Executive Summary

BP America Inc. wanted to integrate planning and scheduling for routine maintenance, capital projects, and turnarounds (periodic shutdowns for maintenance, overhauls, or testing) at four North American refining sites, as well as several chemical and pipeline locations and manage complex scheduling and planning for a US$3.8 billion revamp to the company's Indiana refinery. The challenge was to support megaclusters - a growing number of large-scale turnaround projects to modernize refineries - while simultaneously increasing efficiency of routine maintenance. BP America Inc. upgraded to Oracle's Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management to standardize scheduling and planning across the company and increase collaboration.
