Enterprise Information Strategy for Upstream E&P

The Challenge

This global exploration and production company drastically consolidated its operating footprint driving the need to reduce management, standardize processes, and update systems to fit the new leaner operation.

The IT organization needed a clear path to re-structure and update the legacy application portfolio, modernize the architecture and infrastructure, and expand the reporting and analytics capability to support the new operational strategy and region restructuring.

Further complicating efforts were widespread data redundancies and duplicative processes across their infrastructure.

The Solution

The team executed a strategy project that produced an Infrastructure and Architecture Optimization Strategy and Execution Roadmap; as well as a Prioritized Roadmap Project Plan that focused on:

  • Data Integration System Implementation
  • Data Reliability and Availability for Reporting & Analytics
  • Information Governance & Quality Process Development and Implementation

This allowed the client to prioritize their time, efforts, and resources to align with the executive team’s strategic and operational targets.

The Result

The IT organization now has a clear future-state framework and capabilities defined for long term execution and a targeted and trackable plan to achieve the improved information environment.

The client is progressing through the road map, and the efforts are already yielding benefits such as: consistent and trusted data that enables better visibility across the business.

Long term benefits are expected in a variety of areas such as: well life cycle performance and profitability, work-over optimization, well and oil field assets in play vs. idle, field cost & time efficiency by rig and crew.
