Doculabs Knows the Oil and Gas Industry
You face a unique combination of content management challenges:
- The need to reduce exploration, development, and operating costs through effective management of information, to enable better decision-making
- Increasing requirements for legislative and regulatory compliance, in the face of heightened environmental concerns, mergers and acquisitions, and potential e-discovery
- Information that needs to be accessible to workers at multiple geographic locations, many of them remote
It's an industry where information management is becoming increasingly critical, particularly for upstream and midstream companies. Upstream, exploration and production projects generate vast volumes of well file documentation, while also requiring maintenance of supporting documents – from SOPs, to bids and proposals, to division orders and land records. Downstream operations involve complex contracts that must be created, reviewed, and managed, plus the documentation associated with facilities and asset management and regulatory submissions.
The key to success in oil and gas is better decision-making. If you're effectively managing the information assets that support those decisions, then you've got a strategic advantage over the competition.
