Oil and gas producer Al-Khafji Joint Operations is about to start the second phase of an SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation.

The second phase, worth US$5.27million, covers the design, build, training and deployment of a downstream oil and gas and extended logistics solution.

It involves the deployment of a number of SAP modules including materials management, warehouse management, procurement, maintenance and production planning. It also involves an upgrade to the latest mySAP ERP software.

In the first phase, Al-Khafji, which is jointly owned by Kuwait Gulf Oil and Aramco Gulf Operations, deployed SAP’s finance, human resources and payroll modules.

“We’re doing a second phase extending their ERP solution, leveraging the investment they made initially in SAP. We’re now adding extra modules and allowing them to get the maximum return on the SAP investment,” Peter Hynes, vice president of ERP systems integrator Atos Origin Middle East, which worked on both phases of the project, said.

The second phase of the project is expected to take between a year and 15 months, Hynes said.

He added that the system was replacing a number of legacy systems.
