Supermajor Transforms with a Move to Cloud
Following a net zero pledge and ambitious cost reduction target, this Supermajor made the move to cloud to facilitate their dynamic needs and digital vision.
"'EnergySys is a nimble database, which can grow and change as Operations explores new ways of producing wells. This is imperative in today’s oil and gas climate."
Following a Net Zero pledge and ambitious cost reduction targets, this organisation re-evaluated their software. Most of their Hydrocarbon Accounting systems were legacy on-premise solutions that were no longer fit for purpose. They were expensive to maintain and update, relying on a host of consultants and specialists to make changes or upgrades. Infrastructure and IT support was costly and time consuming. This did not align with the digital vision of the group going forward and considered the move to cloud.
Having monitored successful EnergySys implementations at some of their subsidiaries, the wider group decided to deploy the EnergySys Cloud Platform (hosted on AWS) globally. Initially rolling out across 3 assets, these deployments represent a major step in the Supermajor’s journey from legacy on-premises solutions to advanced cloud-native platforms. It is also significant in that the configuration was carried out in its entirety by an internal managed team from the Supermajor.
Implementing EnergySys to deliver Hydrocarbon Accounting for some of their assets has seen an increased efficiency in executing the business processes, improved application supportability and a reduction in the overall cost of ownership of the HA system. The client's team were impressed with EnergySys’ capabilities and the simplicity of how it could be configured to deliver their requirements, including process automation and system auditability.
Going forward, the client see the increased adoption of low-code development platforms like EnergySys as the next key enabler to their reinvention. The self-implementation of EnergySys across the three assets is seen, not only as a brilliant demonstration of the power of EnergySys, but the client's ability to transform.
This is an ongoing project that will see the Supermajor continue to move to cloud from legacy on-premise HCA systems on various assets over the coming years.
