"GIS software clearly has much to offer to the location-dependent complex workflows of the oil and gas industry," said Geoff Wade, petroleum industry manager at ESRI. "CygNet has demonstrated both thought and technical leadership in the evolution of its enterprise operations platform and we are thrilled about the combined value enhancement we will be able to deliver, particularly to the production and pipeline operations space through this innovative integration. We very much look forward to working with CygNet to further develop appropriate solutions for our respective and joint client base."
CygNet was featured during the plenary session of the 2009 ESRI Petroleum User Group (PUG) Conference, held Feb. 23-25 in Houston. There, the company jointly demonstrated with ESRI an integrated workflow involving both GIS and SCADA to the conference's 1,300 attendees.
The CygNet enterprise operations platform is currently used by more than 100 leading companies across oil and gas exploration, production and gas transportation to improve operational efficiency and market responsiveness. Based on a proven, revolutionary network architecture, users across every business function can prioritize and analyze massive amounts of real-time and historical information to support daily operations, strategic decision making and regulatory reporting requirements.
The ESRI Developer Program is designed for companies developing commercial off-the-shelf solutions that tap ESRI's ArcGIS software, the world's leading GIS technology. Program members are typically industry and technology leaders and gain access to exclusive partner and marketing resources, discounted advertising in ESRI publications, and the opportunity to exhibit at the ESRI International User Conference and the ESRI Worldwide Business Partner Conference.
"'Location, location, location' is just as important to oil and gas companies as it is to home buyers," said Steve Robb, vice president of business development at CygNet. "The integration of ESRI's GIS capabilities will enable us to provide our customers with a completely new layer of information that will help them manage their distributed assets more efficiently and effectively."
