Oil and Gas

Oil and Gas

With dwindling resources and the drive towards global Net Zero Emissions by 2050, oil and gas companies can’t rely on traditional fuel sources anymore. They have to diversify and explore low-emission and renewable fuels not just to be more profitable, but to shore up their reputation against the backdrop of global climate change and energy crisis. Digitalisation and data go hand in hand to revitalise their business models and leverage advanced technologies.


  • Not easy to acquire data, with long lead time for data creation and mass data changes
  • Incorrect asset information has direct impact on reliability maintenance
  • Data-related safety and compliance risks as automation and trustworthy data are required for maintenance programmes
  • Difficult to initiate improvements like digital twins/transformation projects
  • Outdated or incorrect characteristics, hence the need to incorporate industry standards
  • Manual or incomplete handover of assets from engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractors
  • Data knowledge is limited to a few key persons
  • Ineffective collaboration between Procurement and Inventory resulting in poor inventory turnaround and redundant stock
  • Data integrity issues—no validation mechanism across different datasets
  • Data preparation and cleansing for migration—resource constraints and no defined toolsets

Master Data Domains


  • Spares
  • Location
  • Equipment
  • Maintenance plans
  • Tasks
  • BOM
  • Asset-related data sets


  • Supplier and Finance Data
