PR – ESS the leading provider of
Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) and Crisis Management software
for Governance, Risk and Compliance,
today announced that China
National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) has selected ESS enterprise
software as its comprehensive, integrated information management
platform for business sustainability and compliance across the company’s
CNPC will implement ESS software at facilities throughout mainland
China. The system will support upstream and downstream oil and gas,
oilfield services, engineering and construction, petroleum material and
equipment manufacturing and supply operations. IBM Global Services will
conduct the project deployment.
The ESS platform, which has been translated into Mandarin for use in
China, includes a full spectrum of solutions to support CNPC corporate
initiatives for multimedia emissions control —
including greenhouse gas and carbon management —
as well as health and safety incident mitigation and prevention, EH&S
performance management and emergency planning/response management.
CNPC selected ESS based on the successful implementation of ESS software
at PetroChina (NYSE:
PTR). PetroChina’s implementation represented
a major landmark as the first enterprise-wide compliance and risk
management software deployment of its kind in the country. ESS’
integrated software platform enabled PetroChina, the world’s
largest company by market capitalization, to increase productivity by
driving process improvements that generated time and cost savings while
also improving management decision making.
Robert Johnson, CEO of ESS, stated, “CNPC
officials chose ESS following an extensive review of available EH&S
software products on the marketplace. Companies worldwide —
such as CNPC and PetroChina — are selecting
our integrated enterprise platform because we deliver proven, reliable
solutions that reduce complexity, risks and costs.
“We are excited about this major deployment
in China as yet another milestone demonstrating how ESS software is
transforming the way companies manage EH&S and emergency management
information on both a tactical and strategic level to ensure business
sustainability,” Johnson said.
