We are excited about this major deployment in China as yet another milestone demonstrating how ESS software is transforming the way companies manage EH&S and emergency management information on both a tactical and strategic level to ensure business sustainability
TEMPE, Ariz. (PRWEB) January 29, 2008
CNPC will implement ESS software at facilities throughout mainland China. The system will support upstream and downstream oil and gas, oilfield services, engineering and construction, petroleum material and equipment manufacturing and supply operations. IBM Global Services will conduct the project deployment.
The ESS platform, which has been translated into Mandarin for use in China, includes a full spectrum of solutions to support CNPC corporate initiatives for multimedia emissions control -- including greenhouse gas and carbon management -- as well as health and safety incident mitigation and prevention, EH&S performance management and emergency planning/response management.
CNPC selected ESS based on the successful implementation of ESS software at PetroChina (NYSE: PTR). PetroChina's implementation represented a major landmark as the first enterprise-wide compliance and risk management software deployment of its kind in the country. ESS' integrated software platform enabled PetroChina, the world's largest company by market capitalization, to increase productivity by driving process improvements that generated time and cost savings while also improving management decision making.
Robert Johnson, CEO of ESS, stated, "CNPC officials chose ESS following an extensive review of available EH&S software products on the marketplace. Companies worldwide -- such as CNPC and PetroChina -- are selecting our integrated enterprise platform because we deliver proven, reliable solutions that reduce complexity, risks and costs.
"We are excited about this major deployment in China as yet another milestone demonstrating how ESS software is transforming the way companies manage EH&S and emergency management information on both a tactical and strategic level to ensure business sustainability," Johnson said.
