  2. 2. It provides a structured method of obtaining reliable fixed price bids where limited design definition is available. Our extensive in-house database of fabrication Quantities, Norms and Pricing information for Onshore and Offshore projects is coupled with pricing data from all major fabrication locations globally including Europe, Gulf of Mexico, Middle East and Asia Pacific. The system also provides a detailed method of measurement and pricing preambles for each unit rate and boq item. The tender process can then be carried out on modeled information at a very early stage in the design cycle, determining fixed pricing structures with fabricators and providing accurate estimates of out-turn fabrication cost. boqsor™ provides a powerful tender evaluation tool and the ability to run “what if” sensitivity scenarios to evaluate the impact of growth on the relative tenders. As the design develops Quantity information can be updated and replaced throughout the life of the design through to the “as-built” stage. Interfaces between boqsor™ and the design information in design information in PDMS or 3D model can provide a Semi- Automated Measurement process, reducing time and manpower in capturing Quantity Data. Historical data from previous similar projects on outturn quantities to create model Bills of Quantities and Schedule of Rates for tendering purposes A structured method of obtaining reliable fixed price bids where limited design definition is available A robust tender evaluation tool that can process and capture large amounts of pricing data from tenders and provide detailed comparison reports in a very short period of time. A reliable basis for awarding contracts and managing them commercially throughout their duration A mechanism for managing changes during construction A method for calculating progress payments The delivery of these services is system driven with particular emphasis on our two flagship software packages boqsor™ and b-est™. boqsor™ is a powerful bill of quantity and unit rate contracting tool and b-est™ provides accurate cost estimating for major capital projects in the industry. boqsor™ can be used to support the administration of unit rate re-measurable contracts throughout their lifecycle from initial estimates, bid preparation, electronic tendering and evaluation, contract award and to monitor and price the work post contract. b-est™ uses man-hour norms from all of the global fabrication locations along with access to the boqsor™ as-built quantity database to provide detailed class I, II and III estimates for major capital projects both offshore and on-shore within the energy industry www.ogcsglobal.com OGCSOil and Gas Contracts Services OGCS Global provides a complete Contracts and Supply Chain Management Service, which includes Contracts Engineering, Quantity Surveying, and Project Controls to the Global Energy construction industry, with specific focus on the Upstream Oil and Gas sector. Our boqsor™ software package is a Unit Rate Contracting system designed for producing Bill of Quantities and Schedule of Rates specifically for the Oil, Gas and Energy sectors. Introduction About boqsor™ The system provides
  3. 3. The original boqsor™ system was developed during the early days of the Oil and Gas industry in the UK North Sea for the Commercial Management of large scale Offshore Fabrication Projects. This innovative concept was prompted by the demand for a structured approach to obtaining reliable fixed price bids when little design definition was available. boqsor™ was the basis for the benchmark publication “Spons – Fabrication Norms for Offshore Structures” which became the industry bible in the 1980’s and 90’s for estimating, tendering and commercial administration of offshore fabrication contracts. The structure and principles developed by boqsor™ now form the basis of most other software applications in use within the industry, yet it still retains its pedigree and position as a market leader. Today, continual development, innovation and improvement mean that boqsor™ is the Unit Rate Contracting and Estimating package for the new era of Global Fabrication Projects. boqsor™ has been designed to interface with PDMS and most 3D design model systems to efficiently harvest and apply cost codes to quantity data as the design develops. Quantities are “measured” by discipline and the flexibility of the boqsor™ system allows allocation of quantities into a pre-developed Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) which can be by module, deck, level, area etc. The WBS is designed to mirror the project structure to provide information to seamlessly feed into the project cost reporting systems. This interface provides a significate cost and man-power saving over the traditional quantity measurement activity. www.ogcsglobal.com OGCSOil and Gas Contracts Services Harvesting Quantities as the design develops PDMS/3D Model Interface boqsor™ history OGCS has an extensive in-house database of fabrication Quantities across all types of construction including Jackets, Topsides, FPSO’s FPU’s, Subsea and Onshore Plants which can be modeled to produce accurate bills of quantities where little or no design information is available.
  4. 4. It allows various levels of class estimate to be prepared and refined as more project engineering information becomes available. b-est™ has access to an extensive library of historical out-turn quantity data from global projects both onshore and offshore as well as man-hour norms for all major global fabrication areas including Gulf of Mexico, Far East and Korea, Middle East, Northern and Southern Europe. With access to this unique set of data, from projects similar by type and/or location, coupled with the extensive in-house experience of OGCS personnel, accurate estimates can be produced at all levels of detail. The b-est™ system is structured to roll seamlessly up or down between Class I, II or III estimates as better definition on the project design becomes available. The system can therefore be utilised at any point in the project lifecycle from conceptual estimates at pre- FEED, through the Detailed design Phase and into Construction and Execution OGCS utilises man-hours in the preparation of estimates because in the very competitive world fabrication market there can be extreme price volatility whereas in our experience hours to execute work tend to be stable. Once the man-hour content of the project has been established then the most appropriate commercial rates can be used. www.ogcsglobal.com OGCSOil and Gas Contracts Services About b-est™ The boqsor™ estimating module b-est™ facilitates construction cost estimates of Capex developments for major oil and gas projects. b-est™ and boqsor™ are designed to interface seamlessly between front end project estimating, a unit rate contracting model, electronic tendering and tender evaluation and post contract administration and management.

  5. 5. boqsor™ is an extremely powerful tender evaluation tool. Once the electronic priced schedules are received from all the bidders they are a loaded into the tender evaluation module. boqsor™ can then run detailed analysis and comparison on a rate by rate basis across all bidders highlighting where an individual rate varies significantly from the average or from the lowest rate identifying rogue rates or strategic bidding. Pre-determined growth sensitivity scenarios can also be run to identify the impact that quantity chage (sp) +/- may have on individual bids. OGCS hold extensive in-house data from previous projects providing detailed Bills of Quantities across all facilities including Jackets, Topsides, FPSO, FPU and Subsea Equipment. For new projects where little design definition is available these model bills can be manipulated to become project specific using key information such as weight reports, P&ID’s, piping line lists, specifications etc Once the agreed project specific schedules of rates and bills of quantities have been incorporated into the tender documents they can be issued electronically to bidders either with the boqsor™ tender module or in excel format. Bidders price all items within the schedules both with manhour norms and currency values. This automatically prices the linked bills of quantities to provide the tender value. the approximate bills of quantities can be updated at strategic points within the design process at AFC and ultimately to reflect the as built scenario. At all times the system will automatically apply the fixed unit rates to provide an updated contract price. There are options within the system to calculate progress payments and any Variation Order can be evaluated as a “mini bill of quantities” priced at the unit rates. boqsor™ will support all commercial aspects of the project through to final account. www.ogcsglobal.com OGCSOil and Gas Contracts Services Unit Rates boqsor™ Functions & Capabilities boqsor™ holds a library of discipline unit rates that over the years have become the standard commercial breakdown structure within the oil and gas industry. These rates can be modified to be project specific and to cover every possible eventuality that may be encountered within a particular project as the design develops. Each unit rate will come with its own detailed method of measurement and pricing preamble which advises bidders exactly what cost categories should be included. In addition to quantity data OGCS also have current unit rate norms and pricing information from all the major oil and gas fabrication locations globally including Northern and Southern Europe, Gulf of Mexico, Middle East, Asia Pacific and Korea. Once an acceptable model bill of quantities has been developed this can then be populated at the detailed level with the relevant unit rates and norms to provide reliable conceptual and bid check estimates. Standard and Flexible Unit Rate Library Bill of Quantity Production using historical data where limited design information is available Preparation of Feasibility and Bid Check Estimates Electronic Tendering Unit rates in both man-hours and currency values Tender Evaluation Detailed Rate Analysis and Comparison Extensive Sensitivity Analysis Post Contract Commercial Administration Quantity Updates Evaluation of Change and Variations Progress Payments Final Account Estimates Tender Evaluation Bill of Quantities Post Contract Administration Electronic Tendering
  6. 6. The scope of the project is broken down, discipline by discipline, into each work unit activity. These activities are tabulated in a grid format which should cover every eventuality that maybe anticipated within the design. The Unit Rate Schedules are priced on the basis of completion of a quantity of one by the contractor. That may be metres of pipe or cable, number of welds or terminations. Each item in the bill of quantities has an 11 digit code which extracts the description and the rate directly from the unit rate library and automatically provides a priced bill of quantities As well as the currency rate the contractor also provides the manhour norm for each schedule item so that the bills of quantities can also be “priced” in manhours and linked to the schedule for the project www.ogcsglobal.com OGCSOil and Gas Contracts Services boqsor™ methodology boqsor™ uses the .NET technology (Microsoft .net framework) and currently supports Microsoft SQL Server 2012 multiple instances/ multiple database configurations. SQL Server allows data to be centrally managed, with remote copies of the application displaying and manipulating the BoQ information. With the .NET technology, boqsor™ is a Multiple-Document Interface (MDI) application and includes the Microsoft standard Windows menu controls. boqsor™ is a menu driven database application which can be run either from a stand-alone laptop or on a server. It allows full data sharing for multiple users based on individual security settings. Specification and technology
