Conducted an assessment of the Clients subsurface evaluation software and Information Technology (IT) infrastructure including establishing an inventory of current assets and through development of forward plan of requirements covering two time periods: immediate (1-2years) and long term (2-5years). The Client was new to upstream oil and gas but had acquired positions in a significant number of assets and was in the process of adding to that. The Client now had a need to play an active role in the assets where it had interests to protect its interest and to develop asset value.
We reviewed all available software solutions and options that a company engaged in upstream operations with a sizeable and growing portfolio would need to manage its interests. We also assessed the company’s current IT infrastructure and developed recommendations on the enhancements and expansions that should be made to adequately support the software to be deployed. It was envisaged that the Client would double it personnel complement in this area from 15 to 30 over the planning period.
