BP Canada outsources E&P IM

BP’s Canadian E&P unit is outsourcing its information management to Schlumberger Information Solutions.

BP Canada Energy Company, one of Canada’s largest natural gas producers has entered into a five-year agreement with Schlumberger Information Systems for the outsourcing of all of its E&P information management.


Tom Koleszar, Team Leader for Subsurface Technology with BP Canada said, “BP recognizes the importance of information management. This agreement allows us to align ourselves with a group that has core competence in this area, and to focus on our core exploration and development business. Access to technical data, and its interpretation and integration to support business decisions, is a key lever on productivity in the upstream oil and gas industry. BP values innovation, and this agreement with SIS enhances our ability to be innovative and competitive in all price environments.”

Master data store

SIS will develop and maintain a master data store of BP technical and commercial data, and provide the support services needed to deliver a cost-effective data management solution. SIS personnel will manage service requests from end users, accept, retrieve and distribute information, maintain information stores and archives and integrate information for projects.


Orestes Appel, Canadian operations manager for SIS added, “Partnering with BP allows Schlumberger to showcase its expertise in data management to the Canadian marketplace by demonstrating the ability of Calgary’s Data Management Centre to deliver E&P data management solutions that enable more efficient drilling and more profitable operations.”
