The oil and gas industry is currently facing a real problem of profitability. There are several reasons for this: the oil industry is emerging from an unprecedented crisis, shale gas is not yet profitable for some. Indeed, the price of a barrel of oil has been falling sharply, for several years. The competitiveness of this industry is therefore strongly questioned.
At the same time, the oil and gas projects engaged to ensure the energy transition are characterized by their extreme complexity. They involve a large number of stakeholders and require huge investments. Added to this is the security dimension. Indeed, different levels of confidentiality of each stakeholder must be preserved for critical information while allowing a consolidated view to ensure optimal management of the infrastructure.
Finally, the hydrocarbon industry is experiencing some digitization delays overall, which is compared to the rest of the industry due to its evolution in silos. This has never been integrated into the benefits of certain new technologies such as digital.
Thus, for the sector, the final exit from the crisis and the road to the future, as well as for a passage to a better sharing of information and collaboration between stakeholders.
The digitization of all processes is a great opportunity to collaborate better, increase productivity through better asset management, reduce downtime, solve problems faster, drastically reduce maintenance costs of remote installations often difficult to access – especially in exploration / production, etc.
The hydrocarbon sector, in search of innovation, is looking for new business models. Digital makes it possible to make the most of the data generated by Big Data. It promotes the creation of new services generating additional income. Industry players could then move with their stakeholders towards new business models.
How UERP responds to these issues
UERP is a collaborative platform for process digitization that responds precisely to these needs within a single tool. Through adapted modules, it manages all the internal and external processes and procedures, including the most critical, of a hydrocarbon group, from exploration-production to the refinery, without forgetting the logistics (storage, transport and distribution), from end to end via the use of a smartphone or tablet.
The UERP platform addresses the global and specific challenges of the oil and gas industry by creating personalized mobile applications dedicated to each issue, in 23 languages while securing its data through a single access point. By using the digital twin approach, UERP can create 80% of the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) extremely fast thanks to zero-code technology.
“UERP makes it possible to optimize the process to its finest level and to bring intelligence”
UERP enables employees and stakeholders to access data in real time, simplifying procurement, communication and creation processes. In addition, UERP facilitates and controls quality and safety functions while significantly reducing production costs.
It supports all critical processes such as maintenance, quality control, checklists, security, decision support, equipment reports, spare parts management, service requests, and more.
UERP: interconnection with business software
UERP APIs simplify sending data collected via UERP mobile applications to business software packages. Thanks to the modular structure of UERP’s applications, it is easy to assemble “à la carte” and for each operating or production site the APIs specific to the business software programs involved in this specific framework.
