Wintershall - Establishing an IT organization
Wintershall is a German oil and gas company which is a part of the BASF Group. Wintershall has made their own finds which they are about to develop, and in the autumn of 2012 acquired the Brage field from Statoil. In record time they had to establish the necessary business processes and associated roles and IT systems necessary to operate on an oil field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in accordance with requirements and regulations.
Wintershall found a partner with solid experience in what was required by an operator of oil and gas fields. Bouvet has been given the task to design a system portfolio and to lead the implementation of solutions for the operation of Brage and other fields.
The architecture team consists of an enterprise architect, an IT portfolio architect, IT domain architects and process modelers. The development of the organization and the process and portfolio design is performed in close collaboration with the business.
Maintaining the relationship between the governing requirements, information, systems, processes and IT systems in the company’s management system, ensures that the work process envelops all disciplines.
In addition Bouvet is carrying out the projects to implement the various system solutions and transmit information to Statoil’s solutions for Brage.
