“Total E&P Awards Atos Origin Applications Maintenance Contract for Seismic Software”
Paris, 19 December, 2005
Total, the world's fourth-largest oil and gas company, has awarded Atos Origin a contract to provide applications maintenance services for the software used in the Exploration & Production business to process seismic and deep-imaging data, as well as global user support services.
The two-year, renewable contract covers seismic interpretation, seismic processing and deep imaging, representing several dozen applications, more than a million lines of code to maintain and several hundred users requiring support worldwide.
Total has exploration and production operations in 44 countries, with E&P teams continuously analyzing sedimentary basins worldwide. Total E&P was therefore seeking a single service provider to manage applications maintenance and provide user support. The resultant optimization will enhance application management and functional follow-up, as well as enable the more efficient management and reduction of maintenance costs.
Atos Origin's technical proficiency in information services and its knowledge and understanding of oil exploration and production businesses have made it a preferred partner to support Total E&P outside France while delivering superior service over the long term.
Atos Origin has been selected by Total E&P to deploy this strategic project because the proposed solutions offer end-to-end control over the application base.
Total is the fourth largest oil and gas company in the world with operations in more than 130 countries. Total's activities cover the whole energy chain of the petroleum industry: exploration, oil and gas production, refining and marketing, trading and power generation. The Group is also a major player in chemicals. Total has more than 111,000 employees worldwide. More information can be found on the company's website: www.total.com
