BP Honored for Special Achievement in GIS at 2017 Esri International User Conference

REDLANDS, Calif. – BP received the Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Petroleum Industry Award at the 2017 Esri International User Conference for demonstrating a consistent vision, technical leadership, business action and community outreach on a global stage.

“We are honored to present BP with a SAG Award to showcase their outstanding achievement with spatial technology,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. “The Special Achievement in GIS Award recognizes exemplary organizations implementing spatial analytics technology to change the world. Highlighting the good work of users like BP benefits the entire GIS community, and that’s very valuable.”

Esri is the global leader in spatial analytics helping over 350,000 organizations improve their operational and business results.

BP uses GIS technology for spatial thinking and application of geospatial workflows and technology in safely exploring and producing hydrocarbons. Since deploying the GIS technology, BP has seen significant improvements in sharing and integrating data between functions, consistency of data, more analytical capabilities and opportunities, enhanced subsurface workflows and exploration analytics and surveillance.

“One Map is a key digital platform in BP’s Upstream segment,” says Brian Boulmay, Global Geospatial Information Lead. “We have enabled a digital mapping capability that any staff can access anytime, anywhere. Also, we have delivered it in a way that users can leverage managed data and processes as well as add their own data and workflows seamlessly enabling all users to drive new insights and information from their data.”

This award highlights the success of an ongoing partnership between BP and Esri. Earlier this year, Brian Boulmay received the Making a Difference Award at the Esri Petroleum GIS Conference for his dedication to the science, profession and practice of GIS in Oil and Gas.

BP was selected from a field of over 400 energy organizations. SAG Awards honor organizations for their vision, leadership, hard work and innovative use of Esri’s GIS technology. Every year, Esri staff nominate thousands of candidates from around the world for consideration and company President Jack Dangermond selects the finalists.
