A global oil and gas major, a leader in providing drilling and production applications.

Business challenges

Current blowout preventer (BOP) design not suited for high-speed, reliable performance in an offshore environment. Cumbersome and complex operator interface due to:

  • Format inconsistency in software representation and Boolean logic
  • Inflexibility in system configuration and maintenance
  • Manual time series data administration

Genpact solution

  • Created robust controls programming
  • Developed a complex algorithm that creates automatic rules for KPIs
  • Configured data logging on machine-to-machine basis, deployed network protocols for better peer-to-peer communication
  • Automated time series data archives to eliminate manual effort and simplification of the touchscreen user interface

Business impact delivered

  • 5% improvement in efficiency for 2,000+ global installed bases and 400+ annual deployments
  • Improved reliability in BOP designs for offshore drilling operations and better operator experience
