CFIHOS Reach-out Chevron 31 Oct 2016 (2)

Capital Facilities Information Handover Specification (CFIHOS) Forum

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?



Discover why BP, Chevron, INPEX, Shell and Total are collaborating on


USPI-NL1 is delighted to announce that on Monday 31st October they will be holding an out-reach event in Houston, this Special Interest Group event is hosted by Chevron at their 1400 Smith Street location downtown:

CFIHOS is the Capital Facilities Information Hand Over Specification project!

A group of interested parties that include AmecFW, BP, Chevron, DSM, EDF, Fujitsu, INPEX, Mitsubishi, Shell and Toshiba have formed a core team. The intent is to refine and agree what constitutes a pragmatic useable Information Hand Over Specification with supporting Reference Data Library, which an owner operator might use as a starting framework to engage Capital Project supply chain vendors. During the bid process it is essential to specify what is required as a final deliverable, to ensure delivery of a digital asset that mirrors the physical asset as constructed and commissioned.

All 30 places are fully booked. 

Meeting topics will include: 

  • What is CFIHOS?
  • What does the deliverable look like and when can you get it?
  • How is it of value to Owners / Contractors / Equipment suppliers’ / Software vendors
  • Q&A with panelists

Who will attend?

  • Information, Data & Document Managers / Controllers
  • Projects, Operations & Engineering Managers
  • Asset Managers
