    EcoSys for Oil Sands Capital Projects

    In Western Canada’s oil sands industry, the project controls discipline has traditionally used Excel spreadsheets as its main tool. This approach requires analysts to gather, manipulate and report on complex data manually.

    Vista Projects decided to put a stop to Excel-based Project Controls in 2013
    Vista Projects decided to put an end to an Excel-based approach to project controls in 2013 and opted for a customized implementation of EcoSys. Three years later, results are impressive.

    In 2013, Calgary-based engineering firm Vista Projects decided to implement commercial project controls software. Recognizing the potential long-term benefits, Vista knew the solution needed to be flexible enough to meet each client’s unique preferences and specifications, yet still able to provide rigor, standardization and auditability to core project components.

    Vista selected EcoSys due to three main benefits: it significantly reduces the risk of errors, gives project controls specialists more time for analysis, and provides more accurate and timely data.

    Four years later, Vista has used EcoSys to execute over 300 oil sands facility projects with a combined total installed cost (TIC) of over three billion dollars.

    In his presentation, Managing Partner Patrick Reilly will discuss Vista’s EcoSys implementation, how Vista uses EcoSys for project controls and how it fits in with the company’s broader vision of a digital approach to project execution.
