AGR - P1
AGR Solution Systems (AGR SS) is a division of the AGR
Group and a leading provider of services and technologies to the
oil & gas industry.
AGR SS had developed a successful software application, called
P1™, used by engineers to analyse and manage the risks and
opportunities for the construction of wells. Due to this success
AGR SS decided it was worthy of a major upgrade. But when this
activity was outsourced to an overseas company, they became
increasingly unhappy with the quality of work and costs
AGR SS decided to look closer to home for a company to take over
P1™'s future development. We were initially approached to carry out
a technical appraisal of the system. Following the success of
this, we jumped at the chance to take over its
Since then, we have carried out:
- Performance improvments for P1 version
- A technical re-write for P1 version
- New features - including a new
Monte-Carlo engine, increasing simulation speeds 100 fold
- Microsoft Windows 7
- A licensing system enabling tailored
Petter Mathisen, VP of AGR SS, commented: "P1™ is used by over
30 oil and gas companies worldwide and also internally by AGR SS,
so this was a valuable project that we awarded to Codify. The
re-write has resulted in a more stable system that is fast,
self-contained and can be used on different platforms.
"Four of the top oil and gas companies in the world already use
it throughout their planning process. One of our clients has
improved budgetary costing and delivered the well construction
portfolio to within 2.5% of plan using P1™.
"The software is solid, engineers like using it and it is
becoming a standard tool in the workplace, and I'm pleased to say
that Codify has played a vital part in achieving that."
