Thank you for participating the launch of IMF. Recording, presentation and the IMF guideline are now available,

IMF document, recording, presentation and Q&A from the launch are available here.

A wide group of experts from across the industry and from the READI JIP members have contributed in the development of the asset Information Modelling Framework(IMF) – one of the main deliverables from the READI JIP.

In this event the IMF IM was presented by the main authors, professor Arild Waaler (UiO/SIRIUS) and Erlend Fjøsna (Envester). They will explain the concept, as well as provide examples of how implementation creates value.

Addressing needs in the entire oil and gas value chain

Today owners, operators, EPCI contractors and suppliers in the oil and gas industry spend massive amounts of expert man hours to specify, implement and verify requirements versus design, yet repeatedly resulting in quality deviations in project execution and operation.

The Joint Industry Project (JIP) READI (REquirement Asset Digital lifecycle Information) addresses this by establishing a platform for automated digital verification of requirements and design in the oil and gas industry, including governance and validation.

When in place, the platform will enable computers to read and perform automatic reasoning on requirements to validate consistency and verify engineering and operational data with accuracy at minimal cost and time expenditure from concept definition to decommissioning.

Using advanced digital technology to reshape and automate current business processes

  • Strengthen the competitive edge of the oil and gas industry
  • Improve quality, reduce failures and enhance safety in projects and operations of assets
  • Accelerate digitalization and standardization in the global oil and gas industry
  • Gain efficiency through automation of work processes in engineering, procurement and operation
