Bentley's Year in Infrastructure 2018 Awards recognizes advances in design, construction and operations of infrastructure using its software.
OGC distributes gas to 4.4 million people and many economic industry facilities. In order to maintain consistency, it developed a reliability and integrity program that digitized, automated, and compiled all reliability and integrity data and management tasks into one platform with Bentley’s AssetWise.
Chakraborty also noted that the technology is really about making the right information available to the right stakeholders at the right time; without that, decision-making power is at risk.
The other two finalists in OGC's category are India's Vedanta Limited - Cairn Oil and Gas for its Well Integrity and Flow Assurance Management project, and Russia's Volgogradnefteproekt LLC for its Object Modeling and Life Cycle Management: Project Implementation and Commissioning.
