HOW WE HELP INVESTORS

As an investor in the Upstream Oil and Gas sector, you need to know that your money is well spent on exploration and production, not expensive and complex IT projects.

The Lumos 365 platform for Upstream Oil and Gas does just that. It provides a rapidly deployed fit for purpose solution that scales readily across the value chain as the Joint Venture partners move towards production or divestment.

FOCUS ON PROFIT

As an Investor, you need to ensure profit is the core focus of exploration and production operations. We ensure Operators are always delivering operational excellence throughout the value chain, ensuring a maximum return on your investment.

RELIEVE CUMBERSOME PROCESSES

Our platform supports Operators through a strategic digital transformation to ensure their exploration and production activities aren’t held back by cumbersome processes and systems. This fuels efficiency and maximises the profit potential of your investment.

FREE UP WORKING CAPITAL

Your investment needs to be targeted at exploration and production activities that increase returns, not expensive IT projects. We ensure software spend is phased in line with operations, significantly reducing upfront expenditure that drains working capital.

TOPLINE BENEFITS FOR INVESTORS

OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

The Lumos 365 platform for Upstream Oil and Gas is a secure and scalable industry solution built on the Microsoft Cloud. It provides industry best practice, customisable templates, workflows, reporting and analytics for Finance, Supply Chain and Plant Maintenance. The platform enables your Joint Venture partner to drive operational excellence and frees them up to focus on exploration and production. It is designed to drive and support improved controls, compliance and cost recovery reducing the cost of production per barrel.

STRENGTHEN CONTROLS

The Lumos 365 platform benefits from many features such as AFE management, budget checking and contract spend monitoring. With best of breed workflows, we support these activities from a process and productivity perspective. The Lumos 365 Management Reporting and Analytics module provides customisable templates with online, up to date key business metrics such as ‘Spend by AFE’ in dashboards and drill down data reports. This ensures that invested funds are managed effectively within the Joint Venture partnership to minimise waste or profit leakages and maximise returns.

ENSURE COMPLIANCE

The license to explore imposes significant contractual obligations on both the Joint Venture partners. These relate to local content and local tax regulations. A breach of these obligations can result in significant penalties for the joint venture company. The Lumos 365 Management Reporting and Analytics module will facilitate clear reporting on operational matters affecting compliance ensuring that cash investments contribute to production not penalties. The Lumos 365 platform will ensure compliance with regulatory policies, such as Local Content and taxation through correct tax code allocations as part of our standard best practice templates, protecting your investments for operational purposes.

UP AND DOWNSCALE

Volatility requires operational agility and the ability to up and downscale supporting software licensing without financial penalty. Our Finance, Supply Chain and Plant Maintenance solution will not only support operational excellence to plug profit leakages but provide this flexibility. Our modular approach allows Finance, Supply Chain and Plant Maintenance to be added at the appropriate time as the operation moves from exploration and into production and throughout the value chain right up until a point of divestment, when appropriate.

OPTIMISE YOUR INVESTMENT

It is imperative that invested funds are put to good use as quickly as possible with a focus on areas that will produce the greatest return in the shortest time possible. The Lumos 365 Platform for the Upstream Oil and Gas Sector aims for an 80% industry fit from day one. This significantly reduces upfront consultancy fees and puts in a place an on-going subscription-based model for the platform and support. Invested funds are freed up to focus on Exploration and Production activities and generating returns, rather than expensive, slow and cumbersome IT projects.

HOW OUR CLOUD PLATFORM WORKS

From acquisition to abandonment, the Lumos 365 platform addresses and overcomes the challenges you face at every stage of the value chain. Cutting costs. Maximising efficiency. Extending agility. Our platform powers your business processes, adding more value to your operations.

ACQUIRE

Retrieving critical information from disparate systems with poor connectivity. Structuring financial master data. Extracting reports from acquired assets for analysis. Migrating financial and operational data. Utilising modules designed specifically to meet these challenges, our platform cuts cost, time and risk. MORE

EXPLORE

With a license granted, the need to structure, capture and manage a whole new raft of activities becomes imperative. Our modules create a sound financial supply chain system, laying the foundation for operational excellence moving forward to development and operation. MORE

APPRAISE

Getting a clear picture when spend visibility is poor. Retrieving, collating and exchanging information with third party service companies. Extracting and analysing management reports. It’s time and labour intensive. Our modules enable fast and easy spend tracking and data collaboration. MORE

DEVELOP

Managing significant CAPEX expenditure, JV partners, cost recovery, HSE, budgets and reporting creates the need to extend supply chain functionality to support and optimise the field development plan and sourcing. Our modules do just that, making management straightforward. MORE

OPERATE

This is where the foundations built earlier in the value chain with our platform really drive operational excellence. You gain control, cost recovery and compliance with process optimisation, while improving asset up time and reliability. MORE

TRADE

Poor control, recording and tracking of CAPEX, OPEX and G&A spend. Delayed delivery, poor sourcing, resources wastage and profit leakages. Compromised asset reliability and integrity. Lack of insights to support decision making. Our modules overcome every challenge. MORE

ABANDON

Cost-effective and efficient collation and aggregation of all asset data (contracts, compliance, financial, supply chain and plant) is critical. Our modules bring all this data together to maximise abandonment efficiency, save executive time and support due diligence. MORE
