Daleel Petroleum Company LLC Achieves Substantial Efficiency Gains with Integrated Enterprise Resource Planning

Daleel Petroleum Company LLC, founded in 2002, is a joint venture company between Mazoon Petrogas SAOC and Mazoon Petrogas that is focused on hydrocarbon reserve exploration and production in concession area Block-5 which is located onshore in the Sultanate of Oman approximately 450 km southwest of Muscat.

After several years of using scattered information systems and numerous manual processes that were inefficient and error-prone, Daleel Petroleum Company wanted to automate, standardize, and align core business processes, including finance, purchasing, inventory, and human resources, with a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Furthermore, the company needed to increase data security and data integrity.

Daleel Petroleum Company deployed Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 to automate core business processes, introduce best practices, and reduce the time required to enter and process data. For example, managers now have fast and accurate online access to monthly management reports to enhance decision-making capabilities, and the system has automated material and service requisition approvals and supplier notifications to reduce manual errors. Further, the company can now easily meet audit requirements with enhanced drilled-down data access and paperless audit processes.

With Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12, Daleel Petroleum Company has substantially increased business performance and growth, and achieved a stronger position in the global oil and gas market.
