Engineering portals add significant value to E&P project delivery capabilities ///

An E&P project is a complex engineering effort involving hundreds of engineers from different organizations, working together to design, construct and commission an asset before handing it over to the owner/operator. Efficient project management requires that engineering information is available to all key stakeholders in a way that enables them to work as one integrated organization. There are numerous challenges in sharing and viewing engineering information from various sources, spread globally. An engineering information portal provides a single window to view the information in a secure manner. It enables easy collaboration between stakeholders and supports productivity gains. Building a new E&P facility can cost $1-5 billion, taking three to five years to complete. As facility complexity increases, the tradition of nominating a single lead EPCM (Engineering Procurement and Construction Management) contractor is being replaced by a consortium of EPC contractors.
