Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) will deploy McLaren Enterprise Engineer software to manage the engineering documents, drawings and associated business processes on its $8 billion Horizon Oil Sands Project.
With more than thirty-five Engineering Contractors engaged on the project, McLaren's software will control the delivery and ongoing management of Horizon's extensive engineering content, including CAD drawings and associated reference materials, and other project documents. Up to 1,000 end-users will have access to information, including CNRL employees and multiple contractors across several sites.
The project team will manage and maintain millions of engineering and project documents using Enterprise Engineer, deployed on the Documentum 5 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platform. The implementation will use the full suite of Enterprise Engineer applications, including Drawing Manager, Transmittals Manager, Business Action Manager, DocLoader, Solo, VueServer and RenderCenter.
The Horizon Oil Sands Project will provide one of the most significant energy resources in North America. At full production, it will supply around 232,000 barrels per day of crude oil for a period of more than 40 years, which equates to more than 8% of all the oil produced each day in Canada. It involves an $8 billion capital investment and at full capacity in 2012, will employ more than 2,400 people.
