DMS for oil and gas industry

Complex needs require a smart solution.

The oil and gas industry incorporates global supply chains, remote workers, and diverse project stakeholders who rely on real-time access to accurate information and compliance with regulatory and safety requirements.

Without an effective document management solution, owners face productivity losses and safety threats and incur unnecessary overhead from data entry, verifying designs, and reconstruction of design files. The oil and gas industry can leverage document management to mitigate risks, coordinate deliverables from various contractors, control project value chains, and produce auditable records.

A document management system keeps your data and assets organized, accessible, and secure while saving time and reducing costs.

Oil and gas challenges

Oil and gas companies have complex communications needs. Employees are segregated at diverse geographical locations and interact disparately with contractors, suppliers, and other groups. Effective file and information sharing should ease collaboration while ensuring everyone can access the most recent information.

Firms in the oil and gas sector require a reliable and auditable system for their documentation. The level of security and adherence to regulations must be advanced, while the structure and accessibility of records must be intuitive and easy. Pertinent engineers, geologists, stakeholders, and analysts need easy access to data for remote field operations, from conception to disposition, from anywhere in the world.

Since project teams must consult procedure and policy documents and other compliance reports regularly, updating and modifying these documents cannot be an administrative hurdle fraught with risk.

Oil and gas companies maintain vast physical assets and infrastructure, including wells, pipelines, refineries, trucks, and storage facilities. Optimizing these assets and managing logistics ensures the timely delivery of resources and products and smoother business operations.

A comprehensive solution

With a document management system, you’ll have a centralized, safe repository of project files under your full control. Robust permissions capabilities allow you to monitor all data access and modification, keeping your information visible only to authorized individuals and safe from tampering

As you send and receive critical files, your document management system stores everything in an indexed and searchable format, intuitively organized and instantly retrievable.

Centralization makes technical documents available for consultation and modification by team members and enables you to keep a thorough audit trail. A cloud-based infrastructure allows project managers, engineering teams, and subcontractors to collaborate effectively from diverse locations, share plans and project drawings, and get approvals.

Given the significant capital investments in the industry, risk management is paramount. Document management software for oil and gas is your ultimate compliance solution. It allows you to easily manage all your records for tax, HSE, IFRS, or ISO compliance and record retention with less administrative effort.
