the project in Australia and the
fabrication in the United Arab Emirates. Intergraph’s AutoCAD-based CADWorx
2014 Plant Professional was selected by Process Group for its ability to
deliver one of the major goals of the project – the allocation of unique part
details to all piping components to integrate with finance and procurement
