NLI Engineering Oil & Gas Joins Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription Program

Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that Norway-based NLI Engineering Oil & Gas as, a leading supplier of engineering and fabrication services to the oil, gas, and land-based industries, has joined Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription (ELS) program. Bentley’s ELS program grants organizations unlimited access to the entire ELS software portfolio for a fixed annual fee. The portfolio covers all the architectural, engineering, construction (AEC), and geospatial software needs of subscribers, providing building, plant, civil, and geospatial solutions and supporting a managed environment for their AEC and geospatial IT. The total coverage at a fixed, discounted price means that organizations can increase their software productivity and reduce their total AEC and geospatial software costs simultaneously. The unlimited access streamlines AEC and geospatial software administration while the annual term simplifies budgeting and accounting.

Egil Solheim, managing director of NLI Engineering Oil & Gas, said, “By taking full responsibility for projects from concept development to the end product, we provide our clients with worry-free project execution. This results in high quality, distinctive, state-of-the-art project deliverables. However, to accomplish all of this, we need the flexibility to quickly deploy a wide range of advanced AEC software solutions no matter where the project team is located.

“Bentley’s ELS gives us this capability while also saving us time and money. In addition, because Bentley’s software tools are fully integrated and interoperate among themselves as well as with many other vendors’ software, we can work collaboratively across disciplines. This leads to streamlined workflows that increase our productivity and help us deliver our projects on schedule.”

Immediately, Bentley’s ELS will give NLI Engineering Oil & Gas a quick, cost-effective way to offer its clients creative technical alternatives and solutions for all projects. As a strategic benefit, Bentley’s ELS helps organizations such as NLI Engineering Oil & Gas become more agile. Project starts can happen faster and teams can reconfigure more quickly for new opportunities. No-charge pilots allow new technology to be infused into projects more readily. ELS agreements can include partners, extending the agility and multiplying the benefits in global projects.
