The oil & gas sector is going through significant changes and particularly challenging times. Risk-averse investors are choosing mid-caps that can demonstrate that they are making the right strategic decisions, have a strong hold on budgets and provide full transparency of their financial transactions.
In order to succeed in this environment, companies need a robust financial management solution like Infor SunSystems that can be implemented quickly and smoothly by subject matter experts. This solution must reflect the financial needs of these companies, their accounting and commercial arrangements, providing the necessary financial transparency to investors, joint venture partners and other interested parties. In times of change or rapid growth, it’s important that the finance system takes the strain, automating processes – reducing administration time and ensuring data accuracy.

Progressive in Action
New Age (African Global Energy)
Progressive TSL worked with the African exploration & production company New Age (New African Global Energy) to implement a consistent, standardised, automated financial and procurement management suite. The Progressive solution incorporates Infor SunSystems across all six sites and Infor EAM and Infor OS software products across three of these sites.
“Progressive TSL have worked closely with the New Age team in the UK, Cameroon and Congo to turn around a previous SunSystems and Infor EAM implementation. Our accounting and procurement processing has been simplified and automated – improving efficiency whilst gaining budgetary control and full visibility of transactions. We are very proud of the new Progressive solution, which should support New Age for many years into the future.”

Seplat is a leading Nigerian independent oil & gas exploration and production company. They required the ability to demonstrate excellent financial management with robust controls and procedures – responding confidently to the demands of investors and the markets by reporting financial statements accurately and quickly. Seplat were keen to find the right consultancy partner for this project – this meant the right oil &gas business systems experience and a willingness to resource the project with a team in Nigeria.

Working closely with the Seplat teams, Progressive developed a solution covering both the IT systems & infrastructure and any changes to ways of working that would drive maximum benefit from the solution.
