ABSTRACT

OMV Petrom S.A. is the largest integrated oil and gas company in Romania, having
Exploration and Production activities (onshore and offshore) in Romania as well as in
Kazakhstan and Russia. In 2004 Petrom S.A. became part of the OMV Group, the
largest oil and gas producer in Central - Eastern Europe.

To find, develop and operate new production, an oil and gas company must understand
needed infrastructure, business conditions and environmental factors within a given
geographic framework.

The OMV Petrom GIS group’s duty of managing large and complex data sets, all
related to spatial information, is essential for fast and safe implementation of new
business projects. It is proved that using GIS in an oil and gas company is adding
substantial value to e.g. project management.

The so called E&P WebGIS was implemented for the company wide use of GIS data,
developed by SynerGIS Informationssysteme GmbH, ESRI’s distributor in Austria. The
system allows user access, within the Intranet of OMV Petrom, for onshore and offshore
projects, to visualize, search and generate reports & maps, via this application from the
central Geodatabase, which is updated permanently. The E&P WebGIS application was
also integrated with OMV Petrom’s standard electronic document management system
(eDMS).

The paper presents which are the main steps taken for the implementation of the GIS
system within OMV Petrom, as well as the dedicated workflows and GIS community of
users.

Keywords: GIS, WebGIS, maps, geodatabase, ESRI
