Juniper GTL Project Overview

Juniper GTL ProjectJuniper GTL of Houston is converting a dormant steam methane reformer in Westlake, Louisiana to a natural gas-to liquids (GTL) facility, producing clean waxes, drilling fluids, diesel fuel and naptha.

Challenge: Document Management / Information Management

To ensure the Juniper GTL project was completed on time and within budget, the project team needed a solution to the following information management challenges:

Business Challenges

  • Ensuring proper documentation security
  • Enabling reliable communication between stakeholders
  • Meeting short project deadlines
  • Implementing a solution to these issues with limited personnel and resources

Document Management Challenges

  • Difficulties finding the latest version of documents
  • No method to track changes or ensure data integrity
  • No secure document backup
  • No way to control transmittals to external parties
  • No out of office access
  • No way to automate and standardize workflows, processes, and procedures
