BP has signed a contract with Indian suppliers Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Infosys for application development and application maintenance.
Over the past 12 months. the energy giant has consolidated the high number of vendors it employed down to a few larger contracts.
TCS will handle application development and application maintenance for refining, manufacturing and corporate IT maintenance work.
Infosys will handle application development and application maintenance work in the integrated supply and trading, and exploration and production businesses.
BP Group chief information officer Dana Deasy said the contracts will help BP to reduce complexity, standardise processes and lower costs.
“In awarding Infosys application development work for our Integrated Supply and Trading and Exploration and Production businesses we look to benefit from their knowledge of the oil and gas sector," she said.
"Additionally, we see opportunities for TCS to help us deliver IT solutions to enable our upstream and trading businesses.”
The energy and utilities vertical of TCS has 30 customers worldwide, including Australian firm AGL Energy. The supplier also works with oil field service operators to help them increase the production and reliability of upstream operations.
