ERP for the Oil and Gas Industry (Upstream)

The model of ERP systems for the upstream oil and gas sector addresses the particularly specialized business model of this industry. It is common practice for companies, individuals, and government agencies to form partnerships to explore, develop, and share production of oil wells. More often than not, this is a short-term alliance rather than a long-term partnership, and business structuring must therefore be flexible at initial set-up and throughout the lifespan of the venture. This model of ERP systems includes criteria for financials, human resources, production data capture and reporting, maintenance management, and supply chain management (SCM) functionality.

Case Study: Cimarex


Cimarex is a large oil and gas exploration and production company based in Denver, Colorado, with over 1000 employees located across the U.S. With a team of only three engineers and an average of 600 to 700 people on the network at any given time, identifying and evaluating delays while providing a quick response time was an important issue for the engineering team.
