CGI for Shell, RRC

CGI gets five year global IT/CIO outsourcing deal from Shell and $14 million IT modernization contract from Railroad Commission of Texas.

CGI has seen two major contract wins this month for its IT outsourcing offering in oil and gas. In the UK, Shell has awarded CGI a five year deal for key application services provision in support of Shell’s technical and competitive IT (Tacit) unit. Services cover Shell’s upstream and downstream businesses and IT for capital projects. The deal covers subsurface and wells, engineering and projects, and a technology chief information officer role. Projects and managed services will support Shell globally from primary locations in the Netherlands, North America, the UK and India. CGI has 15 years experience of working with Shell’s different businesses.

CGI was also awarded a two year, $14 million IT modernization contract by the Railroad Commission of Texas. Established in 1891, the RRC has been regulating onshore oil and gas in Texas for over ninety years. The CGI is to help the RRC optimize its regulatory and reporting activity with automated processes, tools and data needed to keep pace with the ‘booming demand for oil and gas production while protecting public safety and the environment.’ The deal targets web-based permitting and more self-service opportunities for users.
