Summit Petroleum awards data management contract to 4Projects

Friday, February 11, 2011

Collaborative software company 4Projects has been appointed by Summit Petroleum Ltd to provide document control and collaboration tools across its business.

Summit Petroleum, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation, is exploring, developing and producing oil and gas assets in the North Sea, with a current net production of 7000 boepd from five fields - Elgin/Franklin, Wytch Farm, Cook, Pierce and Janice/James.            

Richard Inwards, IT & Database Manager of Summit Petroleum, said: “Initially it is our intention to store all our commercial and legal documentation for the UK oil field assets in which we are involved. For some of these we are just a participating partner whilst for others we are the operator and have a compliance duty to manage the documents.”

“4Projects collaboration software will be used as a central document store with some need for document sharing and information dissemination. There will be some collaborative working on the operated assets in 2011 as they become active, and this will allow us to share that information easily with the partners and suppliers involved in the projects, as well as our head office in Tokyo.”

Established in 2000, 4Projects has provided Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for a range of construction and energy projects in the UK and across the world, from its offices based in Sunderland, London, Washington DC, Dallas, Calgary, Toronto and Bahrain.
Collaboration Software as a Service (SaaS) involves having easy but secure access to a tool that is deployed over the internet from a remote vendor. As the supplier hosts both the server and the tool they take on the responsibility of upgrading the technology, providing adequate storage and keeping the system secure and reliable.
