Paris, France, and Providence, R.I., USA, July 10, 2007 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that JP Kenny, one of the world's largest independent pipeline and subsea engineering organizations, has adopted Abaqus Unified Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software, from Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA brand, to improve design and installation operations in several of its major Western Australian gas field projects.
“To make the undersea infrastructure more secure, we have used Abaqus FEA software to plan for major event scenarios, including the impact of cyclones on pipeline dynamics,” said Gordon Cowper, pipeline business leader for JP Kenny, Perth, Australia. “Abaqus has reduced simulation times and improved the efficiency and accuracy of pipeline design and route mapping.”
“Abaqus FEA software has a long history of successful use in the energy, petrochemical and offshore exploration industries,” stated Ken Short, vice president strategy and marketing, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes. “We continuously develop new and better technology for our customers, such as JP Kenny, to address the challenging engineering problems associated with increasingly harsh operating environments, making the extraction, transportation, and storage of theirenergy assets more cost-effective, safer and environmentally responsible.”
Energy companies face large investments in pipeline materials and installation. As they expand their exploration into new regions to find, produce and conserve energy resources, the use of Abaqus FEA technology from SIMULIA provides faster and more reliable engineering insight into design, installation and operational scenarios. This helps ensure that pipelines and other offshore systems continue to function correctly throughout their working life with maximum return on investment and minimum environmental impact.
