BP is to pilot the use of Houston-based Wellogix’ web-enabled business process management software as a component of its e-transformation ‘e-Trans’ process at its San Juan Basin operations in Colorado and New Mexico. BP is working with key suppliers, Hanover Compression, Flint Energy Services, and Wil-Tech, Inc. to determine the functionality, value, and potential for full scale implementation throughout its North American operations.
Wellogix’ technology (see Oil ITJ Vol. 8 N° 5) automates interactions between operators and service providers by connecting financial and technical data sources. Wellogix software is delivered as a managed service—insulating users from technology change and providing paperless tools tailored to individual businesses.
BP’s Unit Leader Richard Morrison said, ‘Wellogix software will enhance the integration of our field operations and our supply chain management. The tool will provide an electronic link between our work order system and our key suppliers, streamlining the order to invoice to payment cycle. Improved collaboration with the supplier community is critical to meeting future E&P demands for commodities and services.’
Wellogix CEO Ike Epley added, ‘Our software will simplify and enhance BP’s current purchase-to-pay process and will have a positive impact on many facets of their business, including reconciling field tickets to negotiated contracts, introducing compliance features, and establishing online key performance indicators with suppliers. By integrating BP’s existing planning and scheduling software applications with our internet based software, we are introducing a new business model for BP’s onshore operations.’
