When working on oil and gas offshore projects the 3D layout is one of the most essential parts according to Jacques Daubian, author and engineering and construction specialist. The objective of the company during the engineering and construction phases is to deliver the project on time and safely to the field operators and to ensure everything will be maintained safely, during the life of the offshore operations. All major oil and gas companies and contractors use 3D software for the design, layout, drawings and procurement of their projects. Each 3D model must be perfect during the detail engineering to be able to extract all the information necessary for the construction. The layout of offshore oil and gas projects start day one of the basic engineering and everything must be fixed before the completion of 50% of your detail engineering to avoid any engineering problems and delay during construction.The layout using 3D software is today an obligation. Jacques Daubian latest book The New 3D Layout for Oil & Gas Offshore Projects will aid projects struggling with their 3D model layouts as well as those simply looking for a new and more effective approach. The book includes a checklist, listed by discipline, of what must be done to ensure the success of your project. Jacques Daubian draws on personal experience within the engineering and construction industry to provide an informative and helpful guide. For 12 years Jacques Daubian examined the huge degradation of the layout aspect of offshore projects and has since re-evaluated this, as demonstrated in The New 3D Layout for Oil & Gas Offshore Projects.
