Better Business Processes With Oracle Cloud
Midcoast Energy is a full-service natural gas and natural gas liquid midstream company headquartered in Houston, Texas. Its assets include 12,000 miles of gas and NGL pipelines, 25 processing plants, and 12 treating plants. In 2018, the company was formed by an acquisition from Enbridge, Inc.
A Rapid ERP Migration Was Needed
Midcoast Energy was still operating on its prior owner’s Oracle E-Business Suite environment under a transitional services agreement, which gave it a narrow window to implement. The company needed to quickly migrate from the legacy ERP platform to avoid an expensive renewal of the agreement.
Standardizing and simplifying business processes was a key driver, since the existing solution had many customizations that were specific to the oil and gas production business and not necessarily the gas midstream business. More importantly, the company wanted to deploy modern, enterprise-wide best-practice business processes. To support an M&A growth strategy, automation and scalability were also critical.
Based on our successful strategic implementation for another oilfield service company with a very similar Oracle Cloud footprint, Midcoast asked us to help.
