Mincom Ellipse for Ecopetrol

‘SCAM’ project consolidates internal development to asset management solution.

Australian software house Mincom, better known for its presence in the mining vertical, is expanding its oil and gas portfolio with the extensive deployment of a new release of its asset management tool at Colombian NOC, Ecopetrol. Ecopetrol has deployed Mincom Ellipse to consolidate a multiplicity of internal developments with a centralized solution for its corporate maintenance, materials and accounts payable management system (known by its Spanish acronym, SCAM).

Ecopetrol’s asset management environment comprises some 2,900 users in 32 districts, 320,000 assets at 125 warehouses and 15,500 monthly work orders. The company spent around $100 million to catalogue its 289,000 materials items and spends some $350 million per year on maintenance. Ecopetrol’s activity spans national and international exploration and production and refining for the domestic market and export to the southern US.

Alongside the Ellipse enterprise asset management core module, Ecopetrol has deployed Mincom Enterprise Reporting and Analytics for visibility and Mincom Work Management for maintenance. Ellipse provides ‘out-of-the-box’ integration to leading ERP applications including SAP, used by Ecopetrol’s HR and Finance departments. Australian Woodside is another Ellipse user.
