ERP for the Oil and Gas Industry (Upstream) Software Evaluation Report

The model of ERP systems for the upstream oil and gas sector addresses the particularly specialized business model of this industry.

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.
