Big West Oil selects ARES PRISM enterprise project controls software

Big West Oil, LLC has chosen ARES PRISM project management software to help manage the lifecycle of its refinery’s projects.

BURLINGAME, CA, UNITED STATES, April 22, 2019 / -- Big West Oil, LLC, a high-conversion oil refinery in North Salt Lake City, Utah, has chosen ARES PRISM project management software to help manage the lifecycle of its refinery’s projects. Big West Oil provides fuel products to customers in seven Western states; and its facilities refine crude oil from Utah, Wyoming and Canada.

Big West Oil, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Flying J Management, utilizes ARES PRISM project controls software to deliver dependable forecasts, sophisticated integration, change management control, and performance measurement for their sophisticated refinery projects in real-time. The complex refinery has a daily 35,000 barrel total capacity– meaning Big West Oil’s total daily capacity is 1.47 million gallons of oil.

"We needed software that is to be user-friendly, flexible and sustainable with the corporate online and onsite support," Robert Blair, Project Controls Estimator for Big West Oil, said. "Since Big West Oil has some unique software configurations and applications, there needed to be a solution that would fit those, as well as function within the corporate security policies. Lastly, there needed to be some simple ‘Quick Wins’ in the set-up and implementation. PRISM is all of these."

With ARES PRISM’s Cost Management, Change Management, Procurement, Contracts, Docs modules, being used alongside PRISM Integrator to integrate with their legacy systems, Big West Oil is gaining complete visibility and transparency into its projects’ performance across all levels–C-level, finance, project management, etc.,–providing a highly efficient solution for information and data silos.

"Big West Oil should be able to manage the cost of a project or turnaround event in about as real-time as one can achieve with ARES PRISM," Blair said, "Which will offer management the opportunity to make qualified decisions effectively and efficiently. The software is user friendly, flexible and sustainable, plus, PRISM has very good reporting capabilities and excellent support."
