FIELD ACTIVITY PLANNER
Field Activity Planner offers a cloud based digital platform for enabling rapid visual workflows for your offshore engineering work. The platform allows you to easily integrate with other backend systems and offshore engineering software already in use in your organization either for field design, field planning, or activity scheduling.
What Is It?
Your assets are your most valuable knowledge source.
Assets contain knowledge of years of engineering commitment. As workflows move to the cloud these valuable assets must move too. FieldAP is the only digital offshore engineering software solution offering a 100% cloud-based approach to asset management.
In FieldAP your assets become smart.
Smart assets store engineering, costing and configuration data. Select an asset and that data becomes part of the project. This knowledge will be available to those who need it – instantly!
See more data. Make more smart choices.
Visualize Your Field
People are visual creatures.
We need to see more about assets and information in a visually relevant context. FieldAP brings your valuable assets to life as 3D visual twin representations within the entire field layout.
Realize your ideas significantly faster, generating real data, leading to smarter decisions.
Move assets in 3D and all connected assets will move in tandem. MetaData, costs and timelines will recalculate instantly. Information is always up to date, relevant and accessible.
See more insights, and make more happen.

Real-Time Global Collaboration reduces accelerates timelines across your entire project life.
All stakeholders can now see more than ever before — the same information, at the same time. Subject matter experts can participate to bring their special knowledge into the flow early and often, to make more impact on a project’s outcome.
See more stakeholders. Make more decisions that save time, reduce errors and control risk.
Field Activity Planner enables a digital working environment for your organization and offers instant global collaboration. Allowing you to REDUCE COST in the 3D field layout design process for the whole value chain by quickly finding the best solution in the design phase and by shortening the total project lead time is just one of the benefits. See the diagram below for a benefit summary:
Field Layout Module
The Field Layout module allows you with quick and easy “drag and drop” operations to rapidly create new or replicate existing field layouts. Connecting assets are as simple as drawing lines/splines between asset/structure connection points and designating the connection type.
The layouts can be as simple or as advanced as your imagination allows. The sub-project “Clone” feature allows you to quickly create multiple field design options for layout comparisons or “What-if” analytics. Assets can be accurately placed using lat, long coordinates for the field, and you can also set the asset rotation in degrees. If Bathymetry data is loaded for the project, all connection lenghts will be calculated and disaplayed in real time.
Assets will typically be design elements that depict subsea installation structures or other operational equipment such as “Manifolds”, “Templates”, “FPSOs” etc. At the moment “Field Activity Planner” comes with a generic library of the most commonly used structures and vessels.
All Assets are smart. They contain metadata that includes engineering specifications, costing details or links to your backend Enterprise systems. As you add assets to you field layout, the project specifications will update immediately to reflect the metadata values stored in the asset. A Private Asset library feature allows you to digitize and add your own subsea or topside engineering assets in the solution for detailed field layouts.
Drag and Drop
The Field Layout module allows you with quick and easy “drag and drop” assets to create new fields layouts or replicate existing field layouts in a very short time.
Connecting assets are as simple as drawing lines that represent connectors, umbilicals and pipes between connection points.
Once assets are connected they are automatically associated with each other so changes are reflected in both the assets and it’s connected resources.
Entire sections of your layout can be selected, moved in bulk or copied to other parts of the field.
Users can instantly switch between 2D and 3D views and move assets around in either mode.
Open the Projects dashboard and you will immediately see all projects belonging to your company account that you have permission to access.
The Projects are displayed as a list, but with Project Cards for the four (4) most recent projects that have been worked on at the top. Project folders can also be created for better management where you have a large number of individual projects. Project Administrators can set project values, settings and assign specific assets and attributes at a project level. Users can be invited to a specific project, but access to certain sensitive data (such as costing, well data etc.) can be disabled based on user permissions.
User Administration & Security
Designated users are system administrators that allows them to invite new users and set their access privileges and project rights in an easy to use interface. New users will receive an invitation via email and token based authentication via cellphone or email. Access Users gets access to the company account only and have the rights to open every project therein. To be able to edit a project created by another user you have to copy the project first. Enterprise Authentication options available for Azure AD, On Premise AD, OAuth 2.0, or Google Identity. All data traffic and endpoints are encrypted with SSL.
Other Energy Verticals
Our cloud based Digital Energy solution Field Activity Planner helps you to improve planning, reduce cost and increase efficiency also for renewable energy. There is a dedicated generic Wind Power asset library available for this energy vertical that allows you to quickly design and plan your offshore wind farm layouts and activities. Please contact us for more details.
Discuss Field Designs options visually in real-time with team members in various geographic locations during conference calls. You can invite a team member into your project to collaborate with you and decide what project data should be shared with them.

Our REST API allows you to interface your existing back-end systems with Field Activity Planner to utilize your existing data in defining an efficient and cost saving digital workflow. It allows you to programmatically Add/Edit/Update/Delete attributes, and metadata for data driven design. You can populate cost values direct from MS Excel or your own costing software and even retrieve 3D Field and Object Geometry for Engineering reuse. Our technology partners integrate with the API so you can as an example run Flow assurance simulations directly from FieldAP for quick field layout validation.

We also support the most common data sources, and formats used for typical offshore software solutions e.g. bathymetry, reservoir, and well paths. Using our SaaS software, you can direct from your browser quickly design a field layout where you load up your bathymetry and/or survey data. Then simply add 3D reservoir and well data for a complete overview and start to finalize you subsea layout by placing generic or company specific subsea and topside assets in the correct locations. And while you design, modify, and collaborate on possible field layouts you will see that cost calculations are constantly updated when the design changes.
All this data is securely uploaded and processed in our cloud service and is viewable in both 2D and 3D, and you can invite coworkers into you project, and directly create a shareable URL for view only purposes that can be sent outside your organization to prospective clients and partners. Real-Time Global Collaboration means reduced risk of errors and accelerated timelines across your entire project life. All stakeholders can now see the same information, at the same time.
