At a Glance

An oil and gas exploration and production startup with significant private equity backing comprised of former industry executives engaged Credera to conduct a software selection, design and deploy corporate and field infrastructure, and implement nine software systems concurrently to facilitate real-time monitoring of operations. Credera’s assessment helped lead the oil and gas company to more than $1 million in infrastructure savings, and the newly implemented systems allowed the client to enable real-time maintenance of over 200 natural gas wells. At the time of Credera’s engagement, the company consisted of five employees and was undertaking a $1.2 billion asset purchase.

The Challenge

Maintaining operational efficiency.

An oil and gas company needed to modernize their systems in order to enable real-time maintenance. Credera was engaged to perform primary systems selection, design the necessary infrastructure, assist in the data migration efforts, and provide advisory support for organizational structure and budget forecasting. This was followed by an implementation of nine software systems and the deployment of organization-wide infrastructure. ​

The Solution

Implementing nine, upgraded software systems.

Credera conducted vendor discovery, demonstrations, and selection to meet the oil and gas company's needs. Next, the team conducted cross-vendor planning for the implementation phase.
