Delivering the Highest Value from Assets in Oil & Gas
The oil & gas sector is facing unprecedented levels of complexity and volatility. Low commodity prices, supply fluctuations, and increased regulation are forcing companies to rethink their approach to asset investment planning and management. Value-based decision making in a transparent, data-driven environment is the formula for success.
Decision analytics solutions help determine when and how much to invest to optimize value in the face of cost pressures, changing macroeconomic conditions, unplanned outages, resource constraints, and fluctuating demand. To meet the needs of today’s stakeholders, oil and gas companies need to strike the right balance between enhancing the safety and reliability of existing assets, while investing in new initiatives to adapt and grow the business. Copperleaf’s enterprise software solutions help organizations optimize investment decisions and direct funding to the activities that will best address all of these key challenges.

Future-proof your investment strategy
“In the short term, companies must maintain capital discipline and the focus on productivity improvements and applying new technology. In the long term, they need to make their portfolios profitable against low break-even prices. Moreover, they’ll need to figure out how to future-proof their overall portfolio, and make it secure amid the transition to a lower carbon world.”
Predict the sustainment needs of diverse assets
Many oil and gas companies struggle to forecast sustainment needs across the diverse asset types that exist within their upstream, midstream and downsteam businesses. C55 provides a long-term view by determining the optimal economic intervention dates for every unique asset, based on age, condition, degradation, and risk profile. C55 considers the total cost of operating, maintaining, refurbishing and replacing the asset, as well as the risks associated with potential failures, throughout its entire lifecycle.
Modular and Configurable
C55 is highly modular and configurable, and integrates seamlessly with existing EAM, APM, ERP, GIS, and a variety of other systems—empowering organizations to turn data into decisions.
