Initiated by the owner operator community, Capital Facilities
Information Handover Specification (CFIHOS - pronounced
“see-fos”) is an emerging standard for a consistent approach to
information handover meant to reduce the inefficiencies and costs in the information supply chain. As one of the initiative’s earliest adopters, Mike Curtin, VP Capital Project IM/IT, discusses how Shell’s project execution approach is evolving to align with the new standards, the impacts of CFIHOS on the industry and who is affected, and finally how technology is changing to support the shift. Mike also covers Shell’s journey from document to data centric information management for CFIHOS readiness, and finally, the next steps in their path towards digitalization across greenfield project execution and operations of existing assets.
