Project review

Comprehensive implementation of software solutions for an oil service company in Iraq

Kurdistan Pipeline Company Pte. Ltd. (“KPC”) was established in 2017 to manage and operate an export pipeline in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq for a period of 20 years in accordance with the Concession Agreement signed between KPC and the Kurdistan Regional Government (Iraq). The company operates the Kurdistan Crude Oil Pipeline (KCP), which receives crude oil from several oil fields and has several stations with two feeder lines.

The project primarily included functional blocks: Local accounting and tax accounting, International accounting, Treasury, Procurement, Reporting. The introduction of these functional blocks made it possible to significantly reduce paperwork, reduce labor costs for accounting and reporting, and organize the activities of the procurement department.

Strategically, the success of the first stage of automation made it possible to increase customer confidence in the software products of the 1C family and to announce the 1C: Enterprise platform for automating the second stage of functional blocks: Procurement Management (tenders), Supplier Self-Service Portal, Warehouse, Claims Management, Document Flow, Management personnel, Accounting and payroll, Occupational safety, ITSM.

The idea of implementing an employee’s personal account was a great success. This module is the company’s most popular application; in the first month, more than 650 Vacation Requests were issued.

After ensuring all the associated accounting processes were automated, the main block of the company’s activities - pipeline maintenance - was subjected to automation. The 1C:ERP WE repair management subsystem was taken as a basis. Planning scenarios and task generation mechanisms were developed, the pipeline structure was introduced into the system and normalized, and maintenance schemes were developed and recorded. Within the Repair Management block, more than 75 jobs have been automated.

Total labor costs of the project team (customer and contractor): 230,500 man-hours.
