Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides a consolidated flange register for PETRONAS, faster and more cost-effective, helping them to achieve operational readiness for their RAPID refinery and petrochemical plants.

In May 2019, DIGATEX and MECIP* were engaged by the PETRONAS  to identify and map flange connections from different 3D CAD models with the as-built isometrics, to provide a complete flange register to support plant operational readiness.

The project was successfully completed in December 2019, many times quicker and far more cost-effectively than could be achieved with conventional methods.

The size of the task was huge with over 500,000 isometric drawing sheets, more than 10 different packages and multiple EPC contractors’ data.  DIGATEX used their Artificial Intelligence Platform, DI-analytics to read the isometrics, identify the line topologies and flanges, pair the 3D CAD and as-built isometrics, map the flange joints unifying the numbering, extract the bolting and gasket data, thus producing a consolidated flange register for the new RAPID plants.

The results (many terabytes of data) were presented in the DIGATEX Knowledge Hub where PETRONAS could review the results and provide quality checking and teaching enhancements to the AI engine.

It was commented that “PETRONAS and DIGATEX/MECIP team worked as an integrated team as the AI approach evolved to solve many detailed issues and take on board new ideas, depending on variations in the source data”.

Richard Beck of DIGATEX added “This project was innovative in technology and contracting approach and we (and the AI engine) had to adapt and learn fast.  The technology proved itself as did the PETRONAS and DIGATEX/MECIP teams”.
