Petrobras, Trican sign with OFS Portal

E-commerce supply side grouping to boost Brazilian presence in deal with Petrobras hub.

OFS Portal has signed two significant deals this month. Calgary-based Trican Well Service and two Brazilian units have joined the e-commerce supply-side consortium. The Brazilian deal will govern key aspects of e-commerce between Petrobras, its e-commerce marketplace Petronect and other OFS Portal members. Petronect was created in 2002 by e-Petro, a subsidiary of Petrobras, in partnership with Accenture and SAP.


Petronect president Luis Fernando Mendonca said, ‘OFS Portal members can access bids and promote eCommerce with Petrobras. We welcome OFS Portal’s commitment to open standards, which offer OFS Portal members a common point of access to Petrobras.’


Trican provides a variety of specialized products, equipment and services to the Canadian oil industry. Trican will use OFS Portal’s standards to publish electronic catalogs, making them visible to the community of Portal users.

OFS Portal CEO William Le Sage said, ‘We are expanding our global network by providing industry-leading initiatives for secure e-business processes. API/PIDX standards are critical to reducing costs and friction in upstream e-commerce.’
